I`m going to do my rear discs and pads tomorrow and was wondering if i can do one wheel at a time instead of lifting the whole car up on axle stands as i only have one is this okay to do.

Many thanks

Yes, you can, but if Auto, you should put the car out of Park and into Neutral so that you can trun the rear wheel OK.

To do that, do everything else you nee dto do, remove the fuse etc, then the piece of plastic that is behind the EPB switch, that small panel comes off (Lift upwards).

Then with your finger, put it in the whole and aim it towards the D on the gear panel. You shoudl find a piece of plastic that you can lift upwards. You shoudl be able to move the gear lever into Neutral now. Just remember to hav ethe wheels well chocked. Thumbs Up

Thanks everyone for all this info. Ive just had my EPB jam on. Luckily it released itself after a few shunts back & forth. Now to undertake what soulds like a fair bit of Censored under that back of the Disco.

Dont you just luv them ! Rolling with laughter

I just followed your procedure for rear disc and pads replacement and the severe vibration you felt when test driving my disco after doing a fantastic job on the front wheel bearings and disc replacement. Turns out the passenger rear EPB shoes were binding so one to watch out for. Have adjusted the rear EPB shoes as per your write up and the rear is a lot better and quieter with no vibs.

Just changed my rotors and pads with Bodsy brake bible instructions at my side. Really easy job that took me about 3.5 hours. The first 45 minutes was trying to get both sides up on jack stands without tires touching the ground.

Screamer fault but shoes apparently not worn just dirty

Was really hoping to get this resolved before posting but I'm now completely stuck.
I got a screamer for the first time on D3 2008 this weekend, brakes locked on, unable to free it.
I had to pull the manual release cord in order to get the vehicle home.

Adjusted both shoes as per Bodsy Brake Bible on Saturday, but now the single scream,
seems to alternate rapidly between each side for about 5 seconds and then I get
the same 'Parking Brake fault system inoperative' on the dash.
I'm unable to engage the EPB when stationary (fault on dash) but if you engage it while moving slowly,
it will bring the car to a halt without the scream, although the shoes do sound worn.
So my assumption was that they were.

Car was booked in to an indy this am for an MOT and service anyway, but indy said that the shoes didn't appear to
be worn just gunked up and said they'd need to start stripping everything down to track down the fault
as the 'scream was unusual and couldn't be the shoes!'

I couldn't possibly handle the bill for this and their apparent lack of knowledge over what the fault usually is,
freaked me out, so I just asked them to complete the service and hold the MOT for now.

So....if I do a shoe replacement and proper adjustment at the weekend is this likely to cure the fault?
If not, is replacing the EPB module the only course of action open to me and can that be done
by a fairly competent DIYer? Basically what should I do next guys ??

Any advice appreciated!

If it has only just started screaming, your EPB module is probably OK and replacement of the shoes will cure it.

If they've not stripped the brakes I'm not sure how they can judge they are only dirty and not worn/in pieces/etc. Confused

Do you know the last time they were done?

I had a similar issue.

In the end I stripped them down myself, the pins which should have been present to retain the shoes had corroded and were not to be found. The screeching was intermittent at this stage. Sometimes they worked ok, other times they screeched and woke all the neighbours cats and dogs.

With the pins having surted to failure the arms on the shoes had seized, I got new pins and clips from advanced factors, freed off all the mechanisms on the brake, put it all back together and adjusted it correctly.

End cost was less than £10 and a couple of hours of my time.

If you can disengage your handbrake a good clean and proper setup could be all you need.

Hi Martin - I figure that they may not have even looked at them, probably just had the wheels off if I had to hazard a guess.

I've never changed the shoes and the car's on 55K now and I've had it since about 30K.
Its just used for normal driving so I figured they'd last for ever(ish) Smile

I did the rear disk pads @ £45K but didn't realise that I should probably have adjusted the EPB back then as well. As its an automatic EPB it can't be left on accidentally so I never expected them to get worn.

When the fault occurred I applied them whilst moving slowly, and they sounded as rough as hell and I immediately assumed that they were worn and that was the problem.

Best of luck,

Go carefully, Bodsy's brake bible is an excellent guide and comes highly recommended, it goes into great detail on how to remove pads etc Thumbs Up
