    Hello again!

    i am mid process in restoring an E36 and one of the callipers has seized.

    does anyone know anyone who can fix this and refurb all of them if I post them, mechanically and visually?

    If you have time, its an easy DIY and you can get a kit with new pistons for around £50.

    As stated above it a very easy diy. I actually find caliper refurb a very enjoyable job.

    some great DIY guides on YouTube too.

    If you really don’t want to go that route then again as already mention try Bigred http://www.biggred.co.uk/ and also BCS automotive https://www.bcs-automotive.co.uk/

    Try it yourself.

    I can elaborate if required. Get a vice abs work the piston a bit. Push the pistons out with compressed air carefully.

    it’s not a hard job to refurb them yourself
