    Hi,

    My rear driver side brake caliper has seized on my 2005 cdti saloon. I am looking to buy a second hand one. There is I have found from a 2.4 accord. Will this be compatible with my car?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Provided they are from the saloon they will work.

    Why buy second hand and end up in the same situation in the not too distant future.

    It may be cheaper initially, but the total outlay to fix it twice will be more.

    I just bought two reconditioned Nissin calipers from these guys on ebay.

    Have to say their customer service was second to none after they sent out the wrong items to begin with (apparently my tourer comes up as a saloon on the DVA system)

    That seems like a decent option. So they provide a reconditioned caliper?
    Will this one fit my car:

    I have sent a question to them to confirm.

    Is there a guide on here on how to fit it? I will need to replace my brake pads and discs at the same time as the current caliper is seized at the moment.

    I have just fixed my guide and embedded all the pictures rather than URL.

    Got some recon ones from eurocarparts & they were a very reasonable price, now fitted & working great, have made MPG's miles better so I'm well happy.

    They will want the old ones you take off but get money back on them so all good :Smile:

    Good to hear your brakes are sorted and that the MPG is back up again. :Thumbup:
