you might as well go to quick fit, chances are you'll need a new caliper if it can't be freed off.  Or try Hi Q - Drouro Place, they are very good

Assuming you meant to type in Kwik Fit then I wouldn't touch them if they paid me!! :)

Never heard of Hi Q, will contact them and see what they can do.

Cheers.

Yes, Kwik Fit.  I was surprised, but they managed to free off the rear calliper on my Volvo 850 which had been seized for about a year, and I was just (slightly overcharged) charged for a new set of rear pads which was the only cost.  HiQ are very good.  What car is it and is it front or rear calliper?
Tony S
It's a Ford Focus 2003 and it's rear caliper.

are you trying to fit new pads yourself?  The pistons on these have to be wound in (clockwise?) in order to retract them, there's probably a special tool for the job.
Tony S
No.

When using pedal brake, it works fine. When using the handbrake, the brakes are not being applied. I checked and the cable is fine. It might be the handbrake mechanism within the caliper that is jammed.
