Hi Jaspa - I can understand your attempt to save money but from a safety viewpoint is it worth the chance. The other difficulty in buying from a scrappie is you don't know how long the donor vehicle has been lying around and the calipers could be sized as well. It's not just the piston part can seize but also the inner handbrake mechanism.
I appreciate new or recon units ain't cheap but for your safety and the safety of others - is the risk worth it?
