OK - good mechanicing is not a race, but I had an hour of time in a boring conference call where I was just a listener, so I plugged earphones in and dashed outside.

My front left caliper locked up on me so I got two rebuilt ATE calipers from BAP GEON (in stock, local, 42 USD with 16 USD core) - you need to specify both wheel size and rotor size - mine were 280mm, 305 mm is the other option.

Well done!

You are lucky that the brake line came loose with what appears to be minimal pain. The lines are notorious for seizing in place.

Thanks Lee!

It's pretty easy to move it (14mm) while the caliper is firmly attached to the wheel - I've found once you remove it that job gets nasty.

I did leave out the pin removal picture, will edit

I did one of mine on my 04 the other week though its exactly the same. Almost exactly one hour from when I had my tools ready and started taking the wheels off. I got away with gravity bleeding it though, it just started pouring through after I took the lid off the reservoir so I just kept filling until a deciliter or two had run through :-)

Now if only Abscate would buy a brake lathe =)

I think Gochees has one in Delmar. It's a rare sight seeing someone carrying discs through a money and brains neighborhood on the way to the auto shop

lol, I did this over new years with a junkyard caliper. Once everything is cracked loose it goes very quickly. Something I will never understand is european calipers using allen head type bolts. My tool kit has 2 sided allen extension bits. The problem is that they are nearly 8 inches long which makes the (3/8" socket + adapter + the allen bit) a very tight fit. I definitely to invest in a couple of standalone allen sockets.

Why isn't this in the Repair Database? Who's in charge around here? :roll: :wink: Management, I'd like a complaint form please. I've got some writing to do.

There’s a slight subtle point here I should have explained better.

The caliper hose is attached hard to the caliper and then to the flexible hose attached to a bracket. The hose/hard line connection is the tough one to break, so what I do is crack the line at the caliperwhile mounted, unmount the caliper, then unscrew the hose by turning the caliper. If the hose is in good condition this saves a lot of hard work.
