    really need some help on this problem i have . just taken the car for mot . sailed straight through untill it got to testing the brakes on the rollers .. the front wheels are showing that there sticking really badly ? . the passenger side is sticking more than drivers .. the meter shows that the brakes are pulling themselves on harder the longer its on the rollers . but if you jack the car up the wheels spin freely and you can push the car forwards an backwards with ease ?

    anybody got any idea`s as i need my car on the road :(

    cheers jamie :)

    Calipers need to be free'd up. Either the pins or the pistons are sticking.
