    Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set):

    Bought these pads for my '04 Passat. The picture showed it coming with replacement bolts and pin boots. The service manual requires replacement of those bolts. The pads came with those u-shaped steel clips which are not used on the B5 Passat.

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set):

      Set includes four identical pads (inside/outside pair for both driver and passenger side rear disc brakes), replacement mounting bolts with rubber sleeves and anti-squeal paste. Pads are an exact fit for VW Part # 1J0-698-451-R.
      Response to RangerGuy, who mentioned this set did not include wear sensors for his 2003 Jetta: The wear sensor is only located on the driver side inside front brake pad. This is a rear pad set.

          Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set):

          Purchased these for 2003 VW Jetta. They do not contain the wear sensor needed in the driver side front brakes. The wear sensor is nothing more than a looped piece of braded wire embeded ito one of the shoe's, which upon wearing to the point of replacement the wire loop is worn down opening the circuit alerting the driver of worn brake pads.
          Honestly do not understand how they can avertise them as an "Exact Fit" for the above mentioned car, being the wear sensor is not there?

            • Q:

              The picture for this kit shows caliper bolts and boots. Neither came with this kit, which had unneeded rattle clips instead. How do I get the parts pictured? (The picture of the pads themselves is accurate.)

              These bolts are SUPPOSED to be replaced when replacing the pads, so they really should have been in the kit. (You can re-use the existing bolts, but it's better to install new ones.)

                Hi SirWired, I'm glad to assist you. It is always recommended to replace the necessary hardwares along with the Brake Pads. The images listed on our website are for representation purpose only and the original product may differ from the represented image. This Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Rear (4-Pad Set) (Part No. PXD340AH) does not include caliper bolts and boots. However, I can understand the confusion in regards to the image displayed, we will pass your comments along. I would recommend you to visit the nearest store to purchase the necessary hardwares for you to complete your brake job.

            • Q:

              What is the weight of a single pad and the weight of the overall package. Please do not only answer one part of my question.
              What are the dimensions or part number of the hardware associated.
              And finally is this an OEM match or just a general replacement part for any vehicle that fits?
