VW caliper slide pins
June 12, 2015 12:15PM
I just wanted to save fellow rallyist some frustration. Through hours of searching and dealing with part store folks, I solved it. Many believe you need to buy an entire new caliper mount to get new pins. Two of mine were galled, bent, and stuck. With heat, fluids, vise grips, and hammers we removed them, but couldn't buy replacements. I found this part # and almost identical. $5.99 for a pair from Autozone. Pins and bolts. They come in 2.800" I ground them down to 2.350" to match the old. Same diameter or maybe a thou or two smaller. Good to go!
