I am needed to replace my brakes on a 2006 Touareg V6TDI as the warning light is showing. It is showing around 180,000kms and has already had them changed at around 90,000kms.
I understand there are several pad types that may fit. The car has 17" wheels. My compliance plate shows the PR # as front 1LC and rear 1KF. Can anyone give me some part numbers for these parts as it is a little confusing being sure I get the correct ones. I need discs, pads and wear indicators.
Has anyone any recommendations where they may be available at a good price in Australia or overseas? Is the use of drilled discs worthwhile? What about ceramic pads? My car is always filthy with pad dust. USA suppliers do not list this model as they were never available in that market. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
I am going to replace rotors and pads in March too. 172000 km on the clock (no warning icon yet). When swapping for winter wheels the mechanic visually inspected the brakes and said it should be done now. As the first iteration in your search consider the following numbers for PR-1KF type rear brakes*:
7L0 698 451 G, 7L0 907 637 C, 7L8 615 601 C
(I emphasize) that's what you need.
Anyway, as for me, when placing an order, first, I am going to contact sales manager by phone and reconfirm (one by one) the positions (in the list) are correct (before I give the green light for processing).
*I can't find 1LC, only 1LB, 1LE, 1LT, 1LU.
