I have a 2006 vw golf tdi mk4 and currently changing out the left rear brakes ( rotor, caliper, pads). After putting everything together i notice the rotor is right against the caliper guide. Was wondering if anyone had insight on what might be wrong? Is there a shim i can put in at the caliper bracket?

Thanks,

Mike

Still have the boxes and invoice? Go back to the store and make sure they gave you the correct parts.

(I do miss Keith's warning abut people not introducing themselves and just here for a quick fix!)

I think you need to adjust or replace the handbrake cable.

Yeah I went back and made sure I had the right parts and I do. The old rotor was just touching the caliber and I assumed it was a bad rotor. Replacing the calliper because the piston was sticking.
Should I try using a wire wheel to cleanup the rust on the hub better?
