mk4 golf rear brakes

6 posts in this topic

The rear brake pads need to be replaced on my brothers mk4 golf and I am wondering if I need rotors too. I watched videos and they always replaced the rotors and pads, is this necessary?

You can get away with just changing pads but it is best practice to get the rotors skimmed/machined so they are flat (usually around $25 per corner) - this can only be done if the rotor thickness is still within spec - if they are to thin you will need to get new rotors.

If you know the part number you can search it up and check the minimum thickness recommended so you can determine whether to machine or replace.

BNT usually give a good set for a fair price. I got some oem brembo replacements for my v6 golf there for about 90 ea and those were quote big vented and what not.

      Hi all. So I've just seen on Facebook about a thing called The Gumboot rally it's on the weekend of the 7th of April. Goes from Hamilton somewhere down to New Plymouth then across to Taupo and also includes The Forgotten Highway which is an awesome road to drive, as I have done it a few times now. If you are interested go have a look on Facebook should be a fun weekend I reckon.
       
      Stay safe on the roads over this time there are some CRAZY people out there who only think about themselves!!

      Help me please Hi iv fitted a dump valve to my vectra c 19 cdti 150 bhp. The 1 I bought was a twinport or receculation valve I don't no just bought and had a go of fitting it my self.  On looking at the car I thought I needed to block the 2nd port so have done bought a t and fitted it on the main intake Of The top Of The intercooler to the inlet on to Of The head.  Ran the bleed pipe and td it in to the on top Of The intake now it's just realeasing through the revs rather than when I lift of it's not because I blocked the other port is it thanks
