I'll try keep this brief as I usually go on a bit. Basically, I pulled the hand brake up maybe a bit harder than usual, pulled away again to continue my journey then when I went to apply the brake about 1.5miles down the road, the brake pedal went to the floor with minimal engagement of the brakes.
Found somewhere safe to pullover and checked all 4 wheels. Drivers side rear caliper had obviously stuck on (I know this is common with these anyway, I did free up the pads/pins last month) as it was letting of a lot of heat compared to the other 3 which were only warm to the touch.
So I babied it to a public car park, gently pulled the hand brake up and down a few times to try unstick the caliper, also pumped the brakes a few times. Now, the brakes do feel a bit firmer again, but what I have noticed now, is even after pumping the brakes to get a hard pedal, it starts to creep back down.
So would this be a leak somewhere (I can't see any fluid leaks at the wheels but its now dark outside so I will double check tomorrow also the brake fluid IS still topped off in reservoir) or have I somehow destroyed the master cylinder along with the rear brake caliper?
Irony is a cow, I literally got a set of front discs and pads sitting at home ready to be fitted.
