If the caliper is not leaking fluid there is a temptation to assume it doesn't need attention.
However after big mileages the pistons will become 'sticky' in the bore. This results in the pads rubbing constantly even when the brakes are 'off'. Each successive set of new pads will wear faster than before. Caliper pistons must move freely.
These calipers may leak through the inbuilt handbrake mechanism because of corrosion and seal failure. Power Brakes can sleeve this critical bore and successfully restore these units.
Most broken bleeders can be removed and replaced thus saving the cost of replacing the caliper.
Most modern calipers, in which the seal is stationary, do not need sleeving. In this case it is the piston surface that needs to be without blemish. Corroded or marked caliper bores in which the seal moves with the piston should be sleeved.
Cost ultimately depends on how many pistons need replacing, due to wear or scoring. This can only be established after the caliper/s have been stripped and cleaned.We can only give you a best and worst case scenario based on how many new pistons might be needed.
Usually, one or more pistons need replacing per caliper and these generally range in cost from $30 - $60 each.
A phone call to us on (08) 8261 0888 or an email to: will help answer that one for you.
