If the components are all clean I would suspect a sticky caliper piston which releases very slowly and by the time you get the car jacked up and the wheel off it has released itself. I had a similar problem a few weeks back with a Ford Escort I suggest you get it sorted or you could end up having to replace the disc if it gets overheated
