    Hi Bud
    looks like you have a calliper thats starting to sieze on piston needs pulling down and cleaning,and building with copper slip.vx won't cover under warranty on 07 as brakes are a normal wear part

    you will need a rewind tool mitch, my off side rear calliper was sticking a while ago but after a stripdown and a good clean it now seem's to be ok, i also fitted new disk's and pad's

    Your callipers need copper greasing mate,probably nowt more than that,your local will do that for a few quid,if you've got a regular mechanic.
    Either that or take the wheel off and do it yourself,ten minute job.
