    Leaky Piston - XTR BR-M975

    Hi,

    I just posted a positive review on these brakes and now after a year on them the pistons are leaking fluid! I had no stopping power and the pads were squealing.

    When I got home, I stripped the pads out, cleaned and baked them and then cleaned and bled the brake system. One piston is sticky and the other is leaking a little fluid.

    I guess I need to replace the seals. Does anyone know the part number and where I can find the kit?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ken

    Shimano does not sell rebuild kits. Have a shop send it back.

    Thanks for the info on that. Too bad they don't sell the kit.
