    So we know Brembo 17z's can be adapted to the front of a b5.5, but will they work on the rear? I'm not taking about front 17z fitting on the back. I'm talking about the rear calipers (whatever model they are) off a Touareg fitting on the rear of a b5.5. The only donor Touareg in my area has the...

    hey guys, ive been doing quite a bit of researching around for some solid information on the Porsche cayenne BB upgrade. I have a 2002 Passat GLX wagon 4mo. recently I have come across a guy selling cayenne calipers, rotors, and lines for a steal, but ive been chatting with him in regards...

    I've had problems with my emergency brake levers seizing up and not allowing the brake to fully engage. I finally decided to do something about it so I bought a set of Cardone rebuilt brake calipers from Rock Auto. The first thing I noticed is that the bleeder screws were different sizes from...

    Hello All, I have a 2002 Passat 1.8t with 145k miles. I just had the car in the shop where they replaced the timing belt tensioner gasket, oil pan, oil pickup tube and screen. The ABS light is on and comes on as soon as the car is started, which I and the mechanic attribute to a bad module as...

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, but it seems like I cannot compress the front brake calipers enough to get them over the new brakepads and rotors. I bought the rotors and brakepads as a kit and they are definitely the right ones. I noticed some rusting around the end of the brake piston...

    Gentlemen- Normally I would browse Zine or Vortex, but this is Passat specific. I've heard of the nightmares we encounter getting air to leave rear lines. I'll start by saying, this an 03 AWM 1.8t Auto Trans. Last weekend a friend and I were going to mount a tire to a reman rim, and I had...

    Can someone post a how-to guide for replacing the front brake calipers on a 2000 GLX (AWD)? I've found some videos on replacing calipers, but nothing specific for a VW (or Audi).

    I've got a nice set-up on my wagon, with Detroit GTI rims. Stock height still but want to get a more sporty look from my brakes. Initially I was thinking Porsche calipers but almost fainted when looking at the price tag. I'm new to the forum and to the car scene, any advice/leads would be...

    Full and complete BBK for your B5/5.5. Less than 2,500 on pads and rotors, though over half of those were on TOTD Rally 2013. ;-) They will be that shiny and new looking. I am going to touch up and polish them before shipping. Everything you need to bolt on and stop like you drove...

    As I got a frozen rear caliper on my C4 A6, I recently purchased two remanned units - better to replace them at the same time. I was looking at Centric, as I liked what I've read on their website: after dismemberment each caliper core is heated to 500° to burn any residual oils or grease; then...

    I'm writing this in hopes it eliminates confusion for anyone else that may need rebuilt calipers for the B5 series Passat that I went through last weekend. Got to work Friday and (FL) brake was smoking, with almost 170K on the 04 4Motion wagon this caliper was sticking, when I did pads and...

    finally found a website that carries porsche brake calipers and the brackets so they fit on the car. the website wanted 435 ea for the calipers and a little under 180 for the bracket. however, with my new wheels and rotors being put on in the spring time, i feel like it would be weird to see all...

    My brother totaled his 2000 B5 Passat over the summer and these parts have just been siting in the garage ever since. The rest of the car has been sent off to scrap since my father has gotten sick of looking at it. I figured I would try to sell this stuff instead of letting it go in the trash...

    So just picked up some porsche boxster calipers at a local salvage yard and was disappointed to see the original paint was beginning to crack and peel. But they were cheap so I picked them up anyways and plan to paint them. I have access to a sand/glass bead blast cabinet and was wondering if...

    Just did my rear calipers (1999 V6). Wanted to say that I had trouble with something the Bentley refers to as a "clip" for the e-brake, but provides no further explanation on. Neither the Haynes nor the Bentley explain how to disconnect the e-brake line - I assume it's self-explanatory to most...

    I have a set of front calipers and rotors, the rotors are nice and smooth and the calipers worked perfect when they were pulled off. They come with meaty newer pads, ill post up a better pic in the morning when I have better light but you get the idea. I'm thinking 125 plus shipping but throw an...
