Hi I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the rear brakes on my tourer are binding a bit - I can feel it when setting off and both rear wheels get warm after a drive. The local garage has taken a quick look and agrees they are binding but are stumped why. They say that: Pistons can be pushed back in easily enough. Pads, carrier, sliders etc look OK. Handbrake is fine it is the footbrake that is the problem. There is hydraulic pressure remaining after releasing the footbrake. Both calipers and hoses were changed in 2012/2013. Pads were changed again in Jan '14 and Dec '15 (~25K miles). I hadn't noticed the brakes binding prior to changing in December or immediately after changing. Options: Both calipers are not free enough and need changing - seems unlikely both would happen at the same time? Both hoses are kinked/faulty - seems unlikely both would happen at the same time? Four way joint caused a problem like this for one person. Possible? ABS module issue maybe? Any other cause? Thoughts? As these cars have ABS & EBD there is no proportioning valve anywhere right?
