Greetings: Can anyone provide a brief walkthrough on Q5 rear brake pad replacement, i.E, is a vag com or vcds absolutely necessary to open the electromagnetic parking brake (pistons in rear caliper); or can the parking brake just not be applied during the job, with the use of a piston depression tool, thank you!

Parking brake does not need to be applied. Your changing the pads. Rear calipers are spin in type.
