  1. break pads & rotors

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I took my 2001.5 V6 GLS to the dealer today to get the front breaks inspected. They found the front rotors warpt, they changed the rotors along with the front pads. I am hoping that this will be covered by the factory warranty since the deformation on the rotors are premature (21k miles). The SA...

  4. Can I use my same stock rotors w/ new Mintex Red Box pads?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have 27K miles on my original brake pads and want to replace them with Mintex Red Box pads. Can I get by without replacing the rotors? Even if they're a little grooved, I've always gotten by with just having them turned before replacing pads. Is there any reason I can't do that with Red Box...
  5. Rear brake rotors - worth it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is it worth justifying the cost of upgrading the rear brake rotors with aftermarket ones.. ie. zimmerman rotors? I already have zimmerman's in the front with mintex pads on all four. I recall a dealer mentioning that the rear brakes only account for about 12-13% of the braking.
  6. New ATE Rotors and Pads - Clicking Brake or Caliper Noise ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently installed new rotors and pads on the front of my 01.5 and now when I hit the brakes I hear a click come from both sides! Not sure exactly what it is, I thought I would check with you guys before I get dirty again. The brakes work wonderfully, but the click is pretty loud on the...
  7. quick question when painting rotors???

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm painting my new rotor hubs and edges to prevent rust, while painting I got a liitle overspray on the rotor itself, will this overspray evantually be removed by the pads overtime. Just wanted to make sure this wont affect anything. Thanks

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I would like to replace my factory rotors with an aftermarket setup. I have a set of new mintex pads for all four corners waiting for install. What rotors do you guys suggest I go with?? Big brake upgrade is out of the question due to lack of $$$. Also can somebody post pics and instructions...

    Classified Archive
    These are slightly used and they were installed on a 1999 or 2000 . I bought them from a fellow member, but I decided on a completely different setup. I personally have never installed these on my Passat. I think they were used less than a few weeks! They are in the box and ready to go, I...
  13. front rotors are warped

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well the brake pedal and steering wheel are starting to pulsate. I just hit 30k on my 2002. Typically I would just get my rotors turned and start pricing rotors for the next time they get warped. So I called the dealer to see how much it would be to get the rotors turned. He said they don't...

  15. Brakes: Mintex Pads & ATE Rotors - Clarification

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, Looks like many on this site have had good experience with Mintex Redbox brake pads and ATE 'slotted' rotors. Could you help clarify the following questions ? 1. How well (or poorly) will the Mintex pads work with the standard Passat (1999 GLX v6) rotors ? 2. Have you noticed or...
  16. Need Help Identifying Rotors

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Saturday morning I discovered that what I thought were my recently purchased A8 rotors were something entirely different. The fellow Connecticut area B5r who sold them to me never got to the point of install. But I did and found out (very obviously) that the center hub opening was WAY too...
  17. Looking for slotted rotors (front and rear)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It's time to get the brakes done on my 2000 GLS. I would like to upgrade to slotted rotors and Mintex pads. So far the only place I've found that carries both front and rear slotted rotors is ECS Tuning. Does Brembo make slotted rotors for the front and rear? Anybody want to recommend a...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Can slotted rotors be turned? Also dose it matter in which direction they are installed?
