Hi all can anyone help me please my front driver side brake keeps seizing, this happens when becoming warm to the point of slowing me down to a halt. I had the brakes replaced a couple of months ago which i did myself, this problem seems to come and go and can be seized for a while then it seems to right itself, please any suggestions would be more than grateful.

it could be a sticking caliper or the flexable hose breaking down not allowing the pressure to release.

as someone said above, sounds like the flexi pipe to the calliper may need replacing.
was it a calliper from a scrapyard or a recon unit?

buying a second hand one can be a dangerous business unless you have proof that it is in good working order. did you get any warranty with it?
