Re: Help !!!!!

What is wrong with it? I guess it is probably leaking in some way. There are places on the net that sell recons/exchanges .... is one. Haven't used them myself ... simply the result of several google searches!

Re: Help !!!!!

I used Speedways for a pair of recon calipers. The calipers are old bodies rebuilt with completely new internals.

They acid dip and re-coat the caliper body so it's effectively a brand new caliper.

You have to send them your old one back within 2 weeks of receiving the new one, so you're not off the road waiting for the part to arrive, though delivery only took 2 days.

It doesn't matter how bad yoyr caliper is, so long as it's not fractured or has lumps missing from the casing. Rust, paint or any cosmetic imperfections don't matter.

Their rear calipers are about £100+VAT each.
