    Hi,

    Just taken me 52 plate S8 for new pads and been told that the rear calipers have seized!

    I'm wondering what the best way to go is - should I look at replacing the calipers and discs?
    Are any other models compatible with the A8/S8?

    There doesn't seem to be many of these cars about so was hoping that maybe the A6 stuff would fit!

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Paul Green.

    You went to a dealer or a backstreet garage ? The rear calipers pistons are on a worm like screw and needs to rotate and pushed clockwise at the same time. If you went to a backstreet garage and they forced the calipers then chances are that they might be dammaged !

    you might want to give A8 Parts a call. Chances are they'll have some in.

    If you're a member of the A8 Owners Club you also get free P&P in the UK :D
