    Default Brake caliper slider bolts

    Are the caliper slider bolts the 7mm allen key ones?

    Ive ben advised they should be kepted greased to avoid seazing and brakes binding.

    Thanks

    And if the rears you're doing remove the rubber that the slides sit in and clean any corrosion out. The calipers corrode which swells the rubber around the slides

    There's a vx kit to redo the sliders. Not sure of part number tho.

    Def get them greased. Both mine seized. Got told as pads and discs were both running low, sliders fully extended and much more Lilly to happen.
    New calipers done now

    White lithium grease, marine grease or red rubber grease is better than using copper slip.

    IIRC Vx recommend that lithium grease is used.
