Title: Need a rear caliper
Post by: cb500t on March 22, 2013, 02:02:22 pm
As it says above I need a replacement rear caliper,I imagine they are a fearsome price from a dealer,are Corsa ones the same? as they are cheap and available..

They come up on that auction site. You could post a wanted ad in our Classifieds.

278 quid from Abarth, there is a bosch equivalent which is common to the corsa, don't know if that extends to the red finish but a quick google around suggests there are savings to be made :thumb:

whats wrong with a proper red abarth one anyway, less hassle than painting a nearly right one and you know it will fit

just out of interest, why do you need it? did the bleed nipple break? :thumb:

If you are struggling, try giving Brakes International a call.  I haven't used them for a while, but they used to sell decent quality recons.
