Re: How to change front discs and pads(with pics)

Sounds like the caliper pistons keep returning and not staying firm against the brake pads.

I once had a similar problem with a Vauxhall Corsa. I sorted the problem by using a brake flexi-hose clamp. Depress the brake pedal fully - clamp the hose release the brake pedal slowly - release the clamp and repet the procedure 2- 3 times. It may work in youir case - worth a try.
