    Possible brake problem.

    Hi all new to this site, I have a problem with my car at the minute it’s a 63 plate Golf 2.0 TDI, when I got out the other day I noticed one wheel was a lot hotter than the other 3 and I was only driving for approx. 25 mins to work, I’ve noticed now that when I reverse there’s a load squeaking noise coming from the same area I’d say, I’m thinking this could be the break calliper on the wheel and wanted to see if anyone has had the same issue etc

    Let me guess, the right rear is getting hot? DO NOT stick your fingers in there... I did this yesterday and my finger ends are still buzzing...

    I can't explain why but I reckon roughly 90% of the time it is the right rear caliper but often we fit a pair any way with new discs and pads and often also wheel bearings, ABS sensors and back plates as I have lost count of the number of times I have had to go back in there for a corroded ABS ring or rust from the old discs or disintegrating back plates stuck to the ring causing the ABS light to come on... do it right and do it once. The only calipers I will fit are genuine TRW NON exchange (no E after the part number) units that come in a red TRW box, I simply won't touch anything else.
