Default Brake Job

Hey, tech, or anybody else. I am plannin on doing a brake job on on my 2000 T6 this weekend and was wondering just how troublesome the process is. I am plannin on replacing both rear rotors and then the brake pads as well, due to lotsa vibrating coming from a warped rotor. I have replaced brakes before on my own, but that was usually on older cars. Is it a pretty hairy process? anybody got an tips to get me started, or things I should watch out for? Appreciate any help!

Default RE: Brake Job

If you are just doing the rears it is pretty straight foward and easy.The outer rear pads are glued to the caliper.Actually like double side taped.Just remove the caliper then the screw for the rotor.Then try to slide the rotor off.Sometimes you will have to tap with a hammer to loosen it from the hub.Then just reinstall.

Note: If the brake pedal feels funny when you are done.It kind of fades slowly then take it out somewhere where no one is.Then slam on the brakes hard and activate the abs and it will purge the tiny bit of air that came from pushing the calipers back.

It mainly happens when doing front pads rarely doing rear pads.
