Brake calliper seals

Had to renew front brake calliper pistons (bores are fine). Clearly sensible to replace seals at the same time. MX5Parts were out of stock so went to local Mazda dealership. “Mazda doesn’t supply seals. You need to buy new callipers.” Went to Europarts: “Sorry. We used to stock replacement seals years ago. You will have to buy a new calliper.” Ordered a set of seals from EBay.
What’s going on?

  1. My model of MX-5 is: __NC3
  2. I’m based near: __Portsmouth
  3. I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: _

Mechanics don’t bother. Its easier and quicker for them to replace the whole thing so to the customer (if you include labor) its cheaper to replace.

Nobody works on their cars anymore… thats why.

Figures. :woozy_face:
