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.

SOURCE: Put in new brake shoes on VW POLO

New shoes have more meat on them, thus will normally be too tight against drum. Did you back off the adjusters to compensate for that?

There is an adjuster, just not a normal one(it's a VW!). It's a small, flat, wedged pin, about 1.5" - 2" long, sitting vertically behind the shoe opposite the parking brake lever, attached to the only vertical spring in the assembly. In addition, you could try getting a round file and removing some of the material from the inside edge of the drum.

Hi I am from Norway and have replaced my proportion valve for rear brakes on my Corolla 1996 1,3 xli wagon.I am wondering how I can bleed off air and flush back to new brake fluid.Do I need to connect a...


None of those things . Just bleed the brakes normally starting from the longest line and ending with the shortest. The proportioning valve will always let brake fluid through, just not enough to lock up the rear brakes until you press heavy on the pedal . It is there so that full pressure to the large front brakes is reduce in proportion to the smaller rear brakes.

2005 VW Jetta TDI Wagon: Left brake light doesn't


Very difficult. You have to open the inside access door on the drivers side, remove the amp and wheel well cover, pinch the tabs and the bulb cluster will release. The taillight assembly is bolted from inside of the car, so it can't be done outside.

Rear brakes locked on my 92 loyale wagon. How do I


Your rear emergency cables are frozen. You can try pulling back toward the rear of the vehicle on the center cable while someone inside wiggles the lever up and down slightly NOT all the way up. Then by grabbing individually the left cable and twisting and bending it,it may release. Do the same to the other side. Soon as you can get a can of Liquid wrench or an equivelent, NOT WD-40, and soak the two rear lines going to each wheel. ASAP, the rear cables and any other frozen/worn parts should be replaced.

Are any special tools required or any special process to change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Jetta? I have changed pads on BMW's Fords Chevys etc....but you never know, so I thought I'd ask. thanks!


These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 v.w jetta


When I changed my sisters VW Jetta I used the follow:
  1. Lug Wrench
  2. Ratchet
  3. Socket to fit the caliper bolts (can't remember size)
  4. C-Clamp to push the piston back in
  5. Bucket to set the caliper on while changing the pads
On the rear brakes I had to borrow the special tool to push in rear disc brakes from AutoZone, this tool spins the piston while pushing it back in.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and thanks for using FixYa!

My ebrake is stuck


Grab a small hammer, slide under the back wheels, you will see the wire and springs on the inside of either brake disc. Tap forward on each. Once free'd up, drown it in PB or lock ease. then work the brake up front for a while. It's mostly from brake dust buildup. Next time you have the rear brakes done replace the EB parts. Hope this helps

Hi there, I have a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Flair 2. I've had the car for about a year now and overall it's been an excellent car for it's age. However, there's always something that needs to be fixed and lately I've had throttle response problems. I do not have any mechanical backround, so I will describe it as best as I can. For one, it seems apparent this is an issue when the engine is cold (or not sitting in the sun all day). I will put the foot down, and it won't respond until it gets to about 3000rpm (right around when I'm thinking about changing gears), and then it rocket ships forward. Before it finally responds, there's a lot of shaking going on in the engine bay. It doesn't sound pleasant either. I took it in for an oil change, and they put fuel injector in it and it seemed to be a temporary solution. Whatever the case, there's a poor connection between me putting the throttle down and the car responding to the action. I do rev it up before I get going, but it's kind of futile. So as a result, I have a tendency to stall in first gear at low speeds as the gas doesn't react when I want it to, and the clutch is usually released by that point. After about 5-10 minutes of constant driving, it will accelerate smoothly. If you can point me in the right direction, whether it's "fuel" related, or it's some sort of heat sensor (I have no idea what I'm talking about), let me know if you've had similar experiences. All my repairs have cost me less than a 100 each time, I want to keep it that way.
