Re: Clio new front brakes binding

Had the same issue with my daughters `06 Clio, it turned out to be a pad binding on the inside of the caliper body due to corrosion.

A couple of taps with a hammer + chisel removed the layers of rust and I also had to file a little off the top of the pads metal backing.

If you have a look on the underside of the caliper you should see marks where the body and pad have been binding.

Currently in KennyN's garage:
`10 Mercedes CLS , `07 Scenic , `03 ZX12R , `01 ZRX1100 , `84 GPZ1000 , `06 Clio Campus
