i've just replaced my pads and disks (clio 1.5dci 2002). the passenger side pads were worn to the end of there life but the drivers side was ok to keep on - changed them anyway as you alwasy change a full axle i think:)

i'm just wondering was the problem could be really, as i've tested my brakes on a open road, i didn't touch the wheel and it did drag to the left.

i was thinking maybe air trapped in the drivers side lines? what you guys think?

thanks

yeah i thought of that after i posted, think it could be the piston, do i need to apply any sort of lube/grease after i've cleaned it?

think at the weekend i'll bleed the brakes and clean them up and go from there.

Hi Phil do not apply any grease or lube to the pistons - just work them in and out a few times should help - if it won't free up you could end up fitting a new caliper. Make sure the pads fit in easily by hand - do not force or use a hammer - you may have to clean the caliper guides (where the edges of the pads rest). I cannot emphasise enough th ecalipers should be realy clean before fitting new pads.:)
