Replacing rear brake caliper seals
replacing brake caliper seals. Quite easy, including fitting the cyclinder back through the outer seal. 1-remove wheel 2-remove bolts holding caliper to the car so you can remove the caliper 3-test clamping the brake hose, so when you pop the cyclinder you don't loose all your brake oil. 4-unclamp brake hose and pop the cyclinder out using your brake pedal. 5-clamp brake hose to stop loosing oil 6-remove piston and cylinder seals 7-clean and check everything moves okay 8-replace seals (needs a little patience and care) 9-fit piston back into cylinder. required some skill and enginuity 10-replace lost oil, bleed brakes (not shown in this video) **** NOTE **** NEVER EVER use WD40 or other similar oils on silicon seals. This will make them swell up and maybe sieze/rip your seals. You could use it on old leaky seals, but never ever do this on the brakes of your car. If your seals are that bad, replace them. If you must use something, use engine oil, the approved grease, or spare brake fluid.
