I did not know that. Having seen the mechanic do it, it's an easy job to do myself. 


Having said that, I'm selling the car soon 20mpg is not sensible despite being able to claim for mileage

Hi Damian,

Should really replace these as pairs, the other one is likely to be
less efficient causing your braking to be uneven across that axel.

Still good service.

I was near a hotel so the mechanic suggested grabbing a coffee and he went off to get a new calliper and fitted it all within 2 hours. Total cost to me was £116. Considering the Brake Calliper itself would have cost £104 he saved me a ton of labour costs had he just towed me back to a garage
