Hello guys,

I want to replace my rear discs and brake pads, and I have an electric parking brake.

Are there any worries I need to take care of regrading the electronic parking brake?

Because I was a little confused while reading about the mentioned issue.

Thanks in advance.

I recently replaced all 4 discs and pads in my 2006 mk1 and I am not sure how the handbrake is set up on the later models (mine has a manually operated foot handbrake) but I HAD to also replace the handbrake shoes as although they were only partially worn, the bonding was coming away between the shoe and the friction material

I hope this is some help

Edit - The procedure for a T3 with EPB is different and has a unique scrub in process for the parking brake shoes which is critical to the installation when the rear discs are changed. They can be done DIY if you are experienced but probably best left to the dealer with the correct equipment. I’ve added the relevant threads below in post #5

Thank you for your reply
Actually I don't want to touch my parking brake, I had to replace both motors operating the EPB last year at VW dealer for over 1000$ :(
Just the brake pads and discs.

The Generation 1 (T1 and T2) cars do not have an electric parking brake like the later Generation 2 (T3 and T4) cars.

DIYers have messed up their EPB so the OP is right to be asking the question.

If you do have to replace the EPB brake shoes there is a grinding in and air gap process that needs to be followed using VCDS or similar OBDII code reader.

Hopefully someone can give the OP the correct advice.

Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA and the facelift T2 is model 7L6

Having read both DIY I can say that unless I unplug the EPB motor, there shouldn't any problem or calibration needed when replacing the rear dics.

Kindly correct me if I'm wrong.

Loz’s thread indicates that but I’d be prepared for the possibility that you might not get it right if you don’t have access to the correct VCDS software and follow the correct procedure to reset the air gap - you might have to visit a dealer if it doesn’t work out :huh:

Let us know how you get on and please consider doing a DIY thread with images if you do this yourself ;)
