Smart Fortwo 451 Brake Caliper Rebuild

1 post in this topic



So I wanted to paint the brake calipers on my smart and though: while I'm taking it apart why not change the seals and make it like new.

I removed the piston, I removed the inner seal but there was no way I could remove the dust seal.


It appears the dust seal is glued to the caliper. Is it? Or does it have some sort of ring holding it in place (I noticed some models have that)? If it does have a ring its pretty well hidden because I cannot find it.


I ended up tearing the seal but now I'm facing the issue, I have to remove it all bit by bit to be able to put in the new one.


Did any of you attempt to rebuild the brake caliper? How did you remove the dust seal?


Thank you.
