Brake Change I have a 2002 2.0 Volkswagen Golf that i am going to replace the brake pads and rotors front and rear.  I am curious if there are any special tools i will need, and also, is there any special processes i will need to make sure i complete. (outside the ordinary) The rear calipers might be ceased up because i noticed the rotors are very rusty and it appears they might not be working correctly.

Brakes I turned in my car to change my brake pads but, after 2 months it needed to be changed again. This time they said I also need a new brake disc. How is it within 2 months I needed to replace the pads and disc when it took me three years to wear down the original brakes? Now again I need to replace both pads and disc. It also makes a knocking sound when the brakes is not engaged. What causes this? Is it something the mechanic did that's not right.
