    Need to replace rear discs & pads on 2002 1.8TS Quattro. I'm not driving the car hard so any info on what parts are best to replace much appreciated.

    Might aswell stick to OE if you don't drive it hard, try your local motorfactors, or GSF/Eurocarparts for best prices on disks and pads. Caliper piston is screw in, so you will need a caliper wind back tool.

    Is the caliper wind back tool a specialist item or can something be "adapted" . Done screw back ones before with screwdriver/similar!!!

    i just used an adustable spanner to wind them back, not ideal but does the trick, just watch for brake fluid leaking out the resevoir though

    wheel off, undo the necessary gizmos that become aparant on inspection, and very lightly hammer them off... lightly! lol
