United Kingdom 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Java Black

You can just repair the caliper yourself. Most likely it's the sliding pins on the caliper. Fairly easy to replace, just got to ensure you fully clean all the muck out and add a bit of grease, but not to much that it suffers from suction. Even if the piston it is fairly easy to replace.

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Java Black

I'm not going to get involved in the debate about ex LR fitters as I'm sure there's both good and bad.

Good input from Mr K as usual. Thumbs Up

Personally I think the problem with seizing calipers is often caused by the brake fluid not being changed. Old fluid in the caliper attracts water because it is hygroscopic; then this starts a fatal combination of water, heat and corrosion leading to deterioration of the rubber seals and the previously smooth bore of the cylinders getting rough with corrosion.

Sadly I'm sure a lot of franchised dealers mechanics don't bother changing the fluid properly if at all. They don't have the skills to free off the bleed nipples and are scared of snapping them off so don't even bother trying. They don't admit this to the foreman of course and so the customer gets charged for something that hasn't been done. 2008 MY Java Black TDV8 HSE
