    Default Seized brakes.

    Hi everyone. Recently my dad's Vectra's brakes seized while he was braking and hardly was brake to drive home on second gear. It happened twice and first time after short time brakes let go but this time he had to wait much longer.

    Front or rear?

    Rear calipers can stick holding the pad against the disc there is a how to on here a good article for freeing them off.

    Fronts may require some work a full brake check is a must.!
