I think all you need is some 13mm wrenches and lots and lots of WD-40. I don't remember the size exactly but is either 13 or 15, I'm almost sure is 13.

I also recommend that if you are planning on ordering the parts prior to removing the old parts that you measure the size of the rotors since there can be several different sizes (measured in mm) for your car's rotors (this is a fact I learned the hard way). Also, the pads can also be several difference models so in all I recommend that you remove the parts prior to ordering the replacements to ensure that you receive the exact size you need so it reduces your frustrations and trips to the auto parts store.

Also, I recommend that you have on hand a breaker bar, C-clamp to push the piston back into the Caliper (unless you invest about $65 in a brake tool to do this) and a metal coat hanger (I use it to hold up the caliper so it's not hanging by the rubber brake hose).

Good luck!

While checking never hurts, all B6 A4 1.8T rotors are the same size. The caliper bolts are 21mm (13/16") and a 13mm wrench takes them apart.

You need to get the caliper tool, that can be rented for free at Advanced/Autozone. Obviously some other tools might be needed but those are the basics.

Tip: When you remove the calipers and want to get the rotor off... tap it once with a BIG metal mallot/hammer... it will be on the ground instantly.

Here are the three sizes of brake rotors for a B6:

B6 Audi A4 02-05 1.8T/V6 FWD/Quattro 5x112

Part Number Description
8D0 698 301 JD Front rotors drilled and slotted 312 x 25 mm*
8D0 698 301 JS Front rotors slotted 312 x 25 mm*

* Check rotor size before ordering. Some models are equipped with 288mm or 345mm rotors.

I hope this helps.
