Have Volkswagen Questions? Ask an Expert Now.
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be patient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
That squeal is from the brake pad that is on the side of the piston, there is no anti squeal paste on the back of the pad that mates with the caliper piston.
Engine noise can travel through the car, but the only thing you can do about that is re-insulate the underside of the hood from the motor.
Just add the compound to the rear side of that one pad.
Anti freeze every 2 years or 24K miles.
