There's actually a couple of things. As stated earlier, the pistions
can stick in the bores, but also the caliper can get stuck on the
mounting bolts. It is supposed to slide on these, but if it gets
stuck, the non-piston pad can drag when the brakes are released, or
not touch the pad when the brakes ARE applied.
