05 VW Brake pads.

Question From jayceevee24 on 05 VW Brake pads.

2005 Volkswagen Passat All-wheel drive Wagon 2.8 L V-6 70,000 miles. Can I just replace the brake pads ($175 at local mechanic), or do I have to replace the rotors too, as Volkswagen suggests ($1,000 at VW)? Pads are thin.

Response From Hammer Time

It needs to be inspected to answer that question but it's pretty standard for VWs to replace rotors with pads. They are engineered with softer metal for better friction and braking but that causes just as much wear to the rotors as the pads. If they are dished out, no question it needs them.

The prices sound a but excessive though it's possible. I did a BMW today that was $1000.

Gotta love those European cars!

I'm sorry HT that you were subjected to such torture. I think you should get the rest of the week off with pay. I would rather put nitrous on a Kia then work on a beemer.


Response From Loren Champlain Sr

>>rather put nitrous on a Kia then work on a beemer. << Or deal with their owners.

Response From steve01832

Muffy, Muffy, the beemer is in the shop. I must take the Jaguar to go golfing.


Response From Loren Champlain Sr

Ah, you understand what I meant. LOL. Just wonder what percentage of these 'types' are leased vs. owned?

In my part of town, they are just spare cars that are left here all summer so they will have a car to drive when they come down here.

You gotta get used to it in my part of town. Remember, my shop is right on the beach in a resort community. Everything's a Lexus, a Beemer or a Mercedes and the Lexus never breaks............ I hate em.

Response From steve01832

Where I live it's Hondas and Kias baby. Let's soup 'em up, chop 'em down, and listen to the angry swarm of bees due to their tomato soup can size mufflers. LMAO

Brake rotors and brake pads replacement

Question From philibai on Brake rotors and brake pads replacement

Hey guys,

I am considering replacing my brake pads on my car. I have a 2005 Lexus RX330 AWD with roughly 41k miles on it. Lexus dealerships are telling me I have two options. Option 1, replace the pads and resurface my rotors. Option 2, I should replace my pads and rotors. I have never had any experience on replacing rotors or resurfacing rotors. From my experience with my previous two Lexus, I only needed to replace my car pads and my car was good to go. I never needed to resurface my brake rotors.

Is this another way, that Lexus dealerships are trying to scam money off me? Will Option 1 be enough for me or do I really need to consider on replacing my pads and rotors?

Thanks guys

Response From Hammer Time

No, they are giving you 100% fact. It is important for the new pads to have a fresh, clean, flat surface to ride on or you will encounter noises and all the reasons people complain about their brake jobs. At that mileage, as long as the old pads didn't go metal to metal, resurfacing should be sufficient. They have to be measured for minimum thickness before being turned anyway but that shouldn't be a problem with that mileage.

Response From philibai

They told me that I will probably need to replace the from rotors because the front rotors take more abuse from braking. Is this a reasonable statement?

Thanks for much for your expertise.

Response From Hammer Time

Not likely on your car. They are exaggerating unless you are very hard on the brakes. They would rather replace than machining but it shouldn't be necessary unless the brakes were abused.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

As said the rotors can be measured as to whether they need to go or could be resurfaced. They must be a certain thickness even after the machining or frequently warp and you won't be happy.

I'm shocked at the junk mail I see that claims just pad replacement which is really just bait to get you there and tell you they really can't do just that and if they are it's irresponsible auto service!

Quality new would be my suggestion. Rotors don't come with lot's of extra metal to machine off anymore. They days of doing that for three or more brake jobs are over. Cars don't weigh 10 tons either!


Response From way2old

Resurfacing or replacing rotors are not scams. Proper brake jobs are completed by resurfacing ot replacing the rotors. Just replacing the pads may be good enough for you in the drivewayt, but there are liabilities the dealer has to be careful of. So If the dealer or a shop does them, they should address the rotors.

brake pads dragging

Question From Guest on brake pads dragging

Hi, I have a 2002 lexus is300, with 82,000 miles on it. I just replaced the rear brakes, including rotors, calipers and pads. I bled the brakes good, and I have one of the pads dragging pretty bad. Any ideas what could be causing this? The calipers are also 2 pistons, and the pads are seated correctly in the calipers, i've checked that several times already. Thanks

Response From Guest

Take the wheel back off, remove the caliper, make sure the rotor is seated properly and grease the slider pins

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

There are basically 3 things that will cause that in only one wheel

  1. Caliper piston is binding in caliper
  2. One or more of the caliper slides is frozen
  3. rubber brake hose is ruptured internally and restriction return flow of the brake fluid

Tires + Brakepads

Question From yogi on Tires + Brakepads

I need some suggestions from gurus here.
I have a 92 lexus es 300 .Taking it to regular maintainence I found out that I need a new set of tires.
Now if I get the non-branded tires purchased +installed from the auto shop I shell out 590 $$.
Else if I bring my own tires he says he would cut 360 $ and still charge me the balance .

I am planning to get tires from discount tire online .Pirelli costs me 75 bucks each .
My question is how reliable is it to get tires from discount tires online considering they are selling me Pirellis for 75 bucks.
I don't have Sams club or Costco membership .

Also I need to get my brake pads done .

So do i have to do these both jobs together?
I mean in 1 go ..
can I do the tires and then do the brake pads later.(Balancing and all that stuff...)

Pls help..

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Brakes vs Tires: If either are toast you need them all at once. If tires are still legal get the brakes now if you know they are gone or real low.

Tires: You should just ask what a shop wants for "Mount, balance, new valve stems, ask for anti-corrosion goo for the rims, and tire disposal if you don't want your old ones to deal with" They aren't free to dispose of where I live.

Where to buy tires is your call as is the brand. Make sure any tire is the correct size and rating for the car. If you bring your own tires to a place YOU are responsible for the tires and where you bought them. If something is defective it's your problem vs a shop/tire store should stand by what they sell.

The price clubs: If that's what you want they allow non members to purchase items but here with a 5% surcharge - do the math vs the cost of the membership. Some clubs do the tire installations - check.

You should also consider a four wheel alignment if you are getting new tires that's a great time to get that done for the best life and performance out of the tires.

The pricing you stated doesn't add up. Just ask what the charges are "a la carte" and they should just tell you or even have it posted.....
