    I noticed on mine that under the rubbers where the slides slide through can get a build up of corrosion which stops the slides from sliding. This means the calipers dont move freely. You need to remove the rubbers and clean the corrosion away using sand paper. I posted a pic of this a while back, hold on while I find it.
