Sounds like the caliper needs replaced. Sometimes the pistons lock in the caliper and cause the brakes to drag. When the mechanic changed the brakes before, he pushed the pistons in all the way to accomodate the new brake pads. Now that they are wearing back down, it is getting to the warped spot in the caliper and starting to stick.

Well I don't think you'll need to buy parts,it sounds like there may be sludge built up between the master cylinder and the proportional valve to the front brakes.Pull the valve off(follow the line off the master cylinder and you'll find the valve)clean it and then flush/bleed the master cylinder before you reinstall,Then flush/bleed the rest of the system.There's a relly good chance that may be all you need to do,but you may need to pull the calipers and clean them also.Comment back if you need more help,Good Luck(To)Yotaguy

use a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the caliper bolts/slides. remove caliper. note how old pads came off, match the new pads with same location of old pads ( check for hardware or indicator location). press the caliper piston in . the correct way is to use a caliper press, apply a little pressure to piston, open bleeder screw, press piston all the way in, tighten bleeder. (or grab a 'c' clamp and slowly push the piston in. i would recommend having the rotors machined to for proper wear and to eliminate vibration. for this remove 2 17mm bolts holding caliper bracket on and rotor will slide off.
