    Thanks, will go to the store and buy a real hammer. Unfortunately, i live in an apartment and barely have any tools.

    I believe i can remove the top carrier bolt (don't remember). Think i have enough room to use a screw and two nuts to sort of push the rotor away? Something like what is explained in this video

    Fatkids try some sort of degreaser around the hub and on the back of rotor. It's likely just bing held in by some debris or a bit of rust (thank you Canadian weather). When I did mine the drivers rear was on there similar to what your saying. Real hammers are great but use some sort of padding piece of 2x4 or anything that will handle the blow. Metal to metal on some components I just think is not the best, though usually the best solution, but A bad swing can or will cause damage.

    When you put it all back together there should be antisieze between the rotor and the hub assembly, my drivers rear was dry passengers was coated in antisieze. Make sure you coat things a bit. All the bolts too and torque to spec so later on you'll have less issues. Hope you get it sorted.

    Thanks for the tips! I plan on getting some PB Blaster from CT tomorrow and soaking it before giving it another go with the mallet. I am afraid that i will damage the rotor with the metal hammer and it will still be stuck . I put anti seize when i did the fronts as well as lubricated the guide bolts. Next brake job should it a lot smoother :)

    Use a real hammer. A nice ball peen will remove it.

    You aren't going to break a rust seal with a dead blow my friend.

    Can someone with a sedan and a OEM roof antennae please measure the distance from the back of the antennae to the end of the roof? Any references to actual hole measurements and location would be awesome!

    I get 7 & 5/8" from back of antenna housing to where the roof starts to curve. I don't really have time to pop it off for distance to hole though, so hopefully someone has a diagram

    Thanks for the help everyone. I got some PB Blaster and a sledge hammer, sprayed some PB Blaster and after a few good smacks with the sledge hammer, the rotors came off. The old and new rotor slide right in without a need to take off the caliper carrier bracket.

    ^^^^^ this is just asesome!!! Good work mate figures it was just a little contamination there holding shit right!

    Now onto a dumb question!! any one got a solution for the shakey rear view mirror?? An no I'm not giving up my solid mounts! I think it's essentially useless at this point. Same with my side mirrors, I may as well be tripping on acid looking into them as everything now is extremely fuzzy while I'm driving!

    Use your mirrors less. They get you into trouble. Hold your line and make them work to pass you. Because Race Car.

    Idk how you pulled that off, I was trying that myself when I did rotors a few weeks ago. I had to stand and bounce on the end of a breaker bar with a long metal pipe over the end of it to bust those caliper carrier bolts loose.

    Drop a couple tabs before you drive and maybe it'll appear clear...

    Were your rotors OEM or aftermarket? There could be a variation in the thickness of the ones you installed that made them unable to be removed without loosening the carriers.

    Remove rear dome light, there's a hole in the headliner cardboard, find the middle and punch.

    Go outside and punch your mark towards the inside. Drill, then step drill untill the sharkfin fits.

    Did it a couple years ago.

    I also put touch up paint on the exposed metal.

    I read on a few threads that some couldn't take the rotor off / put the new rotor in with the carrier bracket in place, so i was a bit nervous when i got to that point. But it came out smoothly, i just had to orient the rotor a tiny bit, but it took less than 10 seconds to take it out / put the new one in. The new rotor thickness is 0.470 in. (Power Stop EBR1006XPR) and a Centric rear rotor is 0.4685039 in. (11.90mm), so i am assuming they are stock thickness. If the rotor was thicker, i would have had issues as there wasn't a lot of room to allow a thicker rotor to slide in.

    what size spacers should I get? My wheels are 18x8.5 with a 225/40/18 tire. Not super low my FTG is about 24.5-25". It looks like I have a ton of room I'm thinking 20 rear and 15 front? think I can go more on the front and not rub?

    Depends on your wheel offset. Put a straight edge against your wheel and measure distance from wheel edge to fender at top

    OK so dumb question . My engine is dead, long live the engine. Have managed to get one from a local wrecking yard and they are putting a warranty on it, parts and labor so that's good. The engine has had some work done to it, there is a poly bush, it has the red r8 coils, a single stage clutch, and some shiny bits. The engine comes complete with the wiring and ecu. Not sure if the ecu was chipped. So to my question is can I use this ecu or does that raise a bunch of other questions/issues?

    Typing that code in on my google took me to the last time I searched it. Thread above shows a number of audi possible solutions. I think I swapped my fuel filter. And later had the repeat code which I think is when I changed out the fuel system sensor on HPFP
    Funny thing is that I need to replace the oring on the oil dipstick. That would be amazing. Haha
    Everytime I go low in gas to the red mark the p2393 comes up. Hope I haven't pushed my lpfp to hard and have to replace. P0171 is new since I replaced the fuel pressure sensor because the code p0087. And all that after a install a custom tune.

    dunno how I forgot that. They are +45. I've measured for spacers on other cars and still screwed it up so figured someone is running similar wheels to mine that can hopefully chime in. 18x8.5 ET45 or 35 seem to be pretty common

    Ok so i'm at loss here today i removed my passenger axle to do my inner boot. Everything went well until it was time to put my axle back on. The end of the axle won't seem to go inside the spline. I turned it with the car in neutral to see if it would go in but i won't. It got dark and i was tired so is there any way to put the axle in the whole? Do i have to remove my upper control arms and tie rod to get it in? I did it without removing them so i ask if there is a way to do this?

    Ok so i'm at loss here today i removed my passenger axle to do my inner boot. Everything went well until it was time to put my axle back on. The end of the axle won't seem to go inside the spline. I turned it with the car in neutral to see if it would go in but i won't. It got dark and i was tired so is there any way to put the axle in the whole? Do i have to remove my upper control arms and tie rod to get it in? I did it without removing them so i ask if there is a way to do this?
    Have someone turn the wheel all the way to the left. Insert axle. Tap it in with a hammer if needed.

    Tap it where though? Any specific location?

    Questions you thought were too dumb to ask

    The end of the axle (CV joint area) into the hub.

    Also, use some lubricant to help slide the spindle back in.

    If you are sure it's seated in the splines but you just can't get it to come through you can thread the axle bolt in and pull from that (gently with a pry bar if needed).

Not sure if the ecu was chipped. So to my question is can I use this ecu or does that raise a bunch of other questions/issues?

    Requires IMMO delete. Most guys are charging $100 to do this using BDM type software. I've got this stuff all built hooked up ready to use. I've scanned a few ECUS already but have not done any coding yet. BDM System cost me $70 usd. And a bit of time. For me where I am in the game it's worth it's weight in gold.

    Don't remove an upper control arm. Pop the lower rear ball joint out of the upright and you'll have plenty of play to get an axel in.
