  2. After changing the rear shoes and handbrake cable I want to bleed the brakes. I need to know what size the nut is asi don't have a spanner that small. I tried to use an old box bike spanner but even that was too big. Anyone know. It's got to be 4 or 5mm. Can you buy a bleed spanner that small?
  3. I had a bit of a problem I wanted to fit Vauxhall Brakes got the carrier and calliper and had new brake hoses made. Problem is they don't fit under the wheel by a nats nuts. I think I need different carrier has anyone else done the Vauxhall set? Or I go back to the 1H0615123C standard callipers until I get bigger wheels or be brave enough to shave the carriers
  4. Hi everyone would really appreciate some help with this as it's driving me mad!! I've very recently purchased a 2008 1.4 Polo. It was originally a demo car with one previous owner before myself, very low milage, and fully serviced by trusted dealer it was purchased from. I've had it for about 2 months now and recently there has been a strange squeaking noise developing in driver footwell coming from my pedals?! I'm certain it's not clutch but possibly brake as stupidly noisey when slowly going over bumps. Can be heard both inside and out loud and clear ! Any suggestions as to what this might be as I'm a stupid woman that hasn't a clue ? Thanks ! ???
  5. Here's the details: 1 year ago I had an new caliper on the drivers side because it was playing up. 3 weeks ago I had new discs and pads on the front because the drivers side was tight (A four wheels move without any brakes) , the drivers side takes about 5 times as much effort to turn it. They all stop when the brake pedal is applied, they all release but still the drivers side is what I call tight (binding) Temp at the moment when driven Passenger side 25 C, drivers side 40 C. Now the amount it binds differs day by day. I've had it where you could fry eggs and even hotter the disc was bright red. So last week I took it to my local garage and told him all the details. He fit a new caliper and hose on the drivers side and gave it me back say it was fine. It's still the same!!! With or without the engine the symptoms are the same. It's like this drivers side has more base line pressure than all the other. I thought it may be the abs sensors so I took out the abs fuses and tested again. I've checked all the other hoses for bulges all look good and clean. Thought it may be the master, but I would of thought this would cause all the brakes to be applied. Brake pedal is highish, engine off, press, press, firm. Engine on with foot press it dips a little. Now I have another ABS controller that I could put on but if anyone has any input I would be well happy. Cheer, Nik
  6. Car been running fine lately, even with all of the cold weather. However, just recently i've noticed that the EPC light has come and i'm not sure what it means. Looked in the manual and it says to take it to VW garage to get it checked. Any ideas? Did some research and a lot of people are saying its a faulty brake light switch, but as far as i know brakes are working fine. Thanks, Tom.
  7. I've got a Polo GTI which I'm planning a 1.8 turbo conversion for, and I've got a TDI Polo which already has a G60 brake upgrade, which will be transferred over to the GTI in the near future. I've done a little search but I can't really find what I'm after, which is am I able to fit something like a 4 piston caliper over the 280mm discs, using the same wheel hubs and everything, under a 15" rim. (ideally without spacers but that's not a major issue) Is it a nessicary modification or would the standard G60 upgrade be adequete for a 1.8t conversion?
