What caused the parking brake to activate? When you use the vag-com to retract the parking brakes, nothing should be able to override it.
I think the parking brake goes on automatically after about 5 minutes of the car being stopped. The car does not ave Vag co. Just the electrnic button in the middle.
I would get someone to put the piston back in. However the I am in small town in Australia where not pmany people drive Europeans and hence the brake guys would not touch it.
Is there anyway I can put the piston back in? The rubber seal looks good.
