Changed the rear disks and pads today and the pistons were a nightmare to get back in, I had the correct tool for the job.

Anyway put it all back together went for a drive and it was all fine.

Went out later and the rear disk started smoking because it had seized.

Stripped it down again and pushed the calliper in and out a few times with a bit of wd40 and all seems well for now.

I'm just worried its going to happen again when im not there and cause some serious damage.

Calipers cost a fortune for these, is it worth trying to get a returb kit?

local motor factors do em for 80 if i exchange my old one. Seems reasonable.

Not worth the aggro if I'm honest as you need to break it down clean replace seals etc etc and it you don't do it properly then it can seize again or worse still pop a seal and you will loose fluid resulting in massively reduced braking performance. £80 form you local motor factors is a good price, order it while it's on its way take yours off and drop it straight in when you collect your new one :thumb:

Dealers sell a seal kit for rear calipers if you fancy doing a diy refurb.

Note you should not use wd40 on any part of the brake where it may come in contact with brake seals/dust covers as it will cause them to swell and make issue worse
