Partially Seized Calipers
Spider failed the MOT on handbrake efficiency. I took the offside off today to have a look and I could not fully wind in the piston (I had bought new pads).
A new pair of callipers are about £160-£200 whereas the refurb. kits are somewhat cheaper. I have looked at a few online but Brakes International are pretty for either new or refurb. kit good and almost on my doorstep so I can just go and pick the parts up.
Anyway I have put it back together for now and am considering either a pair of new callipers or a refurbish kit, new piston and seals and what experiences and thoughts folks have on the kits?
Priorities I find, are usually someone else's.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
