    Rear brake tool

    Just a couple of quick questions,

    need to do the rear brakes on my '07 sportback, I got told by someone that the rear callipers need a reverse thread wind back tool for one side and a normal tool for the other?

    Also does the handbrake use the rear pads as shoes or are there shoes in the centre drum? When I worked for BMW they started using that idea on the 5 and 7 series.....

    Otherwise its my SB wont pass her MOT

    Thanks guys

    I bought a windback tool from my local motorspares shop, both threads were the same on my 2005 sportback, can rember which way tho...I just bought the tool that stated it was suitable for audi, think the winback tool was around £15 quid and was made by Laser Tools.

    The handbrake uses the rear pads as the shoes there was no shoes in the centre drum!
