Not quite what I had in mind !! lol I was thinking more along the lines of taking the pads out and giving the calipers a good clean with a wire brush or even a file if there's a lot of build up and rust and use some copper grease, not on the friction surfaces mind !

Posted a reply to the similar thread a minute ago.

Apply the copper grease to the back of your disc pads, that should fix the thing.

pressure washer in the brake pad is a really bad idea
