    DIY Brakes on the q7

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I just got a bid from Audi for new brakes on all four corners for a grand. Ive always done my own brakes but this is the first German car i have owned that i intend to wrench myself. Does anyone know if its just as basic as the american and asian cars or does the "German Engineering" kick in?

    That was just brakes and labor. I need to buy the shop manual and see what it entails to see if i want to do it myself or waste the $500 having Audi do it. Do you know of any downloadable manual?

    If you mean replacing the pads and rotors, this might help. I know that this is a DIY for a Touareg, but they have similar/identical brake systems (Brembo). If any thing it should be a good starting point.
