Hi! Anybody have instructions how to set the EPB to service mode? I tried one from the evoque but couldn’t make it to work (where it’ll show that it’s in service mode). But I found an instruction how to disable the automatic EPB, where it says:

Turn engine on. Switch knob/gear in “N” neutral. Turn off engine.

Press start without/brake pedal just to turn ignition on. Then press/hold brake pedal and press down EPB to release parking brake. Release brake pedal.

Next, press/hold down EPB.
Then press start/stop while continuing to hold EPB for 5 secs.
Release EPB.

That procedure seems to work to release it from Park brake but is it sufficient for service?

Update: Getting the electronic sequence to get EPB to maintenance mode just doesn’t work mine for some reason. But I was still able to change the rear brake pads following method used by Audi/VW with EPB shown all over YouTube. Basically follow the method I used above to disable automatic EPB to prevent activation while working on it. Then, unbolted the EPB from the caliper. Manually rewind the EPB, compress the piston back with a caliper tool. Don’t use c-clamp. Change pads. Very easy, works well. Zero error codes.

Found this page looking for info on replacing my brakes - perhaps someone who has done it before can help. I have replaced brakes on cars many times so no concerns. The question I had is around the torque values for various bolts. One document I found lists the torque value for the bolts that attach the brake caliper mounting plate to be 200 Nm. AND it says you have to replace these bolts every time you do a brake job. Does this sound right? Did anyone else who has done a brake job replace these?

Thanks.

Hi. I canít believe rake pads on 18k mileage disco should be so pitted. It only does long journeys with little brake use. All my other makes of cars have lasted between 35k and 60 k before replacement. Are jlr brake pads fit for purpose

Nice to see you have posted same thing 3 times.. Are you sure the Brake "Pads" are pitted??? Very hard to see the pads unless off the car.

Hi, I just changed today my rear brake pads, on nearly 30.000 km.
The pad wear sensors are on the rear right and front left pads.
Even if I changed the pads, the message on the dash for pads wear is still present. Do I have to change the sensor as well?

Typically the sensor work once only after they contact the disc.Once the sensor is changed the message will go away.


Sorry a little more work for you.

Strange caliper pin bushings

My 2017 Disco Sport has a different boot/bushing for one front caliper slide pin than it does the other. Anyone else have this? None of the replacement boots I can find would work with mine as it appears the boot that was in there would have had to have been installed when the bushing was as it was formed around the metal. I tore the old one out while doing the typical pad/rotor job but to my dismay I won't have a boot to put back on the pin. The bushing (that appears welded inside the pin slide hole) holds the pin pretty **** tight but I'm concerned about it seizing without the boot to protect the lubricant.

Please help!
