Brake Calliper Refurbishment

97 5th Gen 2.2VTi

I have some problems with my rear brake callipers as they were sticking. I decided to have a go at fixing them myself and bought the seal kit.

I dismantled them fine and cleaned them up but had real problems getting them back together again.

Has anyone written a guide on brake callipers or attempted the job themselves? The car is off the road at the moment but would like to get it fixed.

Cheers

Tom

Re: Brake Calliper Refurbishment

What did you dismantle? the guides, the actual caliper and the piston itself? Usually when calipers stick it means they are on the way out. It's easier(easier said now lol) to replace the entire caliper instead of trying to fix it...usually...
