    Rear Brakes

    I changed the pads on the front this morning but was unable retract the pistons on the rear. I have done a good bit of research on how to get the electric parking brake to retract. There is a sequence of turning on the key pushing the accelerator pedal down for a few seconds and listening for the motors to engage. This did not work. I tried another sequence of key on push parking break and accelerator pedal key off key on. This didn’t work either. I assume you must have a computer to manipulate the system. Very frustrating. I’m not surprised though because there has not been any consistency in the responses given to people that have posted this issue.

    It’s a 2016 HSE diesel with standard brakes.

    Re: Rear Brakes

    Here's something I posted in another thread, this worked on my vehicle.

    To do any work on the rear brakes you need retract the parking brake by entering the emergency brake service mode. Here's the procedure taken from JRL workshop manual. I have standard brakes fitted, I don't know if the procedure is the same for Brembo?


    This procedure requires the vehicle in the Park or Neutral position, with the ignition turned ON (the engine must be OFF) and the parking brake system in Service Mode.
    Once the rear brake pads or brake discs have been installed, the Service Mode must be cancelled.


    Activate service mode:
    1. Press and hold the parking brake switch in the release position.
    2. Wait 2 seconds.
    3. Press and hold the accelerator pedal in the wide open throttle position.
    4. Wait 2 seconds.
    5. Turn the ignition Off and back On immediately.
    (An audible noise will be heard to confirm that the parking brake has been released in Service Mode.)
    6. Release the accelerator pedal and release the parking brake switch to the neutral position.


    Deactivate service mode:
    1. Press and hold the parking brake switch in the apply position.
    2. Wait 2 seconds.
    3. Press and hold the accelerator pedal in the wide open throttle position.
    4. Wait 2 seconds.
    5. Turn the ignition Off and back On immediately.
    (An audible noise will be heard to confirm that the parking brake has been released from the Service Mode.)
    6. Release the accelerator pedal and release the parking brake switch to the neutral position.
