  1. Rear New Rotors, right wheel is not spinning freely.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just installed two Zimmerman rotors on the rears. After I did the brake in procedure per the Zimmerman instructions, I noticed that the rear right rotor is extremely hot, while the left is normal. I adjusted the hand brake per Bentley. The parking brake wire is not tight at all. I don’t...

  5. You must replace rotors every brake pad change?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    My 2015 is already hitting 50k miles and needs some new pads. So I called two shops today and both of them told me they had to change the rotors out when the brake pads are changed. Something about not being able to turn them and something else about a wire. Both shops quoted me around 350.00...

  12. What Brake Pads & Rotors Should I Get?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm going to take a shot at replacing my pads & rotors. I don't know anything about this. I've read a bunch of threads, and see references to slotted, drilled, coated, etc. I looked on-line and see a range of options, i.e., EBC premium, EBC sport, EBC Ultimax (for one brand). I've got a...
  13. STOP! Brake Fault. After changing rear brake pads and rotors.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I changed out the rear pads and rotors today (2002 1.8T). After reassembly the brakes work great but got the brake fault. When I was pressing the caliper back in I opened the bleeder screw. My rationale was that I would introduce some newer brake fluid into the lines rather than shove the...

    I have barely drive this Passat in last 10 months (first heat core leak) and then not at all in last 5 months (water pump leak). Now I am almost done with water pump. The rotors have thick layer of rust over its surface. Should I ignore the rust and just start driving and hope the brake pad...

  19. Rotational brake noise after turning front rotors - new pads

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I had the front rotors turned on my wife's 2008 Passat Station Wagon and put on new pads. Ever since, when you apply the brakes, there's a rotational scraping noise coming from one or both of the front brakes. If you really get on the brakes, it pretty much goes away, but when you go into...
