Thanks for the offer, but I actually need the whole caliper. Mine is leaking and Shimano don't sell caliper seals - how ridiculous is that?!

Sorry can't help - but don't throw the caliper away, seemingly the front ones are quite easy to get hold of but the rear ones not so & you could just swap the seals if that is all that is gone.

The rarity of the rear calipers has nothing to do with using rear calipers both front & rear with 180/160 discs of course :wink:

Can you point me in the direction of a front caliper, please?

I have stripped, cleaned and re-built the rear caliper with the existing seals. I conducted a 24 pressure test (bungee wrapped tightly around the brake lever) and there was no leaking, I hope there was simply some gunge between the seal and piston. I would like some spares though!

Ah! someone sent me a link to a shop selling them NOS complete with disc the last time I asked that question, not sure if I'll be able to find the link now :oops:
