We manufacture a Brake Tool which greatly eases the process of removing the retaining pin, by compressing the spring clip for you. The Tool turns a very unpleasant task into a few-second operation, and it leaves the spring compressed so you have both hands free to get the pin out. $49.95

And we offer a Brake Pad Separator to compress the pistons for easy removal/insertion of the pads.

Check them out at http://Traqjunk.com

What does it mean to "lube Hub" (meantioned in the 60k service as well). What type of lub and are you lubing the hub of the rotor, were it would meet the wheel?

as well just replaced all four pads, pretty easy. Only question CEL still on for "brake pads". I replaced all the sensors, hoped that was the cure the CEL. Do I need to have the message cleared w/ a code reader or something? Thanks!

I just finished up all 4 corners for pads and rotors on my '06 S and thanks to the write up, it was a very simple process. The biggest "surpise" was the fact that it took so long based on the fact that anything that could be siezed up and/or stuck was siezed up and stuck

I only have 38k on the S and was not expecting that removing a caplier pin would take 10 minutes of constant hammering or that I would have to burn an entire can of PB blaster to remove the rotors once the little screws were removed. It was so bad that even the cotter pins on the rear caliper pins were fused into the hole and barely could be pulled out.....

Once I realized that this would not be a 90 minute job, I just took my time and made an afternoon of it. I also cleaned up the calipers to remove all the baked on brake dust (more of a moral victory that anything else as I needed to do something with my time as the PB Blaster worked it's magic). I am glad that I followed the advice here and purchased the "new" hardware even though it may not be necessary, otherwise the S would still be up on jackstands as my caliper bolts and clips would be still be soaking in brake cleaner.

Cool tools! I've not needed to remove the brake pads on the Cayenne yet but I've been looking for a pad spreader for a while. Tired of using large screwdrivers.

This is the exact problem which the Traqjunk Brake Tool is designed to handle.

Look at the quotes from our happy users. Only $49.95

Default Worshop Light Question

Thanks for the directions. When I replaced the brake pads on my Boxster the Pads Warning light went out automatically.

On my Cayenne the Brake Pads Workshop light still comes on. Any Ideas how to reset it?

Note: I did not replace the sensors since I did not need to on the Boxster. I assume this is my problem.

Am I wrong?

yes, you should have replaced the sensors, they alone cause the light to come on so the have to be replaced

Mudman...

I replace the sensors with new ones. The "Brake Pad Workshop" warning is still on.

Is there a way to reset this? I disconnected the negative battery cable but no joy.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure the sensors are seated in the caliper all the way. You shouldn't need to reset the CEL.

Mudman and gang...

You are all correct. I had only replaced the front brakes and sensors since the car only has 69000 miles.

It was a rear sensor.

Thanks again for the help.
