    General Van Chat
    Hi all. I have some caliper issues on my 20001 tdi 2:5 just put new discs and pads on but after much cleaning it is still binding slightly. Can I remove the ant squeal shim from the new pads to give me the 1mm I need for them to fit better without effecting braking. Cheers

    I currently have a '95 2.4d with standard disc front/drums rear I need to replace the front caliper, and I'd planned on upgrading the brakes anyhow in due course ahead of my planned turbo conversion.

When I test drove the new van I noticed a lot of brake judder and on closer inspection found the front disks to be very worn and almost certainly warped, did a bit of haggling with the seller and...
