Hi,
Have you tried ECP? As they can normally supply rear brake calipers, IIRC approx. £70-80 brand new.

>>If the piston is siezed

It's far better to fit a new or reconditioned caliper. Once seized, there's a very good chance the piston is ruined.

I've just a had a quick trawl through ebay...
Yes, loads of front calipers knocking around but very few rear.

Of those listed, many seem to refer to the rear calipers as same for your C class as for E class 200-300 W124 bodies, and some SL's.


here's one;

hope this helps? (I have no connection with the seller tho, I just did a random search)
