    Default caliper piston rubber gator

    does anyone know if i can buy just a gator. the one on my rear caliper has perished. i dont really want to fork out on a whole caliper for the sake of a rubber. the car is a signum 06 plate.
    thanks in advance
    Paul

    Even if you did they are a pain to fit to a rear caliper with the handbrake built in.
    Re-conned calipers arent expensive either.

    He's only on about the outer gaitors that keeps the dirt out of the piston

    Yes you can but will need to buy a refurb kit off eBay which are about £14 ish
    Depending on what size brakes you have it may be better to get returned calipers from
    The dealers
