I actually have to rebuild mine before the winter. Last time I did it, I could not get the rubber boots to seat and stay flush to the rear of the mount and they ride back, failing to cover and protect the piston as it turns outwards with pad ware. I suspect some sort of sealing compound is needed to fix it in place. Did you run into this issue, and if so, did you find a good resolution. I wonder if just a simple gasket seal would work well for this.

You need the BMW special tool to press on the dust boot.

Or...be innovative with what you can find in Home Depot. I found a drain cover (comes in black or green) that fits just nice. But you need to modify it in order to press it on. I have rebuilt two sets of 330 calipers. No problems whatsoever.

Nope. $200 + ship. Do a search. No one offers this price with NEW SEALS and NEW DUSTBOOTS.

Please do not low-ball. Thank you.

The dust boots and seal kit alone is $28 per side. So that's $56 in just those, never mind the cost of the calipers and guilds and pistons. If the piston moves in and out freely and will not seize, 200 for a good working rebuild is more than fair IMO.

Thanks for the plug-in, Drakon. Indeed, seals/dust boots are BMW OEM (from dealership). Calipers are tested after rebuild to be in full working condition.

Still for sale.

Update:

this sale does include anti-rattle clips and caliper bolt OEM rubber bushings.



Again, new dustboots. Pressure tested.
