320d seized rear braker caliper!!!
Hi hope theres anyone out there that can help!! i went on holiday for 3 weeks left my car (2001 320d 4 door) parked on the drive. when i got back , tried to reverse of the drive. the motor wont budge, the nearside rear caliper seized . Tried allsorts to free it, force driving to certain extent ( still didnt budge ) hitting the caliper lightly with a hammer, using wd40 etc . still not freeing itself. wondered is this a common fault? looks like i'l have to get the caliper stripped . does anyone know if i'l need a new 1 or can the old one be reused... also is there a winding tool required for them i heard.
any help much appreciated!!
