Re: Clio mk1 Brakes Binding

Take the pads out make sure they are not binding in any way in the calipers, that you can push the pistons back into the caliper's and the calipers themselves slide on there's pins.
You can sometimes leaver the calipers over with a screwdriver pushing the pistons back, and them see if everything is moving freely.
If in any doubt take it to someone that knows what they are doing safety is worth a few quid.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
