Clio mk1 Brakes Binding

Hi all,

I bought an old mk1 clio in Nov for my wife to learn to drive in and put it's through it's MOT and it failed with binding front brakes.

I've had a look today at the brakes and the pads look almost new but the discs that don't look too bad but have a bit of corrosion on. One of them seems to be slightly warped but this is just based on feel when turning the wheel and some parts being tighter than others. I haven't got the necessary tools to be sure of this though.

I'm considering replacing the discs and pads again to be sure that nothing is wrong with them and then making sure all relevant parts are greased up. Just wondering whether this is a common fault with the servo or caliper's that I should be aware about?

I've not got any service history on the car so no idea when the pads or fluid were last changed.

Any other ideas?
