    Default Caliper problem

    Hiya, I got a problem with my rear caliper, I think it been sticking cause i had a grinding noise from my breaks and when i looked 1 of my pads had totaly worn to nothing so iam in the middle of changing my pads but ive noticed the the rubber boot has split on the caliper, can i get another or will i have to buy a new caliper? Also what type of grease would i use. Thanks everyone.

    Grease? you mean for the break pads right?
    If yes..what you need is copper grease

    the caliper boots aren't avaliable seperately...and if the boot is split there's a change of water ingress into the caliper which can lead to the piston rusting..

    the best cure will be an exchange rear caliper

    You would be downgrading your rears if you fit them. You already have the 292's.
