86 300 Sl Brake Calipers

I have an 86 300 Sl Euro. I need a passenger side rear brake caliper. IN all the searchs on parts websites none list a 300 Sl that year. Just a 560 SL. Is the rear brake calipers on a 86 560 Sl teh came as a 300 SL. If not what do i look for when ordering chassis parts.

Thanks

Subscribe to EPC online. Its free for US residents about $10 elsewhere. They will ask you for a credit card number but they wont charge US residents.

I have the same car. You can use the same calipers used on a Euro 280 SL, which was officially imported to the US, but not the 300 SL. There is no part supplier in the US who can supply you with any part for a Euro 300 SL. I had good luck with Cardone, who rebuilds calipers. Take your old caliper off and look for the part number and call them. A lot of parts are the same like on other 107's, except for engine parts. I hope that helps.

Use the EPC as Roncallo suggested. It lists the 300SL and you will obtain the proper part number. The 280SL was only imported as grey market with various US modifications depending upon who did the mods.
