BMW X3 Service & Repair Manual / Brakes / Rear brakes / Removing and installing or replacing brake pads on both rear disc brakes (trw floating caliper)

Special tools required:

  • 34 1 280
  • 2 320 871
  • 2 320 299

IMPORTANT:

  • Brake pad wear sensor: after removal it must be replaced (brake pad wear sensor loses its retention capability in the break pad).
  • Retaining pins and expanding spring: for vehicles older than 48 months it is recommended to replace the retaining spring!

So as not to damage the surface coating, if possible do not mechanically clean the guide surfaces for the brake pads on the brake caliper mounting bracket. Instead, clean with brake cleaner BMW part no. 83 19 2 154 780 and apply a thin coating of brake pad paste BMW part no. 83 19 2 158 851 (3 g) or 83 19 2 158 852 (100 g). Spread brake pad paste onto the marked surfaces using a brush! Observe REGULATION ON APPLYING BRAKE PAD PASTE TO BRAKE PADS AND BRAKE ANCHOR PLATES!

WARNING: During repair work on the rear brake it must be ensured that the push button for the electrical parking brake cannot be activated.

Necessary preliminary tasks:

  • REMOVE WHEELS .
  • Remove rear brake pad wear sensor.

When the repair work is complete, please pay attention to the following:

Clean brake pads.

Do not apply grease to brake lining backplate.

Brakes

Check minimum brake disc thickness:

  • Position special tool 34 1 280 at three measuring points in area (1) and measure.
  • Compare measuring result and lowest value with SETPOINT VALUE .

Brakes

IMPORTANT: New brake pads may only be fitted if the brake disc thickness is greater than the MINIMUM BRAKE DISC THICKNESS (MIN TH).

Place special tool 2 320 871 , 2 320 299 on brake piston.

Use reversible ratchet (1) to turn back brake piston up to limit position.

IMPORTANT: When pressing piston back, note brake fluid level in expansion tank.

Overflowing brake fluid will damage the paintwork.
