Good luck getting the dealers to cough up the previous owner of me wife's Fiat had a seized rear caliper that wasn't covered under warranty, receipt showed a total of £495 to replace! But this is Fiat......

This exact same thing happened to me not so long ago, on the way to the Silverstone meet as it happens! Rear caliper stuck, had the breakdown guy out who took it off, fiddled about it with a bit, and said it was fine. Hasn't happened since.
