Re: 200q siezed caliper


I had a similar problem on my '83 Ur-Q.  I was able to disassemble and
rebuild the caliper and handbrake mechanism, and I am no mechanic.  However,
I was fortunate that I caught the corrosion in the piston sufficiently

Good luck.

+AD4-parking brake on right rear wheel
+AD4-not working.  dealer says caliber
+AD4-seized and a very expensive new
+AD4-one required.
+AD4-car sat for 6 months before I bought
+AD4-it, and think that likely reason it
+AD4-anyway to free this up without a
+AD4-new caliper?
