    Are the calipers push-in? Or screw in? Are the caliper slides easy to replace?

    This is something I'm not to familiar with...however I read a right up by MooJohn (sp) he explained that the rear calipers get rusted out, sometimes leak too. Might want to check over both rears just to be safe. I had a break service done on my Continental back in 2016, pads and rotors. They had to grind down the caliper pins. All that did was give me a softer brake pedal feel. I believe a caliper replacement on Continentals are like any other car.

    Here is a link I found which may help to decide..: FYI-Inexpensive reman calipers

    Wish I could help you more. I'm not to good with brakes, even though its an easy job.

    Keep us posted
