Brakes staying engaged

Asked by Jun 20, 2017 at 02:26 PM about the 2010 Volkswagen GTI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had new rear brakes put on my 2010 VW GTI. Now the brakes stay compressed so much that it is heating up the rear wheel. Almost like the emergency brake is on but it is not. Did not have this problem before the brakes were put on. What could cause this?

1 Answer


Yeah, definitely something wrong with the install.
