Check for leaking fluid first.
If you find none the rear shoes may be waaay out of adjustment. Adjust them first (inspect lining for wear) and see if your issue goes away... especially if you see no fluid leaks anywhere.

This is caused by a fluid leak in the braking system, either the master brake cylinder, brake lines/hoses, or wheel cylinders/calipers. Inspect or have a professional inspect it for you and replace as needed. brakes are nothing to be stingey about. Hope this helps.

Replacing brakes on 99 VW Passat. Please advise how to push in the brake piston so it will fit back on the rotor & brakes


The fronts compress with a C clamp. The rears have to be turned in with a caliper retraction tool. In both cases, be sure to remove the brake reservoir cap before resetting the calipers, and put it back on before touching the brake pedal. Pump the brakes to get pressure before taking your first drive.

Replace fuel tank seals VW T25 vanagon


Dropping the fuel tank is rather involved. Beyond this sort of Q&A format.

I suggest you get a Bently Workshop Manual and a seal kit from gowesty.com or similar.

Also plan on replacing fuel hoses and a new filter would be a good idea.

One word of caution. The plastic overflow tanks in each wheel well have nipples for the fuel lines that become quite fragile so BE CAREFUL! The tanks are not available new.
