So i just upgraded my 1.9tdi brakes to a 2.8 v6 brake kit. My problem is that i can't find the sizes for the rear bads. Can't find 256mm brake pads from the same manufacturer as in the 312mm fron ones. Is annoying that also it doesn;t say the dimensions like these are 256 pads and they just have...
I have a 2001 Passat that has a bad master cylinder and maybe also a bad brake booster. I would like to replace the master cylinder with one from a totaled 2003 A4 Quattro in my driveway. From what I can tell, the parts are not the same, but I was wondering if anyone knew if they would fit, and...
I recently noticed an intermittent noise on my 2001 1.8 wagon. It sounded like metal scraping on metal, like the brake shield on the rotor, it did not change when I pressed the brakes. I took off the wheel and I noticed green gunk everywhere. I saw that my cv boot was torn, so I took out the...
I will install all new rotors and brake pads on my 1.8T brand Are and also put new oil. After removing a old oil and putting a new after vent of all calipers should i need to vent/bleed also a slave cylinder on clutch or dont need, but is recomended??

Issue: Info center will only display "STOP, Brake Fault, Service Manual", red Brake Light constantly flashing, and the dreaded 3 Beeps when starting vehicle. SEL also on, but related to an issue with the CAT.
Ultimate Question: how do I get the...
So this is the second Passat I’ve had with this problem. 2003 GLX 4 Motion.
I changed pads and rotors last month. Was pretty careful, used the pink brake quiet stuff.
The problem is when I brake everything works fine up until the last second of completing my stop. At the last moment there is...
Ever since we bought it (around 160k miles, currently 200k), our 2002 V6 4motion has been having unbalanced wheel-like vibrations around 65 mph and faster. In the meantime, we have replaced the tires, wheels, and rotors/pads. The vibrations occur irrespective of braking and are more noticable in...
Hello all,My name is Brett and just joined this site.Has anybody had a locked up brakes problem that happens gradually as brakes warm up?I have replaced MC and booster and all air bled from system.Could overfilling resevoir cause this?Thanks
I searched threads but didn't see one like my issue. I may have missed it. Here's my issue... I have a 2004 Passat wagon 4motion. I replaced the front brake pads and rotors like I've done on many of my other cars before, however this time, the brakes were locked once I started the...
I have a 2010 Komfort Wagon that is due for brake service. I have tools for the EPB. My question is regarding removal of the caliper mount from the axle. At first I thought it was a TORX, but I realize that it has too many points. What is this type and size of socket?
Thank you in advance.

Brake pad light came on, check brake pads in the front. They needed replacing, replaced them, good job brake pad light.
Grinding noise starts in the back of the car. Both rotors in crappy shape and right side down to steel on inner pad. Change out...
So i have to change my brakes and figured since I've got a 99 and I'm pretty sure the pads haven't been changed since 99 lol, I figured I'd do a pretty big overhaul. I want to change as much as I can but I can't seem to find a list of stuff that I need. So far I have:
- brake pads
I have been experiencing a MIL for "Check Brake Pads." I have also noticed that when I am coming to a stop I get a grinding feeling/sound. I believe this issue is on the front brakes. Upon inspection of my brake fluid yesterday I noticed that my brake fluid reservoir has a defect in the upper...

I just had axles replaced on my passat from non-dealer. (They had gotten pretty bad, cv boots were torn and were clacking whenever I turned the car).
When I picked up the car, I noticed that whenever I have almost reached a complete stop, the brakes give a little rumble/grumble sound, and I...
Hello to all,
these are the specs of my passat
Manufacturer: Volkswagen AG
Manufacturer Address:Berliner Ring 2 Wolfsburg/Hannover
Number of Seats:5

Got a very neglected Passat, rusting outside with no driving for three or more years...
I knew sooner or later I will need to do brakes, because rotors looked overgrown with rust and I had to un-stuck after finally starting the car first time.
I was hoping the pads will make rotors more shinny...
This is a new problem (at least to me). My kid's 01 B5 GLX 4motion wagon makes a squeaking noise when the brakes get warmed up.
Driving short distances on relatively flat ground I never hear it. But if I take the car into town (3000' drop in elevation over 10 miles), by the bottom of the...
