On one of the front driver side pads there is a sensor for low pads. He either did not hook it back up or got a lose connection to it.

Your VW has pads all they way around. The front can be changed with out any special tools a C-clamp would be good as for the back your going to need to rent a Brake Caliper Piston Tool that pushes the piston in and turns at the same time. And as for the light on the dash board that comes on when brakes are low and should go out when you change them make to plug the sensor back in and if that doesnt help just disconnect the battery.

Light due to low pads in front or bad plug

There are disc brakes all the way around so you would be changing the pads.. Any special tools needed would be supplied by most parts stores ( brake piston compressor)..

Check bulbs on car for the circle with dash light problem .. Good luck

I have 2002 chrysler grand voyager 3.3 litre auto. abs light came on and is gone now , but there is a lot of vibration and rattle when i press brake. What do i do?


Inspect both the front and rear brakes. Including rotors, drums( if equipped in rear), abs sensors and wiring to the sensors, and brake pads/shoes. Also be sure to remove the calipers and look at the brake pads to check for worn out or uneven wear and replace if necessary. Hope this helps

What do need (tools) and the process to replace front and rear brakes in a 1998 Chevy Malibu?


Tools: 3/8 drive sockets and ratchet. 4, 6in extensions. 3/8 to 1/2 in adapter and 1/2 in breaker bar, SAE wrench set, hex key set (large) Long big flat screwdriver vise grips, pliers, brake spring tools. Jacks stands and tire equipment. Supplies: New pads, shoes, and brake fluid. Jack up the front and jackstand the car (block the back tires w/ wooden chocks). Remove the front tires. Loosen the caliper assembly bolts and pry the caliper away from the pads. Remove bolts and lift caliper up and out of the way being careful not to damage the lines and keeping the pads matched. Replace in reverse. Do the rear next. Remove tires, drums. Use the brake spring tools to take the shoes off front lining first. Place the springs on the ground neatly (like they looked on the backing plate). Replace in reverse. Start car and give brakes a few pumps and top off reservoir.

Rear brakes scrubbing are they pads or drums


pads go with disc brakes
shoes go with drum brakes.

If you have drums in the back, the rear brake shoes may be worn out or are not held together with the springs (a spring may have broken).

Have the brakes checked as soon as possible for broken or worn parts.

Good luck on this repair.

Need to replace the front & rear brakes . Is there any special tools needed to do this job .


For caliper brakes, mainly a large C-clamp or brake cylinder piston tool, to collapes the piston back into the caliper, to install the new pads. If you have rear drum brakes, they make a couple different brake spring tools for removing the springs on the brake shoes.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta


im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.

crawl underneath the front and look at the caliper if it has a duel piston caliper you will see 2 circles about 3 inches across and if it is a single piston caliper it will only have one of these circles in the middle this iswhere the pistons are. yes those pads are suitable. As for bleeding the brakes you need to start at the passengers side rear wheel and bleed it first then go to the drivers side rear wheel then go to the passengers side front wheel and then finally the drivers side front wheel. If you are only replacing the brake pads and shoes then you don't need to bleed the brakes. If you are bleeding the brakes then you will want to be sure to top up the brake fluid as you are doing thebleeding process as if you don't you will end up having to start all over again. as for special tools you may need a 3/8 hex bit and a 8 inch " C " clamp to compress the calipers after you remove the brake pads. If you are replacing the rotors you may require a special socket fo dis-assebleing and re-assembly of the front hubs.
