Question about 1997 Audi A4

1 Answer

I am trying to rplace the right rear brake rotor on my 1997 Audi A4 Quatro. I have it all apart but the rotor will not slide off the axle even after I removed the hub bolt. Do I need a puller? And, if I use a puller, will I damage the axle? Bob

It should just slide off if the caliper and carrier are off. Try hitting the sides of the "hat" (the center section where the lug bolt holes are) with a hammer - it's probably just seized. When you reassemble everything, be sure that end axle bolt gets proper torque (140 ft-lbs plus a 180-degree turn).

Rear brakes are grinding on one side.

Replace the pads and see if rotor that pad was grinding on can be resurfaced.If not replace it.While you have it apart lube the caliper slide's with anti-seeze or a brake lube so the caliper can move smoothly.
