Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara
Front brakes both binding after short journey. Foot brake pedal rock hard. Release pressure at back of caliper either wheel, brakes release. Ok for an hour or a couple of days and then problem returns. Have bleed system and changed flexible hoses / checked calipers. Could this be a problem with the master cylinder? Please help as this is driving me mad.
Be sure you have changed the break oil completely. Otherwise drain the hydraulic system and renew with correct type of oil. If you have a ABS system you have to check that also.

If youi have replaced the rubber hoses and the calipers( they will stick even if u think they are not) then the problem could be in the abs unit( if equipped) to the master cyclinder. I would take it to the dealer or a brake specialty shop for in depth checking/testing.
