have never really heard of that with a MKI TT as I have not done that when we changed them.... good so far on 45K on them and still alive......
thank god, lol... Do you have a short how to? Like any advice on how not to get air in the line, and stuff like that? I just want to be a careful as possible :) but i dont want to give the 600 to the dealer, thanks man!!
You don't need Vagcom to do the rear brakes.
You do however need a brake rewind tool to push the piston back on the rear calipers however you don't for the fronts. DO NOT attempt to just push it back without using a rewind tool.
Also there is no need to undo the bleed screws to do this but make sure you take off the cap on the fluid reservoir.
Thanks guys, so if I buy the tool from ecs and turn slow, with the cap off of the reservoir, I shouldn't get any air in the lines??
Anybody recommend a set of pads and rotors, and a dealer??

Correct on the cap off and you'll get no air in.
As for the pads and rotors I'm not sure as I'm in Scotland. I would suggest you joining the uk TT forum for advice as its great for advice. www.ttforum.co.uk we've got a lot of US members on there aswell who could possibly direct you further :)
Man u guys are the most helpful, ever, for real...
So is this the process?
1) jack car
2) remove wheel
3) pull ebrake connector
3a) open brake reservoir
4) dismantle caliper
5) replace rotor
6) remove old pads
7) rewind pistons
8) place new pads
9) reassemble caliper
9a) cap reservoir
10) lower car
Sorry I just don't want to get this wrong, bought the car and got the extended warranty and don't want to screw something up... And I also need some help with the bushings for the struts, any advice?
In this one the guy uses the bleed nipple but I have done this myself without doing it as have countless others. You just need to watch that the fluid doesn't spill over into the engine bay when you rewind the piston.
As for the caliper, you may find it helps to bolt it back on loosely when the rotor is removed as it gives good support when winding back the piston. If you just mean in general then tie it up to something so it doesn't hang from the brake hose whilst you're working.
