1) does anyone know if the european version of the wagons have an OEM emergency triangle available? I know the Golfs have a tray that can mount under the rear cargo cover.. but their cover lifts up with the hatch and ours retracts toward the front. It'd be cool to have a clean OEM option for this so I don't have to carry about a big aftermarket unit in one of the storage compartments
2) rear brake rotor replacement.. for some reason I had thought you could pull the rotors off without having to remove the rear caliper carriers. The last time I removed the rear carriers (to upgrade the rear disc size) I wasted a few hours.. ended up trying on another day with a friend's help. We finally got the carriers off after a lot of sweat was exerted.. and then broke a snapon socket when putting them back on. So, for those of you that have done this job on your own.. what tips do you have? I figure I need to get the rear of the car up higher and then use a longer wrench so I can get more force into loosening and then tightening the carrier bolts. They're torqued at 66 ft-lb (89 Nm) plus a quarter turn (90°). We couldn't get them past maybe 45° last time I tried.. and that's when we broke the socket (we actually broke two.....).
