    Hi Eric – you have inspired me to tackle many jobs on my cars.

    I have a question on rear brake servicing with electronic parking brakes.

    I have 2 vehicles with epb (VW golf and Jaguar XF) and was wondering if this has to be a shop job to rewind the parking brake or if there is a workaround for the home mechanic without using an expensive tool to put the epb in maintenance mode?

    I’ve not seen a video from you on this but would appreciate your advice.

    There are some videos on YouTube that suggest unplugging the electrical connection at the brake and connect 12v positive and negative to the terminals to rewind and after the job is done swap wires around to wind it back?
