You can remove the motor (2 torxe bolts) and wind the caliper back by hand if you want.

Your welcome and make sure you use grease on the motor when you reassemble to keep the water out.

Get yourself a OBDeleven. The basic model does E-Brake service. Adaptor cost £39 direct from their website inc postage.
The Pro software cost extra £21 if you plan to do coding like battery registeration and more.

You need something longterm ownership for scanning error codes
