[Brakes] LUCAS front CALIPER
#1
Hi all, my 2002 Berlingo Multispace 1.4 has front Lucas calipers, solid discs. One caliper is getting sticky - have cleaned it all, pads out  & pushed piston back, but still rubbing after a few miles. Can anyone point me at a new replacement - I can find plenty of Bosch, but not Lucas!
Cheers.

Can you not get an exchange unit from a local Motor Factors ?

Possibly not a stock item but they should be able to supply the same day if you ask early enough or the next morning if not, mine operates this way - local Factors will supply the garage trade on a daily basis so it isn't an uncommon thing.

Years ago I'd buy new seals and refit but these days I'm more lazy.

Maybe try your vin number in http://www.catcar.info - change the language to English and drill down to your brakes, the part number of the calipers and the details of what make etc should be there. Once you have the correct part number, you should find them.

If eBay have nothing, try http://www.peugeotcitroendsparts.com and use the "contact us" link, to send your vin number / enquiry, and Mike will reply with the correct part and a price. All genuine PSA parts.

Thanks lads,
I live in a very rural part of Ireland so the chance of finding someone capable of a quick turnaround on a refurb won't be a possibility, but I'll follow up all ideas!

I've now found a seal kit, so may go down the home rebuild route - as you say, I was looking at the lazy option!

If the piston is rusty (usually are outside the seal area) then you would always be better with a new caliper, and I would always do both sides to make sure braking is even - don't want pulled into a ditch in winter on a country road!

Go to that site I said ( http://www.peugeotcitroendsparts.com ) and send them your VIN number, tell them what you need, they will email straight back with the right parts & a price, I've bought loads of hard to get stuff from them, they are diamond mate.

Well lads,
I managed to get hold of 2 seal sets from a seller on Ebay called frentech-uk, suitable for Lucas front calipers - good quality, with all necessary greases and seals.  Pushed pistons out with compressed air, and they cleaned up very well, then heated the castings to ease out the bleed screws, which had corroded 'nut' faces. Filed the nut 'points' a little and then ran an 8mm die up the bleed screw, cutting a thread onto where the nut used to be. Turned an 8mm nut down to half thickness, ran this up to the 'new' thread and then welded the nut just below the nipple end, making sure that there was still a gap between the lower face of the nut and the caliper casting.  This was to be certain that the cone face of the bleed screw would be fully set against the casting when done up. I can now use a 13mm spanner to bleed the brakes!
Cost was £18.00 to do both.
Much as it would have been far easier to buy replacement calipers and even just new bleed screws, it turned out to be an enjoyable bit of mending that has all gone back together well. (I hope!)  Wink

Nice one, now that's a proper fix. God I wish I had a lathe again.
