Vented rear disks anyone?
I went down to the local dealer to pick up some rear pads for the wagon
the other day (the tire store said my pads and rotors needed to be re-
placed). I asked about the rear rotors, and the fiche showed that the
rotors were vented. I didn't recall seeing vented rotors last time I
looked, so I pulled the rear wheels off when I got home. After removing
the seriously overtightened lug bolts and verifying that the pads and
rotor were close to min specs (but otherwise OK) I was slightly disap-
pointed to find I had solid rotors.
But now I'm wondering ... Does anybody out there have vented rears on
their wagons? Is the brake caliper different for vented rotors? I have
ATE calipers with the 36 mm bore. Can these rotors be fitted on an ur-Q?
Any info much appreciated!
