Diag tool

6 posts in this topic


Hi, i do most maintenance myself like replacing brake pads, but need a diagnostic tool to reset the fault light on the dash afterwards. Need the tool to be able to wind back the rear caliper pistons also for the F10 & F15 with the electronic handbrake. Any recommendations? Cheers, thanks

For diagnostics: Rheingold ISTA.

 

For the rear brakes with electronic handbrake, you can just remove the electronic actuator from the caliper, replace the pads and then reinstall the actuator.

 

You can reset a number of service indicators through the dashboard cluster too:

Search on YouTube for F10 rear brake pad replacement, there are plenty of videos to show you how. @Matthew Ashton is right, you remove the actuators from the rear of the calipers and change pads normally and push piston to retract as you would the front caliper. You then wind back the actuator using a torx T45 or T47 bit.

Meant to add you will need a new rear pad wear sensor to allow reset of rear brake pad warning message.
