    What the main dealer says sounds correct. I guess that your first garage retracted the electronic handbrake which means that the brake shoes needed to be ground in. When the grounding in was attempted, the clearance between the shoes and disc was probably greater than specification, so its needed new shoes to reduce the gap. I think you just need to let the dealer get on with it. Expensive though.

    When I did the job, I managed to get the discs off without retracting the handbrake shoes, so no grinding in process was required.

    This is a common and really painful problem, I have to deal with it on a regular basis for other garages. I have not been able to get VCDS to complete the process and initially I used a friends Delphi diagnostic system which worked but now I use the dealer system ODIS. The shoes don't need replacing if they not worn or corroded, the air gaps have to be set manually and then the shoes bedded in using the diagnostic system.
