    Default seized caliper ?

    noticed this morning the car felt as though the handbrake was partially on.when i got to work i felt the wheels and the rear n/s wheel was quite warm.i'm suspecting the caliper is sticking again as i've had a problem with this n/s before.i am trying to source a replacement caliper and there is one on ebay but it has come from a petrol car and mine is a 1.9cdti (150).i'm not sure if its the same part number as i cant access that section.the part number is 959 on the one on e bay,is this the same ??

    As long as it didnt come off a V6 or a 2.0 t then it will fit no probs. I fitted one from a cdti this weekend and mine is a 2.2 petrol, I had the same problem as you.
