That makes the job easier for you....there's not as many parts

However the handbrake lever part of the caliper is often seized or tight in operation which leads to poor handbrake performance. Sometimes these can be partially freed off but they just end up seizing again.

You may be looking at reconditioned calipers.


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.
