advice on caliper overhaul kits needed

Post by johntl » Sat Apr 14, 2018 9:55 pm

I have a 2001 hdi 110 saloon , its done 165k
Its time I got the calipers all round overhauled , as I 'm getting sick of the squeeling, rubbing sounds around the car.
Does anybody know of a good place to get overhaul kits from including the pistons, sliders etc, also looking on the interweb there seems to be 2 types which could be fitted to my car ??? ATE and ?????
Any advice much appreciated
price of remanufactured calipers seems high !!

I bought a new set some years ago - cost £75 for the pair - I just put some plastilube under the sheathes to keep the sliders from sticking 8)

I couldn't find any prices on the site Steve posted about, maybe because I'm using my phone....

I think the overhaul kit was about 25 quid, with all the seals and rubbers etc for 2 callipers

That's a good price.
Truthfully I fitted the new ones, then got the old ones sliding thanks to a hammer and a vice, then lubed them up and sold them on 8)
