confused Front Brakes AU1

Just changed the front brakes on AU1 and the left side was hardly worn but the right side was almost metal on metal.Car brakes in a straight line,ABS works as it should,caliper slides are free and lubricated,piston is free.Know sign of brakes dragging on the right side,just stuffed pads in 18,000ks,one side only,any clues?

Re: Front Brakes AU1

they may have been mismatched pads, soft on the right and hard on the left?

Re: Front Brakes AU1

Mate it sounds like a jaming piston to me , my sons au1 did the same thing and it was sticking in the slides hope this helps.
