    Thread: Brake fluid

    1. 07-30-2012 12:20 PM #1
      The other, friend of mine brought his 2000 Beetle 2.0 manual over, complaining about some brake vibrations.

      Drive the car, felt some slight vibration under light braking. Did a 60mph harder braking, when brake pedal 'fell to floor'.

      Pedal is firm when cold.

      Time for change out the brake fluid?

      Is the Beetle using standard (DOT 3, 4 or 5) or the special VW/Audi (expansive) stuff?

      When changing: Suck out with hand vacuum pump from bleeder on all 4 corners?

      You might want to check the brake booster vacuum hose for cracks or leaks.
