I managed (by carefully watching PMB video on porsche caliper restoration) to remove the adjuster mechanism from the inside of the pistons. I'll post pics when I'll have time to give a closer look and understand how it works.

That spacer does not belong there in place of the spring.

Does anyone have the pics of the first few posts? Very valuable info, but without pictures it is harder to understand

Looks like I was smart and saved it off as a pdf years ago, I think this should have what you want.

Smile wiper seal

There's a few questions that will come up here so let me answer them; Eric, shouldn't I take that handbrake arm out? Well... no, not unless you're having a problem with it. A problem woud be a buldging wiper seal (from too much brake cleaner etc.) or if it's currently sticking or hard to move. That would mean there's some rust in the wiper seal area. The arm does not have anything to do with the fluid integrity in your caliper, the seal on the inner adjuster does that job. The seal on the arm is just a wiper seal. If it's working OK the plating process won't harm it. If not, kits are fairly expensive at $39.00 but... we have them. Eric, how do I remove the arm if I deem necessary? I like to cut the welch plug with a Dremel and a carbide blade. ONLY cut the plug and not further as you'll dig into the arm. Once you cut/notch it then stick a large flat blade screwdriver in the plug and mangle it out. There's a clip in there. Remove that and the arm will slide out.

*IMPORTANT* Before you leave your calipers off at your plater, let them know that the cable attachment pieces in the handbrake arm are potmetal. I actually tied warning labels on both of these to let them know. They will then babysit them in the acid path so as not to ruin the potmetal.


Hello Eric, where can i find the wiper seal i need about 50 of these?
