I have to change the rear pads on my EL. Does the rear caliper have to come off or does it just swing up? Which bolts do I have to take off the 2 closer to the axle or the outer ones and finally how does the piston go back in on these.

Thanks.

The two bolts you remove are the ones that go through the slides.

The piston should just push back with a 'G' clamp.

The EL has a Drum-in-Disc type handbrake so the handbrake has nothing to do with the calipers.

You will need to release the handbrake, if you intend getting the rotors machined.

Hey guys I need to change the pads on my EL but after trying to do it on my XF a few years back I gave up doing my own work.

Anyway I remember needing a "special" tool to do the XF, do I need anything like this for the EL? Or will normal tools suffice.

Any advice on how to change the pads and how easy it is would be appreciated.

The XF I believe had the handbrake inside the caliper, the same as EA. That would explain why you had some trouble with it. The EL is very differant, with the handbrake inside the drum, changing the pads for the caliper is very easy: Remove caliper, push piston back, replace pads.

emry paper Nope no need if they are scored/scratched they will need machining.


the X series and ea/b/d's rears had a srew type piston were a tool was need to litrally wind the piston back inot the caliper a f**k pain in the a**

good to hear u change the pads today by yourself.
a good idea for next time is to lube up the slides.
makes the pad wear more even/consistent
