Anyone in Lees Summit have the tools or knowhow to do the rear brakes on a 99 VW New Beetle?

I have been on the wear bars dor a while and really need to get his done
Thanks in advance, I am off tonight, and it should not take more than an about an hour. Rotors and pads. When I did the fronts I recall I needed some hex drive ratchet things

we're playing mechanic on monday morning if you're over in this neck of the woods (and havent gotten them replaced yet) :)

not sure if I've got all the tools for sure, but we could at least give it a shot

We got a whole mess of little projects to do on my RS so probably headed over there shortly after 8. Come on over, the more the merrier.

Nah, I got rear ended. Damned looky-lous were watching ANOTHER accident on the right shoulder and and did not want to stop in time. Totalled all to hell the guy that hit me; but, my VW has some rear floor pan damage. It was drivable but moved the suspension, and his insurance is paying so I had it towed to the body shop. Might be totalled

:shock: I thought you had a Civic not a Beetle? You are going through cars pretty fast nowadays since you sold the bandaid mobile :P

Glad you are ok though and hope that the car is totaled so you can get a new Suby 8)
