Brakes shop in SEPA

I have a brake fluid leaking from one of the calipers, so I'm looking for a shop that can fix it without "let's replace the whole caliper and be done with it" BS. Can anyone suggest such a shop in SEPA?

It depends where it is leaking. Either the tubing, the fitting or the caliper itself.

Yes, I understand that. It looks like the leak is coming from one of the pistons on the engine side

It would be either on the driver's side of the passenger side.

so I took the caliper off and it looks like a seal on the top piston was displaced. I put it back and it has been a week since and brakes are not leaking. Should I do anything else?

wouldn't take a chance on it holding up. I would install a new one.
