Brakes Pulling Left When Cold. - BA XR6 Ute

My ute is steering (pulling) left every morning as soon as I touch the brakes (standard) for the first 2 or 3 applications then the problem disappears.

I've checked the obvious, tyre pressure, wheel nut tension etc and all appears normal. The ute has covered +/- 6,500km.

Is this an isolated case or has others experienced the same thing?

All reply's appreciated, Cheers!

could be a caliper that is binding when it is cold. When it heats up, the brake fluid thins and lubricates the moving parts and the metal parts (caliper body?) expands, freeing up the mechanism...
Well thats my theory. See if it comes under warranty.

XF died, Now It's a 6-cyl Cortina!
Rear ended 3 times, 4 close calls.
All while I was stationary, still counting the idiots..

Thanks for the reply. Took the ute to the dealer today, this was there diagnoses too. Will have to wait and see how it develops, but it is hard to demonstrate when it only happens occassionaly. Cheers!
