Appears to be front calipers for sale currently and not the ZS180 spec type either.

https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID003117

Only one side of the ZS180 rear caliper seems to be available.

https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID003121

ZS180/ZR160 rear calipers, new, are more than twice the price than the standard caliper used across the range. Keen price at £90 a side via the link below, but beware the £30 a side surcharge. so thats £240 quid for the calipers alone.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REAR-BRAKE-C ... 3641.l6368

Now if £240 doesn't turn you on, you could refurb them, but Rimmers don't appear to have any kits in stock, but ebay does at £28 a side.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-MG-ZS- ... SwGUBaPWro

So say you don't want to pay the £240 and you don't want to refurb. You cold buy a used caliper, but expect to be buying a pair as obv they are sold as an upgrade most of the time and often with carriers, which you don't need.

Giving up on ZS180 spec entirely, you could downgrade to the standard basic 200/25/ZR caliper which are much more common and cheaper. However you will need the carriers and discs as well. The carriers will be common and cheap enough to obtain and so with the calipers, at least one side is £50 on Rimmers, you could find the other side on ebay new for around the same money with some shopping around.

I have a pair of 180 rear calipers and carriers

However

One of the calipers doesn’t “spring back” when you manually twist the handbrake bolt from above, couldn’t get a definite answer as to what the issue is with it so gave up

Unless anyone has any clues

Many thanks baz
