Happily changing my rear brake discs and pads when then found previous owner managed to ruin the thread for the calliper bolts on the rear wheel hub and used some kind of glue to keep the nut in!! . Had to end up replacing the rear wheel hub.


Now parking brake issues - it disengages (I can feel it as the car jolts forward when released) so mechanically its working but the **** dash light wont go off and bleeps constantly when driving


I know its not the foot pedal gas strut as that was replaced a year ago and its worked perfectly fine until now the wheel hub has been changed


From what I can see the 9PA 2004 Cayenne does NOT have electric parking brake so I'm guessing its just mechanical adjustment thats needed but my question is where and how? Do I need to adjust at the wheel hub using the screw driver on that cog behind the disc window? And If so what am I looking for to correct this?


OR is an adjustment needed at the parking brake handle? And if so what?


Thanks in advance all

1. Release the FPB pedal so that the wheels and brake discs can turn freely.

  • The wheels may still grind slightly even then! If this happens, loosen the rear brake cables by moving them to and fro gently.

2. Remove rear wheels.
3. Adjust brake shoes (on both wheels). To do this, unscrew the plugs -Arrow- and turn the brake disc with the opening towards the adjustment device position. Using a screwdriver, modify the adjustment device until the wheel can no longer be turned. Then unscrew 6 teeth (wheels must be free to turn).
4. Check the free play on the pedal module once again.
5. Mount rear wheels.
