Replacing front brake discs on td5

Postby strattonlandy » Fri 16 May 2008 8:59 pm

I've been asked by a neighbour to fit new pads and discs on a 53 plate td5, ive done pads before but not discs do you have to remove the hubs like you would on a tdi or do the discs just use retaining screws to hold them on??

simple on the TD5 its just caliper off which allows the disc to lift off the hub. From memory there may be one small retaining screw
