I have just joined this community and am seriously frustrated with my Astra.
We have just had the front brakes replaced and the mechanic said that the N/S/F caliper thread has nearly snapped and should be replaced. He then said that this never breaks, however mine is about to break!!!
I have been quoted about £200 for the part alone!!
Can anyone tell me why this would break or how I may be able to get one cheaper? Also, I have notice you saying that the rear brakes are an issue and maybe a known problem by vauxhall - has anyone had the same issue as me with the caliper slide thread? For something that "never breaks" I want to know why mine has!
