Jaguar XK & XKR Brake Calipers
Common problems in the Alcon XKR brakes include seized pistons due to the plated material they are made from and the thin cast which holds the wiper seal in place cracking and sometimes breaking away completely. These calipers can suffer corrosion on the raised bare aluminium logo. The other two variants fitted to the XK & XKR are usually made by either Ate or Brembo, these don’t really have many common problems, other than nipples seizing on the Brembo calipers.
