Black Horse Motor Warranties???????

Having not had my SLK 350 long and with it being a late 04...I wasn't kidding myself that there wouldn't be a few small "issues" The company I bought it from was a local Subaru dealer who don't have much idea about MB's...that said the car came "FULLY WARRANTIED" with a policy from Black Horse Motor Warranty...through a trading branch "Car Care Plan"...anyways...looks like my rear caliper which is supposedly "covered" is seizing...they're saying that it seizing is not "mechanical failure"??? I think that this is very very poor...a caliper doesn't really do much, its a piston and a seal and I'm saying that a seized caliper surely must be "failed",they're saying the seals must be leaking for mechanical failure??? Doesn't specify this in the warranty brochure?? What's not covered is "renewal of brake components due to wear and tear". Which I accept but the caliper is not a listed a wear and tear component....

Opinions people please....?????

I take this to mean pads and rotors. I agree that the pistons are not wear and tear items.
