    Default Rear brake pad carrier..stand alone??

    I have just been changing rear brake pads and one of the bolts into the pad carrier has been threaded and damaged the threads on the carrier. Obviously the garage who did the rear pads 2 years ago have messed up !! Can you buy the pad carrier as a separate item or would it be a whole new caliper?? Any thoughts on price??

    The carriers are available seperately mate, try your local dealership or Danboy at LMF in the morning and he'll get you the right part...

    Bolts are only a couple of quid, carrier not entirely sure mate. Calipers are about 70 ish so should be a lot lower than that...
