hmmm, funny you mention the sensor, cause I was told by JLR that their was one for each caliper, in any case I suppose I will do them myself! haha if it is that easy and no special computers needed to reset anything. did you have to replace the sensors? I'm just doing a regular pad and rotor change on my vehicle as it is due, not so much for enhanced performance.
I was old similar now I have a spare front and back sensor in the boot...grrrr

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.
I had issues getting my car into service mode without using a scanner. I could get the brakes to retract, but when I switched off the ignition or opened the door they would go back again. Bought an Autel AP200 which works well with a smartphone. Best to disconnect the battery or the plug on the brakes when in service mode to make sure they don’t move again!!!

I have attached the directions for the service mode for the rear brakes. No need to have car in neutral just start the procedure with the ignition turned on and follow the steps. The directions mention an Audible Noise,, it is not a beep but just the sound of the brakes activating.
Remember to deactivate

For emergencies print up a copy to keep in your car.

Never know when you may need them

Has anyone replaced their rear brakes? My brake warning came on yesterday and I was looking for info. I can find info on the earlier Evoque's but not the Disco Sport (the newer Evoque uses the same rear brakes).

I am going to replace the rotors and pads. I am not going with ceramic pads this time. I feel that the ceramic pads are not doing a good enough job of scrubbing off the rust that a semi-metalic pad could do. The rust build-up on the old rotors is why I think that I am replacing the pads at 19k miles.

I did brakes on my RRS and Defender, so I an somewhat used to Land Rover brakes, but I could use some tips with the EPB.

Thanks in advance.
I changed my rear discs and pads... key is...jack up veh...chock and start engine and put in neutral. Take off handbrake manually. Remove electric connector to parking brake....switch off engine. Remove parking brake housing and wind back the brake spline. Now remove pads, callipers change the discs refit callipers insert pads and sensor ...wind in spline and refit parking brake housing and reconnect connector. Repeat for other side

If you have a scanner try resetting the parking brake by putting into service mode and then back again. A good scanner may have fault finding options. Otherwise it will be a case of removing the wheels and checking everything is ok including electrical connections. If that fails then you may need professional help, it’s possible that one or both of the actuators has a fault or is stuck.

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?
I followed the procedure in the attached to defeat the parking brake.... took 45 mins to change rear pads, bought genuine LR pads for £90, took me 50 mins including cleaning up calliper's etc... LR quoted my just under £500

Can anyone confirm if this procedure works for the EPB on the 2015 Disco Sport? I'm going to replace my wife's rear rotors and pads this weekend and haven't had a chance to try these instructions.

It will take you 30 seconds to go to the car and give it a try. You will hear the brake moving
