    Hello to everyone.. I have a critical question about 20VT pistons.. I've notice that under the piston that there you can see the code, at the end there is a cross "+" in some pistons, 2 crosses "++" in pistons from other (20VT) cars and 3 crosses "+++" to others.. For example, Ibiza Cupra have...

    Last night I was changing the rotors and pads on my front brakes. When I was pushing back the piston some brake fluid came out in the piston cavity. I cleaned it out and continued. The brakes work well now and no more leaking so far detected. Has the piston O-ring damaged during push back or...

    I attempted today to replace the rear rotor and pads. Everything was going well until I started to push back the piston with a proper tool. I turned it as much as possible but it never fitted the new pads no matter how hard I tried. The brake fluid reservoir cap is open. I even opened the...

    Hi Guys, I have one more question to ask; I'm trying to change my VW B6 rear calipers, brake discs and pads. The electronic parking piston bit on the caliper is giving me some problems. I bought a brand new caliper and it looks the piston is all the way in from the looks of it however when I...

    Replacing one brake line on the drivers rear and pushed the piston back but the rubber boot binded and came out on one side. Now the boot is fully off on the caliper but still attached to the piston. Is there any way to push it back in place. I tried a small screw driver with no luck. Any...

    Background: Replaced Timing Belt et. al. in September 2012. Runs fine, etc. One day, in October 2013, my wife drives a couple of miles, puts it in the driveway like normal. Nothing up to this point indicates any problems. I go to start it later that night, the car starts, chugs, coughs, and...

    Edit: Sold! This is a set of four brand new OEM Audi/VW piston connecting rods from an 058 block AEB engine. I bought a new (not rebuilt) Audi/VW crate engine (AEB). These rods came out because I upgraded to stronger after-market rods (high performance engine build). These are brand spanking...

    Removed my oil pan and found a piece of the piston oil jet in it. i'd love to know how to replace one if i have head removed, but don't feel like removing the block or the crankshaft. I can't really get to it because of the crankshaft.

    The caliper pistons on my 2006 2.0T have 3 slots and the retraction kit I got from Auto Zone doesn't have an adapter that fits. I haven't found any mention of this anywhere which has added to my frustration since finding out these pistons have to be turned and pushed at the same time. I did try...
