Default Rear caliper carrier install question?

I recently replaced the entire rear disc brakes on my mk4 golf. Included was the caliper carrier. The caliper carrier came with a pouch of grease. Am I supposed to grease the guide pins before installing the caliper on to the carrier? I figured the pins would be greased from the factory. I'm baffled.

Grease the guide pins.


You always pay for what you get. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
It is called dope because it does make you dumb.
Thinking outside the box is difficult for some. They're afraid they'll fall off the edge of the box and be lost to oblivion.
