I did my jetta brakes many times, but I dont recall the bolt lengths. Ensure you have adequate engagement into nut. The dealer can supply you with the proper bolt for about 4 bucks.

1. Remove the brake hose to caliper bolt from the brake caliper. 2. Remove the brake hose from the brake caliper. 3. Remove and discard the 2 copper brake hose gaskets. These gaskets may be stuck to the brake caliper and/or the brake hose end. 4. Cap or plug the opening in the brake caliper and the brake hose to prevent fluid loss and contamination. 5. Remove the 2 brake caliper pin bolts. Remove the park brake cable from the caliper. 6. Remove the brake caliper from the brake caliper bracket.

you need a special caliper tool that turns the piston as it pushes it in, or if you are on a tight budget grab a wrench and a regular caliper compressor and turn the caliper clockwise as you tighten the tool (or ask someone for help, easier with 2 people) hope this helps.

A brake caliper will squeeze your brake pads in your car against the brake rotor surface allowing it to stop or slow your vehicle down. The brake caliper is clamped on the rotor.

Remove the cap from the brake reservoir under the hood (careful, that stuff wrecks paint), and use a C-clamp with the old pad to distribute weight.

looks like you need to bleed your brakes they most likely have air in them and bleeding them should fix this

It would be more cost effective to replace the brake caliper. If you repair the brake caliper it will cost you more in the long run.

A caliper brake is a form of brake as used on bicycles in which a pair of arms with brake pads move inwards and press on the rim of the wheel.

if its on a car or truck (brake caliper) it is how the emergency brake works, usually on the rear, it has a cable that turns the cylinder inside the caliper

brake caliper bushings are the rubber mounts that sit inside the caliper bolt holes. They help guide the bolts when bolting the caliper up to the caliper bracket.

Look at the thing behind your wheel on top of brake rotor with brake pads in it-that's a caliper.

To replace a faulty brake caliper with a new caliper or a rebuilt caliper and assuming that is all it needs, a garage would probably charge you one hour of labor plus the cost of the caliper and brake fluid. Call your local auto parts store to get a quote on the brake caliper.

Remove wheel, remove the bolt holding brake hose to the caliper, remove the two pins that hold the caliper to the caliper bracket using a 3/8" allen wrench, remove caliper. Inspect brake pads and brake hose for damage, replace if necessary. Install new brake caliper in reverse order. Bleed system.
