2003 s430 rear brake rotor replacement

Hello everyone,

I'm planning to replace the front and rear brake rotors and pads this weekend. I have about 33K miles and the front pads and all rotors are pretty worn out. The rotors are all chewed up. Looking at the front pads and rotors, I don't think I'll have any problems with the work. They look pretty standard fixed caliper type similar to my 911. The rear seem rotors however I'm a bit concerned. I know in my wife's Volvo S60, and other cars for that matter, the e-brakes will need to be released to allow the rotors to be pulled out. The e-brake pads in some cars can be released by turning a star wheel that can be accessed through a slit opening behind the rotor/ In the S60 though, releasing the e-brake pads is done from inside the car under the center console next to the e-brake lever.

The question is; how is the S430 setup to release the e-brake pads? Any insights anyone? TIA.

As long as you DO NOT have SBC brakes,you don't have to do anything to the parking brake.
There should be 3 or 4 " Click " of free play anyway.
If, by chance you do have SBC brakes, you may want to consider having the rears done by somebody knowledgable & equipped to do so.

Thanks, Manny.

No SBC. I should be set as soon as I get all the parts.
