    Default Brake caliper

    Have on my Vectra C 2004 2.0dti space wagon problems with the brakes behind. They hang on and get hot, and make sound while driving/braking. Sliders are completely fine. And the pads are new.

    What could be wrong? Do I need to replace the entire caliper or is it enough with a repair kit for calipere?

    i take it you mean the rear brakes

    it sounds like the caliper is sticking

    first thing to try is to remove the caliper and move the piston in and out to try and free it off

    if not its easier to just get a new caliper

    The rear brakes yes.

    When i use a caliper tool to put back the "stamp", it is no problem to get it back.
