    You can strip them and rebuild, but recon calipers arent that expensive.

    I put two new calipers on my old FWD, and they were just over 50quid each.

    DIY rebuild may not work too well. Once they have seized they will be prone to it again shortly in my experience and if you think of the cost to get them reconditioned you might as well just replace instead.
