Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
I am not sure about your rotors, but they usually come right off, maybe bolted, maybe just a clip. But the calipers, you have 4 bolts in the back, the two on the outside are the slide bolts for the pads to slide on, and the 2 on the inside hold the caliper itself on there. Pull the slide off first, then the caliper, hang the caliper by a wire so it doesn't pull on the brake line. pull out the brake pad holder,and dump the pads out, they have shims and squealers in there, make note of their position. Pull off the rotor, replace it, Like I said, not sure how yours goes, but,, put back on the caliper with the pads in there, put the slide bolts in and the caliper bolts, Tighten that baby up, you should be all set, some pistons on the calipers are self adj, as the break pads wear the turn out to take up the slack, so if the pads won't go over the rotor, try turning in the pistons, and if that doesn't work, get a big C- clamp and push the piston back in very slowly, it will blow brake fluid out of the reservoir if you go too fast. Now you should be all set. Hope this helps.
