Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
The adjustment cylinder wont move back so new pads can be installed. my step dad is trying to use a large c clamp one of the fittings is now leaking break fluid
I have a 06 tdi and I drive like crazy so a little experienced in this as jettas have a known issue with premature rear brake pad failure. The above user is right but not very helpful, I would recommend a bentley manual and a search of ebay. I found a multitool that will work on vw, buick, ford and many makes for turning the caliper piston back into cylinder and it was not expensive compared to the $500 the dealer wanted and I have done this 2-3 times already. If need to replace rotor you need a special multipoint tool (m14 socket) that is very hard to find. I bought one on internet from german company, look up Stahlwille M14.
