Lightbulb Advice on overhauling brake calipers

Hi guys,

Has anyone experience with overhauling calipers? The ones that are stamped as BMW.

When servicing the calipers I noticed that the pistons where stuck. After cleaining them, they moved one time en got stuck again.

Now I'm thinking of overhauling them. BMW has a repair kit available. I also have a Clymer manual with me which describes the overhauling proces.

The manual says that the dealer has to do the bleeding of the brake circuit. Are there people who have done that by themselves?

Any advice would be welcome.

Greetings from the Netherlands!

Re: Advice on overhauling brake calipers At the top of the point to service.Then it will come up Maint/repair videos, click on that. In subcategories,Click on Kbikes. Page down to Integrated ABS brake flush DIY. It walks you through the whole brake bleed. You do have Integrated brakes right?
