[Vwdiesel] Rabbit "High Caliper advice".

<<<As an aside, when servicing brakes, I like to clean
up the stampings on the pads.  I may also clean the
guide surfaces for the pads on the
caliper.  A light hit with a mill file is usually
adequate.  Cleaning the stampings helps assure smooth
fit of the pad.>>>

I have a tube of "Brake Grease". I think its just
hi-temp grease. When installing pads or shoes I
lightly coat all contact points with this grease. I
make sure the caliper retaining bolts are greased (as
they should be) as well. My brakes last so long that
the grease is gone by the time I replace them. In fact
about two years later I removed a caliper to tighten
the backing plate, the grease was gone.
