      Funny I had a very similar thing on a B6 just recently. Checked all of the usual stuff but every time the owner took it home the code would come back and it would start quietly misfiring. After a lot...

      Its normal for the disc not to be attached to the hub, although usually the brake pads will hold it closer to the hub than that. There should be a threaded plastic bar in the toolkit which you screw...
