Re: RX4 Rear Calipers

If it's leaking fluid through the handbrake mechanism the small O-ring seal inside the caliper must be letting fluid by.

You can get full caliper overhaul kits to repair handbrake calipers but it's quite a fiddly job and specialist tools are often needed.

I think your best bet is either a 2nd hand or reconditioned caliper.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
