x type rear brake calipers

Hi all,

i have a 2003 xtype diesel. The hard brake keeps seizing on. I've done to quick fix of freeing off the handbrake mechanism on each side but the fix is short lived.

ive had a read on this forum and understand the rear calipers were revised on later cars.

im planning to change both rear calipers to the later revised type along with carriers, cables and pads if required.

Can an anyone advise me if these are the revised calipers. Or which part no am I looking for?

Are you sure its not the cables? Cables can get water in causing freezing/sticking.

I have quickly checked the cables by releasing them from the calliper and checking the movement. They seem free.
I was thinking of changing these but there seems to be 2 or 3 different lengths
