I need to know the size tool to use to remove the caliper bolts on the back brakes on a 2002 VW Jetta wagon TDI - standard star sizes are not working.


They are Torx heads on the calibers, the parts store sells them in a 4-pack for German cars. You will need a special tool to retract the caliper pistons also.

Changing front rotors on car. Can I remove entire caliber ***.including the mounting bracket or do I have to remove the caliber itself then remove caliber mount bracket? Also, do I have to bleed the...


To replace the rotors, remove the calipers and then just take the rotors off. If you don't open the hydraulic system (you should not need to) no bleeding is necessary, but you will need to retract the caliper pistons using a "c" clamp in order to get them back over the new rotors. Make sure the slide pins that the bolts go through to hold the calipers on are free and that the piston boots are in good condition to avoid any further problems there.

How do you change the front disk pads


The pads are mounted to the caliper. The caliper is bolted to the spindle bracket. There is brake hardware which should be replaced with the pads.
Look behind the wheel at the backside of the spindle bracket. The spindle bracket is on the verticle shaft with coils on one end and an A shaped bracket on the other. There are usually 2 bolts that may have normal bolt ends or "Allen" bit fittings.

When you buy the brake hardware you can check for the proper socket for the mounting bolt. You unbolt the caliper, use a rope or wire to suspend it under the frame without disconnecting the brake line.

The pads come off with the hardware. You need to compress the caliper pistons to make the new pads fit. Use a C clamp and an old pad to squeeze the pistons back into the caliper. Remove the Master Cylinder cover so fluid can return.

Then use a bonding chemical like "brake quiet" to mount the rear pad to the caliper piston. Mount outside pad to caliper and then slide caliper over the rotor on the spindle bracket. Lube the slides of the new brake hardware and bolt into place.

You should have the rotors checked for thickness and whether they are warpped before you put on the new pads.

DONT KNOW HOW TO REMOVE THE BREAK CALIBER


To remove the caliper, you need a torx head tool (can't remember exact size) to remove the two slide pin bolts.(inside the two small rubber boots at each end of caliper) After getting them loose, remove the brake hose, then remove bolts and caliper. (don't loose the two copper washers...if they aren't in the new caliper box you will need them.) Check and see if the caliper retracts easily after it is removed. If it does, the rubber brake hose may have internally failed and is your problem. If piston is very hard to move, get a new caliper. Replace both side brake pads, not just side you are workingon. (recommend both calipers as well but most times it works fine with one.
When replacing, make sure slides are free in calipers and thread pins by hand so that you don't cross thread them. After it's back together bleed front brakes and before moving car step on brake to re-set pistons.
