    Front Brake Job

    Anyone know if you need a special tool to get the front brake calipers off the Cayenne? I have always done my own
    brake jobs on other makes and it always seemed like you need the manufacturers tool because of a non standard head on the bolt that holds the calipers in place...Does anyone know?
    Thanks

    ...front calipers...no
    ...front rotors...yes
    ...rear calipers...yes
    ...rear rotors ...yes

    ...all triple square bits, you'll need for Cayenne brake/rotor DIY, are included in a VIM tools 8 bit XZN 100 set:

    What Oz said, easy job. Pix on my rennlist gallery

    Re: Front Brake Job

    Thanks Ozr and Mick
    Much appreciated. Porsche quoted me $200 for the brake pads and another $20 for the wear sensors. Does that seem right? Sounds a little pricy for just brake pads. Any suggestions on alternative supplier?

    To add a little salt to the wound, I'm taking delivery on a GTS in a month. Went 63k on the original brake pads and now 1 month left of ownership and the warning light goes off. Although that's some pretty good mileage on the original set of pads. Lots of engine braking I guess....

    Thanks again - Paul

    Re: Front Brake Job

    I think its high by about $50, try ebay or Tirerack or search for Hawk Dustless pads and make the next owner very happy

    Re: Front Brake Job

    Thanks Mick much appreciated. Got them from Tirerack and
    they work great. Now I just have to figure out how to reset the sensor warning light. It didn't go out after I replaced the pads and sensors. Back brakes were fine and the sensors were not touched....Did you have any problems with the sensor light staying on?

    Thanks again!
    Paul
