First time poster!!
I have a T6.1 Caravelle (2019, CXFA) with a CBI brake system on the front brakes (PR number 2E3, disc diameter 308mm).
I am going to change the pads and disks myself but I cannot find the torque values for a front CBI braking system. Does anyone have the torque...
My T32 T5.1 has failed it's MOT with binding front brakes, annoyingly only 2 years after new Brembo discs and pads all round. I've stripped the front down, cleaned them up and lubricated which resulted in a small improvement but then they started binding again. I've since read about...
Can anyone tell me which wire , red or yellow goes to what terminal on the new plug I've bought . 1 & 2, is marked on the plug. Looking at how it works does it make a difference it makes a continuous circuit when pads are worn.
Can anyone tell me if the DSG brake pedal should have a little Travel before Bite.. i don't drive the caravel that often so i cant remember, I've just swapped the front callipers for a big brake Kit, brakes bled no problem using a one man kit, no air bubbles,
ill assume the travel on a Dsg...
Am after a bit of advice/experience please!
2018 T6, 48500 miles. It’s juddering a bit when braking from higher speeds, not when <20mph ish to stop, probably more like >40mph to stop.
Spoke to my independent garage, who I trust, he’ll have a look but suggested brake discs could be...
So my 19 plate T6 has suddenly developed what can only be described as a loud creaking/squeaking from the rear end when reversing (at low speeds). Has anybody suffered with this before and if so found out what the cause was?
Any help greatly appreciated as always!
As the title. This has been happening for a few months & first became noticeable when we were skiing in the Alps. After a long downhill run with little braking or acceleration, I get a squeal on first acceleration at the bottom of the hill when we hit the flat. It sounds like a water pump/dry...
Hi you lovely lot,
Can anyone confirm if these - For Sale - Bf Goodrich/ Clayton alloys will fit my T32? I currently have 16" steels on but between myself and the seller, we are a bit confused regarding caliper size.
I'd assume 16 steelies will be the same as 16" Claytons?
I have a question re a brake problem maybe someone could advise on. Currently wandering in Europe but now on hold waiting for a new front left calliper pads and flexi pipe. Was on a level road not a steep decline when the TPMS warning flashed up. Stopped in next lay-by and found the front left...
Occasionally, when I gently depress the brake pedal I get nothing! Normal braking is ok but I've got no idea anymore where the bite point is. Had the garage renew and bleed the brake fluid, pads have plenty of meat etc. I'm thinking it's electrical only because of its random failure but I don't...
Greetings, apologies if already been posted but a search revealed nothing. I have a 2016 T6 Kombi. I keep getting an intermittent message on MFD, states “Brakes Failed! And then Workshop!” This appears when starting vehicle after being parked over night mostly. It appears for a second and...
Hi everyone. My first post I hope I don’t make and faux pas. I bought some black led lights to replace the red reflectors on the bumper of my t6.1 (tailgate) from eBay. They seem very simple but obviously no instructions when they arrived. They replace the reflectors with lights that you can...
We have had an annoying rattle outside of the camper since we bought it 3 years ago, i have looked underneath and not found it.
Whilst it has been for its annual services the garages have looked for it, best suggestion was the tailgate, but no solution.
having recently changed to B14 Komforts...
We have recently had a Forge big brake kit fitted so we have our entire original T6.1 front brakes spare now. We had driven just under 10,000 miles on them. They’re off our T28, pics and measurements below. They’re the smaller discs.
Open to offers, buyer to collect. We’re based in...
This is possibly a daft question.
I've just noticed that when I press the brake pedal I can hear a sound like a bike pump blowing a tyre up. And it continues until the pedal is solid, but the pedal slowly depresses if I keep pressure on.
Is this normal?
Hope someone can help. I want to change the flexible hoses on my front calipers but there seems to be two variation 550mm and 600mm. Which one is needed or can someone post a part number.
I want to change them as the brakes are binding on one side and after stripping and lubricating the...
