Brake Caliper Repair Kit

Recommended Posts

hi,

im new and this is my first post, so here it goes.

recently i have been having trouble with my front offside brake,

under decompression it "clunks" and always seems to be on.

i removed the caliper to find that one of the pistons was seized, but on the seized piston the dust boot was torn (most likely the cause).

i have looked everywhere for a brake caliper repair kit, with no luck.

i was hoping one of you could point me in the right direction?

it seems a shame to have to replace the whole caliper just because of the seal and dust boot!

thanks,

Dale.

well, ive got it back on the road now.

lexus wanted £70 with delivery for the seals,

i could have got a caliper from a broker for £50!

but i found the kit on brakesint.co.uk for £26, with deliv.

very helpful, recommend anyone using them!
