I think the Audi I helped my friend to do had the left hand thread on one side, do VW have the same ?

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.

Done them this evening, both clockwise found it easier to whip caliper off and wind them back held in vice.
