This method works and has no error codes.... or any problems...
only took about 10 minutes per wheel with the right toolz...
Brilliant. Just did mine, although I have the VAG-COM. But this is great news and keeps from having to rmove the motor. Great job!
Be careful not to overdrive the motor though. Good idea to use in-line fuse on those trick wires.
BTW- For those that are replacing rotors as I did, the two bolts holding the caliper carriage are those star socket types. Little trick many know is that a regular 3/8" square drive like on your ratchet or socket extension fits these perfectly. No special tool needed.
