I'm tring to replace rear brake pads on a 2008 VW rabbit.I've tried to compress the rear brake caliper piston with no luck. I suspect the parking break mechanism in the caliper needs to be reset but don't know how. Can you help.
Year: 2008Make: VolkswagenModel: rabbit

If you dont have the tool shown you can rent the tool from your local part store for a small fee remeber to turn the caliper piston clockwise.
