Brake Master Cylinder 05 Elise USA

Anyone know if this is legit?

Lotus Elise Exige Audi TT VW New Beetle Golf Jetta 23mm Brake Master Cylinder | eBay

Think my seals are bad on my car, can I pull the guts of this thing and swap them with my cylinder or should I just replace the whole thing?

Advice appreciated, haven't had this problem before on car, guess it's due now that my baby is almost 11 years old.

Okay, so last time I ordered from mylotusgarage, it took a while, then package was sent to wrong address (post office fault). It's now the 20th and I still have no package from them... do they order straight from Lotus without keeping stock physically?

I have found that it usually takes 3 weeks to receive something from them.

You may also want to ask the LOST guys. Good luck either way.

Just bleed the brakes normally and bench bleed the master cylinder before you install it. You don't need the scan tool unless you are installing an ABS unit.
