Brakes

Post by squabeggs » Jun Sun 03, 2012 4:46 pm

Ok, so anyone want to give me a brief rundown on the breaking system of mkiv's? Basicly, I have 3 out of 4 disc's that show wear from breaking action...i assume all 4 are used by the abs system. (rears are not just parking brake)

My passenger rear disc is rusted all over the face...ie no wear from braking action...

Stuck slide pins/crapped out caliper? Can the calipers be refreshed/rebuilt? Easy to do, or just buy new?
