i have a 1998 gtv 2.0 ltr and every now and then the front offside brake would lock on solid if you brake so much so that the car would not go anywhere till it cooled off and the piston released itself replaced caliper with a second hand one greased it put new pads in to try and solve the problem the old caliper piston didnt have any rubber on it and was very rusty thought this had cured the problem took the car out today braked hard to test it caliper locked on solid the disc tore itself off the centre and snapped clean in two give me a heel of a shock do you think its another dodgy second hand caliper this piston was also very rusty under the rubber or do you think its an abs problem no abs light comes on and the other 3 calipers work with no problem
thanks mick
