    did you assemble them dry or with copper grease?...for some reason the vectra-c and signum do like their pads being fitted with a smear of copper grease on the backs of the pads and the tangs that fit into the carrier.. are you 100% certain that the tiny spring cliup is properly engaged on the piston groove?

    Check the handbrake cable/mechanism & return spring.

    I had same problem after replacing rear calipers, i then ended up changing handbrake cable & return spring.

    The springs are shoddy cheap & dont always do there job

    Maybe caliper semi seized,or maybe the handbrake,remember reading a thread on here about handbrake fault worth removing discs and checking handbrake is adjusted correctly,without looking at it or hearing it couldn't think of anything else......

    Let us know how you get on.........
