Another older owner

Hi all! Just thought I'd help raise the average age a lttle. Who said own an Alfa before you die? We'll see if a ten-year-old 156 2.5 jtd Sportwagon accelerates the demise of this pensioner!
I work part-time at Beaulieu where we had, until recently a gorgeous 1930 6c Testafista; and for the bank holiday we hosted the superb new 8c; what a sound! Anyway I'm sure to be ferreting around the threads as more bits fail on the car!.

Hello and Welcome to AO

You are probably the luckiest fella on here, working a Beaulieu is a dream job for any petrolhead

Hey! thanks for all the 'welcome' messages!
So, now the sting....
on my 156 2.4 jtd I have a seized rear caliper piston, (or seized enough to render the handbrake u/s on that side. ) i've ordered discs and pads as the discs look ready for renewal. Should I anticipate any major problems dismantling and, more importantly getting that piston freed up?
