The Canadian folk are not allowed to order from the SnapOn website? There might be a bit of customs duty collected - but it would be a percentage of the price. I'd imagine in CD$ - with the exchange rate - these would cost them about $50. Least expensive shipping to Canada is typically US-Mail.

I would have thought the same, but after creating an account with a Canadian address, the part mysteriously jumped to nearly 100 dollars, and that was before shipping and duty. I tried a bunch of addresses to validate, but it is an obscene markup for a Canadian address

Have any friends in the US? Order it and have it shipped to them, then they ship it to you. Easy.

This was pretty quick and easy, especially if you have done brake pad replacements in the past. All the posts here were extremely helpful. Thanks to all!

I made the tool T10439 out of an aluminum rod from Home Depot (mentioned elsewhere in the forum) for under $10. Basically cut the rod in half and wrapped it in electric tape to keep the caliper from sliding. Worked well, although it doesn't make it easy to get to the pads or clean and install new ones. I found the simple coat hanger routine was pretty effective and there was enough slack to allow for this. Using the coat hanger method you can move the caliper more freely to clean the inside of the caliper and remove the pads.

Didn't need anything special to compress the pistons, just simply push them in before you remove the calipers and the old pads. This worked absolutely fine and slipping the new pads and the caliper back onto the rotor was a breeze.

I don't know about everyone else, but finding the right brake pads and associated parts was really tricky for me given the type of Cayenne you have. For my base Cayenne this is what I got:
Retaining clips
Rock Auto https://www.rockauto.com
CENTRIC 11737013 (117.37013) $7

Front Brake Pads
EBay
Mintex Part No. MDB3157 / 7P6698151B $100

Tools for Front pads on Base 958 Cayenne (Mentioned before just including where they are used)
T30 torx bit: Upper Brake Line Guide Removal
T40 torx bit: Lower Brake Line Guide Removal
M14 triple square: Caliper Bolts
Big Flat Head Screwdriver: Push pads back so pistons on caliper go back in
Coat Hanger or VW tool T10439 to hold caliper
Torque Wrench (Caliper Bolts to 104 ft lbs)
