    So you better be careful here. I recommend the following.

    Nope;

    no wear sensor on the evoque
    the piston retractor tool needs to have three pins to engage the piston
    The calipers look very different

    I'd say that its too different for me to feel confident enough to follow those instructions

    YMMV

    I am planning to replace my brakes soon. I worked on my brakes earlier on my LR3 and I didn't have any problem when replacing them. However I didn't mess with the parking brake. Front brake on Evoque looks pretty simple like on every car. My concern is the rear brake, if I put parking brake in service mode (picture). Do I need any special tools to retract the brake cylinder or can I just squeeze it in. When I looked at the rear brake last time, it has electric wire connected to the parking brake. If we disconnect the cable would the parking brake be disabled and will I need to calibrate anything?Or should I just take the car to the shop and let them replace just the rear brakes.

    You'll need a tool with 3 pins to turn and retract the piston, or you could do it with channel-loc pliers, but may damage the dust cover.
    You will need to calibrate the parking brake but that is easy just depress the brake pedal and pull and hold the parking brake switch on the dash.
    When I unhooked the electric cable I had to remove the parking brake actuator and back off the parking brake mechanism with a torn head driver. I did not have the instructions in your picture.

    You can do this, it just takes a bit more thinking than the last brakes you changed.

    Dogscout - Have you changed the brakes on the Evoque? I ordered a 3-pin retract die from the UK this morning since they were not available in Michigan or anywhere in the United States.

    My Land Rover dealer just called me and said that the only way to change the rear brakes is electronically. They use their computer to back out the rear piston. It seems hard to believe this is the only option.

    UPDATE 11/3/14 - The rear brake piston is not threaded so you do nto need a 3-pin tool. Use a caliper piston tool (you can rent from the auto parts store) that uses the front of the caliper to compress.

    I changed the rears on mine and had a piston come out. It was not hard to put back together and bleed, but it was a real hassle to have too. the electronic thing is just to back off the parking brake actuator with the computer. Following the deactivation instructions in the picture above should do the same thing they are doing with the computer "electronically" Once backed off I would disconnect/unplug the wiring connection JUST TO MAKE SURE.

    Where do we find this 3 prong tool? Is there a part number?
