RS4 Brake Pad Change absolutcq20v 2008



Just tap the two pins toward the inside of the caliper with a suitable drift and mallet...







At this point, I reset the pistons with a pair of channel lock pliers and a shop rag to protect the paint finish...just drab the edge of the pad backing plate and apply steady pressure until they're all the way in...and watch for fluid overflowing from the reservoir.

Unplug the wear sender harness and remove it from the bracket by rotating 90 degrees and slip it out...



The pins, H-clips, and old pads removed...



8-pistons...excellent...



Install is the reverse of removal, don't forget to reset the pistons by pumping the brake pedal a few times before pulling off the lift and out of the garage. :P
