    Couldn't find the exact answer so I'll post a simple question: 2004 Jetta GLS, changing out the rotors and the pads on the rear. The pistons are out pretty darn far. I'll need to crank those back in, pop the lid on the master or not while cranking those back? I've seen some guys say pop the lid...

  7. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Alright, I posted once about the size for the brakes on the GLI's. I'm sure a few of us have looked at many rotors, pads or just full brake kits. I've done a bit of research to the point that I honestly don't know what to get. Drilled, slotted, drilled and slotted or just plain rotors. I've been...
  8. VW Jetta MKV 2005.5–2010
    Hey all: I have to change my rear pads and rotors. Got to the 50K mark and now they are low. I figure since (a) I am having to make the change anyway, and (b) my car is now off lease and a "purchase", I want to look at putting an aftermarket part on there. Can anyone offer suggestions on a...

    Have a 05 GLI MKIV. I few months back I bought a whole brake kit meaning rotors and pads for front and back. I already had my car up and wheels off ready to take the old sets apart. Only to find that my new rotors and pads where smaller than the ones already installed. So my question is does...

    I need some help. My 98 jetta has seized brakes (I think) because you can pull the parking brake lever and it will do about 6 clicks without offering any resistance, plus the car will continue to roll on the incline of my driveway (which isn't that inclined!!). Finally, I did some inspection...

    Hi guys, Gotta 1991 VW diesel MKII that I'm planning on doing a complete overhaul on the rear drum brake system. The previous owner had snipped the back lines and the drum and shoes are completely rusted out, so all new parts will be needed. My question to you: after researching some parts...

    I recently bought a 2008 MkV w/ the 2.5l 5-cyl. engine. It was inspected at a dealer before purchase, so everything is in working order, I was wondering how people have accessed the brake fluid reservoir cap. I was trying to get at it earlier today, and couldn't because it seems to be hidden...
