ECS Tuning - New to the forums

Hello Audi-Forum members!

My name is Chris and I work at ECS Tuning. For those of you who don't know us, we specialize in ALL things VW, Audi and BMW related. I am our Audi specific employee and the forum liaison. If you need help with a part search, technical question, anything - PM me.

It will take me a few days to get my bearings on the new forum but I thought I'd start with a basic introduction. We offer everything from big brake and turbo kits down to nuts, bolts and oil changes. I'm here Monday through Friday so if you have a question - ASK!

Thank you for the welcomes. We are in Ohio, USA. We have great deals with our shippers to ship internationally. We can get things over-seas for a pretty good rate.

Hello Chris.

Trying to remove rear brake rotors (disks in the UK) on Q7. How do you back off foot brake shoes to get past rust ring? (Rotor has drum brake in center for foot brake)

Many thanks, Joe.

Joe,

Pardon the language barrier here, but it sounds like you are needing to back off the parking brake locking mechanism? This is tricky as you'll need to secure the car from rolling while you have it lifted with the parking brake off. Large bricks are usually good wheel chocks if you don't have access to a frame lift. Once it is lifted and locked into place from rolling, disengage the foot brake and you should be all set.

Welcome to you as well. I'm afraid we don't get many S8 cars around us so I'm not going to be much help with the technical aspects of the job. If it is like most other Audis I've worked on it shouldn't be too terrible. You may want to pop over to the A8/S8 specific forum and see if anyone with the same car has some insight for you.

Good luck!
