  1. LT - (type 28-21 and 2D) 1975 - 2006
    Hi All, I bought an 2006 LT46 a while ago, brakes worked perfectly fine. It has been stood for a year or so while it's been converted and the pedal has gone spongey. Done so far; - New Master Cylinder. - Fluid refresh & bled twice. When the van is off, the brake pedal is solid. With the van...
  2. Golf 6 (type 5K) 2009 - 2012
    Right, bit of a confusing problem here. My 2012 Golf 1.6 TDI got new brakes pads and a front and rear drop link. Ever since the calipers have been locking up at the rear. First it was the passenger rear, so got that replaced. Then, same happened driver rear, so i then got that replaced. She...
  3. General Chat
    Hi all, the 19 plate Tiguan R Type hasn't moved for 5 weeks due to me being in hospital. I took it out today for first time in 5 weeks and when I press the brakes there's knocking on rear left. I'm no car expert (I know where the liquids go) so is this a problem or just a result of not moving...
  4. CC - (type 35) 2012 - 2017
    Hi, I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a 1 owner low milage (26k) 2014 CC GT 2.0 TSI. Since I got it it's been fantastic apart from one little niggle. The car drives great and is quiet and smooth, apart from when I'm driving over rough road. The noise can only be described as a...
  5. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hello everyone, A couple of days ago, the rear brake lights on my car were stuck on. I turned off the car completely without realising, and the next day they were still on. I tried starting the car, but obviously the battery got drained. I jump started it with a booster pack and it was fine. I...
  6. Jetta 5 - (type 1K) 2005–2011
    Hi folks, I posted a thread yesterday about an ABS issue. I'm not sure where to put this thread under. Does anyone know where I could find someone who has diagnostics software that can diagnose the ABS system in central Scotland area? Regards Jack
  7. Polo 5 - (type 6C) 2014 - 2018
    My VW Polo brakes often stick, sometimes at junctions, sometimes after an overnight park. It happens either with the foot brake or handbrake. Whilst this is happening the foot pedal becomes solid. I have to simply force the car to move and the breaks unlock (usually the car shudders as I move...
  8. Passat 6 - (type 3C) 2005 - 2011
    Hi Everyone, I recently just bought a 2010 Passat Highline Estate TDi and I wanted to know which brake discs I should get for my car? I have 'free brakes for life' from Halfords Autocentres but they do not cover the cost for brake discs. Any suggestions? I was thinking Bosch discs over the...
  9. New Members Introduce Yourself Here
    Hi , I'm David from England. Just completed my first year of ownership of a 2011 Phaeton 3.0 Tdi. 26k miles, no real problems except an annoying brake judder that new disks appeared to cure, but only to come back within 3k miles. Really only apparent when breaking at 60-70, but whole car...
  10. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    I've found out that my Golf Mk 4's break pads and callipers at the rear all need replacing. I've been looking at buying the parts online and either fitting them myself, or getting someone in to do it for me. I was wondering if the "Hatchback (with 256mm Vented Rear Brake Calliper - Red...
  11. Maintenance & Service
    Hi Possibly a silly question here. (I am one of those people who can change the headlight bulbs themselves, but would rather call someone to change a wheel for them. :cool:) Is there an easy way for me to find out when my Passat's brake pads/discs need replacing? Is there a warning light that...
  12. Passat 5 - (type 3B) 1996 - 2005
    Hello experts, Wonder if you can give me some advice. My 2002 B5 Tdi diesel has 135, 000 on clock and although it has just passed its MOT i find the brake servo unit rather suspect. The fault being the servo takes time to build up from start up and only has enough vacuum for about 3 brake...
  13. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi there, I apologise for my first post doubling up as a query but I wonder if someone can help... I have an Mreg golf (it's getting on a bit but I do love it), and my right indicator won't work when I press my brake. Any ideas as to why this could be happening? The left one is fine. Thanks
