Re: Brake caliper.

If I was to clean the piston is there anything I need to know before I start or is it a case of ordering a kit and getting stuck in.

Brake caliper.

My front caliper is sticking on slightly,there is a slight noise which goes off after about five miles if I don't touch the brakes.I am wondering would it be best to buy a new caliper or fit a service kit.
Cheers
