|Activate and deactivate maintenance mode (for vehicles with electromechanical parking brake)
Important safety note
Vehicles equipped with an electromechanical parking brake can be set to maintenance mode as follows.
Before the brake pads on the rear axle brake callipers can be replaced, the electric actuator motors must be retracted.
As soon as the electric motors move back audibly, the switch and the accelerator pedal can be released. If the maintenance mode has been activated correctly, the indicator lamp (1) for the electromechanical parking brake flashes on the instrument cluster.
Afterwards, the brake pistons can be pushed back for the brake pad change using a suitable tool.
Before deactivating it after the brake repair, depress the brake pedal a few times so that the brake pistons and brake pads are brought into the operating position.
As soon as the electric motors audibly extend, the switch and the accelerator pedal can be released. If the maintenance mode has been deactivated correctly, the indicator lamp for the electromechanical parking brake on the instrument cluster will go off.
The procedure is identical for vehicles with all-wheel drive. Repair and maintenance work on the brake system should only be carried out by a trained specialist in the automotive trade! Please always observe the maintenance and repair notes provided by the vehicle manufacturer in this context.
