Caliper guide pin gaiter

Post by froggy »

Hi, I need to replace the guide pin gaiter on my S2 Xantia. Can I replace the gaiter in situ or will I need to remove the caliper? Thanks in advance Terry.

how do you get the new gaiter back into the caliper ? I am a bit worried about damaging the new gaiter if I try and drive it home with a hammer and piece of wood! thanks Terry.

Once all cleaned up it should be a fairly easy press fit Terry... Strong fingers should do it...
