Seized caliper?
« on: 20:45, Fri 07 October 2011 »
When driving for a while i can hear a sqeaking coming from my front offside wheel. The wheel is hot to the touch compared to all the other wheels. The wheel does not seem to be binding though. I had the brake servo replaced a short while ago and there are no leaks on the master cyclinder.

Does it sound like i need a new caliper?

No the caliper slides on some silders, worth checking it moves freely on those.
