    Default Rear Brake Calipers ?

    A bit of a long shot but would anyone happen to know the part numbers for our painted rear calipers or know where I could get hold of the numbers ?

    My R/N/S has seized up and I'm in need of a replacement.

    Have you tried cleaning the piston probably rusted.

    I've had it looked at by Opel as I was on holiday when it needed new pads on the back, after charging me around 300 euros they claimed to have stripped the caliper down and cleaned the piston up a bit but it hasn't made a difference it's still dragging on the rotor enough for you to feel the heat off the disc once you've parked up.

    I was hoping I'd be able to save a bit of money by finding the part online somewhere as the replacement quote of 1000 euros I got from Opel has me dreading what Vauxhall would charge

    Could that also be caused by the handbrake? Not sure, but isn't that part of the rotor assembly?

    Cheers for the help guys, in the end I found a second hand caliper on ebay for a much more reasonable price luckily. I got round to swapping them over this weekend to find that the rubber boot that sits round the old calipers piston was half torn and twisted round where I assume they tried winding the piston back to replace the pads, not impressed with their workmanship at all to be honest but what can you do haha
