I'm replacing the rear pads on the above vehicle. Right rear was changed
effortlessly other than having to make a tool to retract the caliper. On
the left one I've trid to retract it hundreds of revolutions plus using a
large c clamp. I assume somethings frozen inside. Tiome to buy a new
Also can anyone tell me where the brake pressue regulator is on this car,
a Quattro wagon 1996. The shop manual (CD by Bentley Publising. POS in my
opinion)says its on the left trapizodial arm. I've looked all over the
left and right without seeing it. Perhaps its only on somr models.
For the caliper, it is possible that the piston has moved so far that it
is no longer engaged to the threaded piece. If you have not destroyed
the threads with the C-clamp, the secret is turning with constant
pressure until it reengages.
