    I'm fairly confident that this procedure works for 2016 Golf R: http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...AU)_ABS_Brakes

    As for the CC, maybe post the auto-scan so we can see how the car is equipped?

    Just release the electronic handbrake to retract the pads from the disc. The cylinder itself then is pressed inside using brake caliber tool which turns and at the same time pushes the cylinder inside.
    It does not need vcds for the procedure or any other witchcraft
