Re: Clio new front brakes binding
Assuming all is well with the caliper the pads should just drop into place - no force needed. When the caliper is replaced the disc should turn freely by hand.
Loosening any bolts could be asking for trouble. All brake bolts shoud be correctly torqued and have thread-lock compound on their threads.
Looks like you have a problem elsewhere. I suggest you get it sorted properly before driving any further.
Remember brakes are like your best friends - you miss them most when they ain't around.
