    Rear brake caliper

    Someone had posted about this quite sometime ago but I cannot see any replies? So just asking again if any one else has the same issue?

    I have a 2016 Crossrunner and today I was cleaning the chain and noticed that the rear caliper moved a little? Not loose disc and wheel tight just slight movement on the caliper. Is this normal?

    Regards

    When you wrote moved you mean the mounting of the caliper has bent?

    The rear brake caliper housing should be firmly fixed and not move at all, Basil.

    OK quick update on the 2016 Crossrunner rear brake caliper.

    Just popped it round to my local service guy and he checked it out and basically it's normal movement as it's a floating caliper. So seems to be right.

    No worries Corri, it's difficult sometimes to picture what the question is referring too.  :031:
