    Hi

    When my S3 was having a routine brake fluid change at the dealer recently, they commented that all four brake caliper nipple caps (? I think this is how they described them ?) were missing.

    They ordered them for me and here they are. They are the size of tyre dust caps - about 1cm wide - and there are two fat and shallow ones, and two more like tyre caps.

    Can anyone tell me where they go?! Had a look around the brakes but not sure where they go. Help appreciated!

    Cheers.

    you have a tiny nipple on each caliper which you can only se at the back the side you cant see when you look at through the wheel, the back you can get to by laying down and front you need to jack up the front, and fro fitting them they just push on.

    As said, they simply push onto the end of the bleed nipples to stop them getting clogged up.
