  1. Golf Owners Club
    I recently changed the front pads and rotors on my Golf Mk6 (2.5L). The job went smoothly and everything looked to be in good shape. But on my first long trip after that, I noticed that when I start to press the brake pedal, there is often a single, noticeably loud clunk/knock. It comes from the...

  4. Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    Hello everyone, I just replaced my master cylinder, along with all the brake shoes and springs inside the drums. I bled the brakes so there's no air in the lines but for some reason there's little to no pressure when pressing the brakes and the car has little to no response. When replacing the...
  5. Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Hello , I have a 2.0 TDI 150 MK7 and need to replace my brake discs. On ECP they gave me the options for vented brake discs for the front but not for the back as they only have the solid option , so I was just wondering if only solid can fit in the rear of my golf or if I can also get the vented...

    Hi, I don't yet own a classic VW... I have two NewBeetles. But that's irrelevant. My question is, I want to buy a beetle to build into a trail buggy that remains street legal and sensible. So I plan to use fairly narrow but taller tires, disk brakes, upgraded shock absorbers, Xenon headlights +...

    I'm contemplating doing a conversion from drum to disk brakes on my 74 bug. I am informed that karmin gia had disk brakes at that time. Any help on the years that are compatable would be appreciated.
  9. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...
  10. Polo Owners Club
    Hello, We recently bought a used Polo 1.4 Match DSG for my son and I was looking at the rear lights which seem to be very weak. I opened them up and realised they use a much smaller light bulb than the indicator, brake and reverse light bulbs, I think it is a H21W, but not sure. With the covers...

    I am a 28 year veteran of long haul tractor trailer experience. I have never used electric brakes before, and have purchased a 2018 Atlas. I will be mainly pulling a travel trailer around BC, so it will be mountainous conditions. As I am used to air brakes, what are the differing factors when...
  14. Beetle Owners Club
    Evening all, Bought myself a low mileage 2.0 Beetle 8v last year for my daily 60+ mile commute to work. Only had 65k on the clock but hadn't been very well looked after. Terrible after market lights to start with, dirty interior and had clearly sat for a while but for £900 was worth a punt. 12...
