    is there a problem..no, not really..

    they are a windback caliper and they are subject to a lot of hamfisted pad fitteg with folks just trying to squeeze them back ruining the internal fine threads..a bit like the last vauxhall dealer that did the wheel bearing on mrs GSi's old vectra..to do this the have to remove the calipers..

    we got it back with a clean bill of health..only to find that the handbrake wasn't self adjusting..so back it went again to get that rectified..
