over heating rear brakes

2000 w reg 1.9 dci laguna

Hey Guys
Quick question my rear brake discs get very very hot even on a short journey, But they spin nice and freeley when i jack it up very strange. I know a solid disc gets hoter than a vented disc but 75% of the braking should be on the front any ideas???

Re: over heating rear brakes

Sticking caliper sliders or pistons. They cool when the cars not driven hence the wheel spins freely. Once you start driving and using the brakes the sliders stick causing a heat build up and the sticking gets worse & worse.
