Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Jetta right rear wheel hot

'06 Jetta has problem with right rear wheel getting hot. Left rear gets a little bit warm. Both front wheels and rotors stay stone cold. Have replaced both rear calipers and that did not help. Then replaced worn out pads and rotors at 130,000 miles. Front brakes are still OK. The next thing recommended to to is replace master cylinder and booster pump. That seems way too general of a measure to take, as the rear brakes, right more than left, are the problem, and not the fronts at all.

SOURCE: brake pad replacement 1999 new jetta gls

These are not much different from most modern disc brake systems. Once the wheel is off, you will find the caliper assembly is held on with guide pins that screw into place. Little spring clips hold the pads to the caliper. If you do one side at a time you can reference the other to make sure you get it back together right. Be sure to unhook any speed and wear sensors before pulling the caliper off. Use a coat hanger or other wire to suspend the caliper. (not good to hang by the hose) Take the cap off the brake master and compress the brake pistons with a C clamp before you try to put the new pads in place. If the master overflows you will want some rags there to catch it. Brake fluid and paint don't get along very well. To do the job right, you need a dial caliper to check the thickness of the rotors. The minimum thickness is stamped into the hubs on most VWs. If there are scores or lines worn into the rotor they need to be removed and machined. If not, you may be able to remove the glaze from the rotors with some fine sandpaper and lots of elbow grease. ( I always take mine in for machining as it also ensures any warping is taken care of.) On vehicles with 4 wheel discs it is recomended to do all 4 at the same time, but NEVER replace in less than pairs. (front or rear) Another safety note, don't breath the black dust. It's carcinogenic.

SOURCE: sticking brakes

It seems the front brakes are jamming, thiscould be the caliper piston being corroded and since it wa sdriven to its max the piston have travelled way too out forthe dust rubber to be able to protect the dust or water getting through.
The best remedy would be to overhaul the front brake calipers, best would be to remove dismantle and examine if the pistons are ok with no burr or rusty around it.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Hi. I just replaced the front brakes and rotors,

You probably have air in the system. You will have to bleed them. Or it is possible that you bight have purchased defected calipers. Also are you sure that you put the rite pads in the rite place?

What are the torque settings for a 99 jetta rear wheel bearing?

Snug them up, then back them off about two increments where the cotter pin goes in. Wheel should spin freely. If not back nut off.Take a short test drive, a km or so. Feel the wheels in the center, warm is normal, but not hot. If hot back the nut off.

I show the 5th plug is bad on my 03 jetta. If im looking at the plugs on top which one is the 5th? from left to right or right to left?

With some minor exceptions, plugs on inline engines always count from the front to the rear of the engine. Your VW is front wheel drive so the front of the engine is on the left or passenger side.
no 1 plug would be on the left and the 5th plug would be on the right or drivers side.
Hope that helps.. :)

97 Jetta GLS - Horn honks when I turn the wheel to the left

sounds like there is something in the wrong place in the horn button. it makes contact when you turn left just as if you had pushed the horn button. i wonder does your airbag light ever come on, i mean not just in the startup sequence, that's normal. probably you need to take the horn button part of the steering wheel apart and get things back in the right place or maybe replace some parts, but because of the airbag being right there too it's not something i would recommend that you do yourself. accidentally setting off an airbag is not a good thing.

Get some graphite or lock oil and put it into the ignition.This should help alot,Also if you try to turn the steering wheel while turning the key it will releave the pressure on the wheel lock and this helps as well (when the wheel is locked, you should only be able to move it a little bit in one direction)
