Talking to a Sorento owner the other day and he was asking me if I'd had my calipers chaged?! He has an 05 model like mine and noticed whilst he was underneath it have a nose around, the inside face of every caliper was corroded real bad. Unlike the outer face thats a nice shiney gold colour. Anyway he drops it to the dealers and they have a look, phoned Kia UK up and his vehicle was kept in whilst they ordered in 4 new calipers and pads. What that was all about, he had no idea. Keep meaning to get under mine and have a good looj see what mine all like.

When you folks have painted them did you take them off the vehicle?

Or did you paint them while still bolted on?
