Re: rx4 seized calliper?

Best way is to jack each wheel up and see if one is hard to turn.

Depends what part of the caliper has siezed as to what is fixable.

Everything but a siezed piston is fairly easily fixable and just requires stripping and cleaning.

It could even be that the handbrake is sticking on.

Youd have to check prices on the internet once you work out what you need.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
