Just wondering if anybody has or knows where I can get an exploded view diagram of a rear brake calliper (2005 mk3 tdci 130)
Iv recently changed the rear calipers for recon ones, the nearside worked fine but the offside handbrake mechanism didnt work correctly. I then took this back and swapped it for another with the same problem (both times the hydraulics worked perfect) the piston only moved about 2 or 3 millimetres when the lever was operated. I'm just curious as to how the handbrake mechanism works. Iv tried the google but it hasn't turned up what I'm looking for

Thanks Martyn

Hi

The video on the attached link will give you a clue how these calipers work: http://www.myturbodi...ton-works-3962/

This is for a VW but ford units work in a similar war.
