    Default rear right brake sticking

    Hi Everyone please help.

    Okay so I have had the car for 2 days and I have an issue where the rear right brake pad sticks and now everytime the wheel rotates it makes a rumbling (clunking) noise I have put a pic below as I am NOT mechanically minded at all so I don't know if any one can see if anything is wrong with it.

    Possibly corroded sliders..... the two pins/bolts the caliper moves on..... removed from the inner face of the carrier, possibly hidden under rubber caps.

    Are you sure it's a sticking brake and not a knackered wheel bearing?
    Try what handyandy suggested, if that fails it's going to be either the bearing (causes a rumbling sound) or a sticking caliper itself

    it depends whats wrong. If it's a sticking slider maybe £10-£20 (it really is an easy thing to do yourself)
    Wheel bearing i'm not sure, I'd hazard a guess at around £100-£150 maybe

    If you look at the caliper from the back facing the front of the car, the very top and bottom will have bolts going in (about 13mm I think) there will be wee rubber boots, the sliders are in there. It's a case of undoing those 2 bolts and sliding the caliper off then popping out the sliders. Stick in some grease (I use copper grease) pop them back in and push them in and out a few times. Then caliper back on, tighten up the bolts (they don't need to be overly tight, just a nip)

    The carrier (1) is the part mounted to the hub... contains the piston and remains stationary.

    The caliper (2) slides on two pins which screw in through the caliper.

    The anti-rattle spring (3) is just what it says.

    The pads (4 - part of one visible) are squeezed by the carrier and caliper against the rotating disc to slow it.
