    Rear and front pads need replacing soon,any special tools needed to do the rear's or is it as easy as the front?

    Also is it an allen key job or a socket set?

    fronts are easy but you will need a special tool to wind in the piston on the rears.

    standard socket set will be fine to do the fronts

    I used a G-clamp and a pair of vicegrips, It would be easier with the tool, you can get them on ebay...always handy for the future...

    Fronts are easy..

    G-clamp and vice grips is how I've done it in the past too - the genuine VAG wind-back tool is pretty pricey, although you can get generic ones from Halfrauds
