Having discovered a completely sticking handbrake, I decided to get the old rear Brembo callipers off the back end of the VX and get them looked at.
I settled on BCS in Long Eaton and they were completely brilliant from start to finish. They provided a very reasonable and detailed quote and their communications throughout were superb – particularly from Katie and Marc.
I sent the callipers to them and received communications to confirm they had arrived and were being examined. Following this they were completely stripped, parts replaced, cleaned, painted and tested.
Being a VX the refurb was never going to be a simple process and the tiny grub screw didn’t pass muster and needed to be machined from scratch.
Again, BCS were superb and had these built and I got the callipers back as soon as these were done and QC had been passed.
I wish I could post pictures as they look absolutely ‘as new’, came back with new rubbers, sliders, seals, pistons, springs and bleed nipples. They were painted in a dark grey/silver paint – although I was offered various other finish options I opted for the ‘standard’ look.
They work perfectly and were a very cost-efficient way of ensuring I had working rear brakes and a decent hand brake.
If you need this, I completely recommend them. You can find them here: https://www.bcs-automotive.co.uk/
DM me if you want to see the pictures, happy to send these, failing that they are on my twitter feed @jayton1973 .
