I got them on my car, taken the wheels off a few times since they have been fitted and they still look like new.
Got mine from ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370774471039?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Thanks for the help, I decided to just buy a new caliper. Got brand new one for £75 so don't think its to bad, can always refurb the old one and sell it on later as there was no surcharge.
Next question, would I be able to get away with just bleeding the new caliper or should the whole system...
I have been changing all of the brake discs and pads on my car and everything was going smoothly, fronts were no problem and everything came out with little effort.
Rears were a different matter, the bolts holding the calliper carrier were a nightmare to remove but got them off in the end...
My car is coming upto 8 years old and still on original spark plugs, sure its based on mileage not age. Might be time to change them regardless now but car drives fine.
Oil is changed every year as per the service schedule, gearbox oil is changed every 2 years for my own peace of mind.
I ordered front / back discs and pads thinking I was buying Brembo all around and when they arrived the rear discs are a brand I have never heard of before, OPTIMAL. On googling them its very hard to find any information, all I know is they are a German company.
Anyone know much about this...
No idea about the gap but regarding the corrosion I think all are the same, rust protection is very poorly done if at all from the factory just painted.
When I had my MOT I was advised to get my radiator subframe and suspension component's protected before they completely rot, been looking into...
When you order a new key for your car they have to put in the VIN number of the car, I was told that all keys that are ordered are locked to that VIN and when you go to program the key with CLIP it will only let you program the key if the VIN matches.
I have no idea if there is a way around it...
I would say it would be the foam weather seal that covers the inside skin of the door, if the foam has been cut to gain access to the exterior handle then that would be a likely cause.
Just have to remove the door card to check, there is a guide on how to do this here
£400 to replace the pressure switch wow. I would say its about an hours job if that, front bumper needs to come off granted but £400 no chance.
iirc the switch should be £85 + say another £100 to replace it, £185.
