    I've got a 1991 minivan with a seized brake caliper. Does anyone know a source where and can get a caliper or know if there are calipers that are compatible?

    Try clicking the Big Link at the top of the page. :rolleyes:

    Edit: I see those look to be a bit pricey, going by the ones displayed... did you check?

    How froze up is it?

    I just rebuilt both front calipers about a month ago and bought kits from the link below. The kits were about $15 for each side and very simple to do. The trick is when you go to put the piston back in, lube up the rubber seals and then blow compressed air back through where the brake line attaches to expand the boot around the piston and it will slip right in.

    Great to see that link. I just had one lock up. I took the caliber off and using a "C" clamp and one of the pads pushed the piston back in. I'd then push the brake and repeat. I also blew air and some penetrating oil around it to try and knock out any junk. It's working fine now, but I'm sure a rebuild is in my future. I think I'll order the kits now.....
