    Change Rear Discs Help

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping for a bit of help/guidance on my 2010 Scirocco.

    I've changed the front brakes/discs fine (He says laughing). However when it comes to taking the rear discs off, it just wont slide off! Caliper has come off fine, and everywhere I look for guidance it says the discs should pop off even though the caliper arm is still attached. They are quite rusted so perhaps the excess rust is causing an issue.

    If its not actually possible to slide off, has anyone removed the rear caliper arm before? Looks like a pain in the ****.

    If its any help, the disc parts are 1KD.

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Once you have removed the disc retaining screw, the disc should tap off.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks for replying crasher. My thoughts exactly, once the screw is out it should slide off but sadly it doesn't. I'm wondering if the inside of the hat has rusted so much that it's expanded beyond just being able to tap it off.

    Use a nylon or rubber mallet/hammer and tap around the edges of the discs, you could use a normal hammer as you're replacing the discs, a short sharp tap at 12,3,6,9 o clock you should fine once loosened they'll pop off.

    Appreciate the advice and thats exactly what I did, but it was the caliper arm keeping them on not the rust in the end. Eventually I used spline keys, loosened the arm, hit the arms back with the metal mallet and was able tos slide off. Then I put a new pair back on. Whilst doing so i gave the rear coils a change too!

    Ta for the advice though.
