L405 Rear brake pad replacement 2014 model

Hi
I have had the mad idea to replace the rear brake pads and sensor on my 2014 model.
I have found out how to switch the electronic handbrake into service mode.
I know how to remove the two retaining bolts to remove the calliper.
Where I am struggling is how to compress the piston. It's not as simple as compressing the piston but I am lead to believe, you need to compress and rotate the piston - Is this correct and is it clockwise or anti-clockwise. Rolling Eyes

Can anybody help - without saying take it to a mechanic...... Shocked

Thanks

Managed
Having watched various videos on YouTube and doing what I thought.....
After placing the hand brake in maintenance mode I just needed to push the piston and did not need to twist either clockwise or anti clockwise. I did buy a windback tool and found this very helpful.

I hope this information helps with any other mad DIYers when replacing the rear brakes.

Thanks

Just out of interest - I also replace the front disc and pads and again the windback tool was useful. (Double piston on front - placed one old brake pad in the caliper and used that as a bridge to both pistons. It was tight then loose and then tight again.

You say you bought a wind back tool, I believe these do twist in the plunger as it goes back, not just push them back?

Maybe wrong.

Had this recently on my 14my, the piston also has 3 pins for the wind back toll to lock into when pushing it back - fairly rare apparently. Laser do a tool with 3 adapters and adjustable pins which l have...... now !! Model 6329. Other than that all quite straight forward.

Hi
I have changed the front disc and pads and also the rear pad on my 2014 big boy. Thumbs Up
Yes the piston has a three pin connection which I bought an adapter from Machine Mart.
I think even though I had bought the tool it only needs a very good compress, the turning action was not needed.
Remember to set the car in maintenance mode for the rear brakes, it took me a while to find the way to do this.

Hope this helps Very Happy
