      70k miles on those pads? What?

      Dealer replaced mines at 30k miles!7

      Yep, almost. Last trip to the dealer for recalls they recommended replacing them. I bought this car new and have just shy of 69,200 on her now, so I rounded up. The remaining pad would certainly make it another 800 miles anyway. Maybe they lasted so long because it's a MT? Less braking because of downshifting and no braking against the engine at low speeds like an AT. Front brake pad thickness is still near new.

      Had this fault show up once the other day, and havent seen since. Im surprised this is covered by a TSB since its a known issue. Anyone else had problems with door latches?

      I had my parking brake do the same thing as you describe... switch was replaced by dealer at no cost under CPO at about 60K.

      I've already replaced the switch though.

      I got 62k out my rear pads of my 6mt 2.0t. I am a little curious if the parking brake button is VW OEM deal since you got it from overseas. If it OEM VW part and switch is revision C version then this throws a bit of wrench in my idea.

      It looked like the real part, but didn't have the actual VW/AUDI marking on it like the factory part. That's probably the problem.

      Old vs new pads:




      Now to beat the frozen rotor off the hub.....

      Is that about 3-5mm left on old pads?

    10. 09-09-2012 06:17 PM #35
      Probably. That's the outside pad. The inside is a little thinner. I think the dealer said they were 2mm. Didn't get the swap done as I don't have a 14mm triple square here. Have to order it, no local tool stores carry them...

      Still couldn't get the rotor to budge (yes I removed the torx screw). Sprayed it down with penetrating oil and then made sure to get it off the rotor surface with brake parts cleaner before I put the old pads back on.

      If your replacing the rotors just knock them with a hammer gently. lol

      Oh I tapped them, more than gently. Didn't budge. Penetrating oil will have a couple days to soak and I'll get my sledge out. New rotors already here.

      Sandman - where did you get the pads and rotors and how much? I have an '07 6MT and replaced my rears at 51k and am still on the fronts at 85K. Am hoping to get to 100k and will do fronts and prob rears again as well. I imagine this time I should do rotors, right?

      Thanks

      My 06 Passat started having the same Parking Break error. When I put the key in the ignition and try to release the parking break it comes up with an error, after I take the key out and put it back in it fixes the problem for a few days and then the error will come back.

      I have done a little research and as I have seen on here, replacing the Parking Break Switch should fix the problem. Has it fixed the problem for anyone that has had the same issue?

      I had my switch replaced 5 days ago after an error, it wouldn't engage then one day decided to start working. .
      I took it to the dealer as I had to replace my rear pads anyway, they didn't come up with another reason. All seems fine now

      Thanks for the comment, my break pads are still in good condition. Did the switch stop working before or after you replaced it?

      Sorry I didn't get back to this thread- missed the subscription button so I didn't know there were replies. I went with the Blauparts U-Slot kit: http://www.blauparts.com/proddetail....d=D2B1139-01-G

      That's the front. The rear kit is less than $90 for pads and rotors. After the anti-rust coating wore off the brake feel and stopping power is much improved. That's really saying something, since it's the rear brakes. The front should make a bigger difference, but since I still have 2/3 of my front pads left and no rotor warp at 73K miles, I'm not changing the fronts just yet. Hopefully the anti-rust coating does its job- hate looking at rusty rotors behind my wheels.

      The brake fault warning has happened a few more times. It seems every time I open and close the parking brakes with Vag-Com, the fault goes away for a while. I still suspect it might be because the parking brake motors are reaching the limit of their travel because the pads were so worn down. Now that I have new pads and rotors installed, I will know for sure if the problem returns or stays away completely. Time will tell.

      New rotors look good behind the wheels and braking power is impressive.
