Re: Clio brake problem

Had a similar issue with my daughters Clio.

It turned out to be the top part of the pads were binding on the underside of the caliper body due to corrosion building up over time.

I removed it with a hammer and small chisel and there have been no issues since.

If you remove the caliper body from the mounting bracket and turn it upside down you may be able to see a mark where the pads have been binding.

Currently in KennyN's garage:
