I have a TF with what feels like sticking brakes. All the pads are free and also the calliper pistons. Are there any other faults mlike sticking linkages or master cylinder faults?
thanks

Peeps will probably need a bit more to go on than that.
Sticky when you put them on, sticky when you release them, sticky pedal, sticky after the handbrake comes off, sticky when you jack the wheel and spin it .....?

When driving slow it feels like the brakes are binding - sometimes if there is a slight incline if you brake the car stops but doesn't roll
thanks

What's the colour of the brake fluid?

My OH's TF has a noticably spongyer feel to my brakes and looking at the fluid, i can see why! Looks like the dirty water after washing my whole car!

Brand new fluid should be brown but clear and clean.

Keep an eye on your rear brake disks as Chris was suggesting, the handbrake mechanism in the callipers has been known to bind.
