Along with the list of other things that I plan over winter, one of these is to overhaul the braking system. I've got a 2000 S3 with Standard brake calipers along with Mintex pads and performance drilled and grooved discs (not sure on make) all round.
Brakes have never been the best and the long periods of being stood and not being driven on long distances have sort of taken its toll on the discs.
Discs are solid and seem to have some life left in them but do have some surface rust currently building up on them on the inside face.
My plan over winter was to strip all 4 calipers, refurb them myself or send away. New hoses. New pads. Clean up the discs. Put back together. Then New fluid completely.
My budget is around £300....
What's the best plan of attack or action? I know there is companies out there that do refurb Calipers but they are like £200 just for fronts.
I would also need four clamps to clamp off the hoses whilst calipers are off.
TBH I could do with some help with bleeding the system and Vagcom if needed.
I know what needs doing, just not what's the best way to attack it. I'll love to spend more and get some Brembo's but with the possibility of spending upto £1500 over winter, I can only just use around £300 out of the budget.
