Question about 2010 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi
Posted by Anonymous on
Tap the wheel centre sharply with a hammer whilst having someone try drive forward to shock them free, otherwise take the wheel off and gently tap the caliper body itself. Check the handbrake mechanism is releasing properly and that the arms the cable attaches to on the calipers releases fully.

Your pads NORMALLY will ride on the disks, they will NOT normally make any rubbing sound.
I doubt your calipers are stuck unless you drove into the seawater at Daytona or something similiar. To test, chock rear wheels, jack up front of car, spin L and then R wheels by hand, if they spin whthout much effort, your front caliper pistons are probably fine. Flip car around and repeat for other end;~)
You may find one of the rear wheels has a grinding feeling and some play if you grab it top and bottom and try to wiggle perpendicular to the line of travel. If this is the case you need a wheel bearing, could be on the front bearing, but my jetta experience says rear bearing (twice).
DO NOT BUY CALIPERS unless you know they are bad, they shouldn't be bad and they are expensive.
Good luck and post us back

G clapm and water pump pliers needed,slight compression on G clamp which is on back /piston slight pressure applied then turn the piston with the waterpump pliers ,better with two people one holding it and keeping pressure on G clamp whilst the other turns piston.Yes i know their is a special tool for this and every motor has its own style of tool but mine does all .

go to a tool store and ask for an easy-out, this is a specialty tool placed on a drill to grip stripped screws and broken bolts

Only way is to use diagnistic equipment.Go to HAND BRAKE . There is option to release the pistons.When you change the brake pads you have to use option - engage .
