Edgar. the plastic guides are indeed fragile. I did my calipers last year, and did so on the bench. I learned to not try to remove the steel springs ... I left them alone (having snapped off one on a front caliper). Having separated the two primary components of the rear calipers (hydraulic piston side and what I'd call the "frame") to bead-blast and paint, to reassemble I used a little synthetic grease on the areas where they contact, including on those plastic guides. I did all of this on the bench, and it's a tough process to describe, but with the proverbial patience and a clear mind, it can be done.

Please tell us where you're located, in case one of us is close by and could help. You may also try youtube ... I don't know if such a video exists, but it may. I frequently find solutions there.

Best of luck, and please follow up with your progress.

Kind wishes,'John

Sounds like it worked out ok.

BTW, welcome to our little community.Maybe show us your car ... tell us how long you’ve had it, what you’ve done so far, etc. That kind of sharing is what makes this such a great place to hang out.

Best wishes,
John
