Need caliper piston seal part numbers

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a sticking piston in my RF caliper on my 2001 Boxster S. I found caliper seal kits, but they only contain the dust seals - not the piston seals. I've seen references to people replacing the piston seals. Can anyone tell me where I can find caliper rebuild kits - or caliper seals?

Looks like the pistons are two different sizes in the caliper.

Thanks.

Thanks much for the quick response, Catman. I do see Brembo Piston Pressure seals on the

hrpworld site. I'll contact those folks tomorrow.

Cheers,

Porsche or Brembo will not sell you the inner seals. Zeckhausen sells the complete kit or you can just get the inner seals from them. Shipping is quick and price is reasonable. You need 40 & 36mm for the front and 30 & 28mm for the rear.

Thanks much for the reply, ekam. I did confirm the 36/40mm front piston sizes from Zeckhausen, and got the seals.

I had my local mechanic install them as part of a caliper rebuild and new front brakes. Ready for a DE at the

local track. :rolleyes:

Thanks to all for your help,
