Will not require a special tool for the pins/caliper bolts...likely a metric socket., However, you will need a special tool to adjust the caliper back in to get the new pads on the rotor.

What tool do I need to remove the caliper guide pin bolt on a 2004 town and country?


I just finished doing the rears on my 2005 T&C. The caliper pins need to be removed with a 7mm allen wrench. I used an allen socket for a 3/8" ratchet, which was much easier than using my wrenches. These pins are threaded and cannot be "tapped" out as said by someone else.

When you replace them, make sure you have some high temp grease to put on them and check the pin rubber boots to make sure that they are not cracked or damaged. Good luck!.

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s


For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb
