  Note
After every brake pad change, depress brake pedal firmly several times with vehicle stationary, so that brake pads are properly seated in their normal operating position.
Use the brake filling and bleeding equipment -VAS 5234- to draw off brake fluid from the brake fluid reservoir.
Before removing a brake caliper or disconnecting a brake hose, fit brake pedal depressor -V.A.G 1869/2- (when doing this, release pressure in system).
