well, I only looked at this thread after I started to remove everything. Have never done brake pads before on any of the cars, never owned one long enough, so I just started to take it apart and figure it out. Real easy, 20 minutes about for each side, but then came those clips, and 2 hours of frustration and pain, yesterday.
Then I ran upstairs and looked at this thread, didnt really help at all, but my friend and I got them in this morning after about 30 minutes, with just a screwdriver and a thumb this time. Though next time, ill definitely make sure not to take them off.
It makes even the Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT feel slow and pointless. It is a triumph for lunacy over common sense, a triumph for man over nature and a triumph for Volkswagen over absolutely every other car maker in the world.
