    S3 front caliper removal

    Just a quickie chaps

    I have the squeaky pad syndrome going on. Whats the procedure for caliper removal

    Is it just the 2 allen bolts as per the TDI or the 4 torx bolts at the back of the caliper

    Cheers

    Squeaky pad syndrome, whats that when its at home.

    I know of rattly pad or screeching but not squeaky.

    Trying to remember but I'm sure it was just the 2 bolts hidden by the plastic caps, I'll have to check as havnt touched mine for ages, brakes that is

    Cheers Nigel. I had a quick look at the weekend & assumed it was the same as the TDI. I also assume the 4 torx are to split the caliper.

    Yup, 2 big bolts hold the caliper to the hub. The torx bolts are to split the caliper (I think, can't picture the back of the thing).

    Yep. It's the 2 Allen bolts hidden by the plastic caps. You'll have to compress the piston while it's in place to allow the calliper to come off
