Question Rear Brakes Sticking On

Hi. I am having problems with mi rear brakes sticking on my 1.9 DCI Laguna II

I have changed the pads and the discs are ok - it seems to just be the drivers side that is sticking - I managed to release it with a lump hammer yesterday and so far (fingers crossed) they are not sticking, they are still catching though and I think if I brake hard or use the handbrake on full they will stick on - any ideas ?

there dosnt seem to be any boots / dust covers on the pistons - is this normal or is this the problem - many thanks.

Sounds like a sticky caliper piston or possibly a lazy handbrake cable. Yes the pistons should have boots otherwise the water will get in and cause the piston to seize.
Sadly repair kits are no longer available as far as I am aware

many thanks - do you recon the answer would have to be a set of calipers then ?

I echo the post by Madnoel10. The dust boot must be fitted or you'll get these problems. You may be able to get the boots from a breakers but check to condition of the piston first.

Is the boot missing on both sides? I'd check the fronts too.

Once the pistons get corroded there is always the liklihood of probs in the future. After-market recon units are available from most motor factors
Remember brakes are your best friends - you miss them most when they ain't there
