Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Is there shoes or pads on the rear for this car?? Also is there any special equipment needed to replace the front and rear brakes on these cars???
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

On rear brake shoes there are two different size shoes..one small and one big (PAD).
The SMALL pad goes towards the front of the vehicle. The BIG pad goes towards the back of the vehicle. This should help you...
