The main difference on changing the rear brake pads or rear brake rotors on a VW Jetta TDI (2006 shown but it will also work on 2005.5-2010 and the cup edition) is that the carrier bolts are triple square (12 point) and that the rotor set screw is now a allen head instead of a phillips.

The full writeup with pictures is below.


The only thing to watch out for is that the space for the 15mm carrier nut is narrow so not all open ended wrenches will fit.
