Was hoping someone could shine a light on a problem I've been having with my mk4 1.4. Whenever its parked overnight or somewhere for a long time, one of the back brakes seem to seize up and lock the wheel, so when its in reverse (usually happens in reverse), it feels as if the cars handbrake is on so you need to rev it hard in order to release the brake which causes a loud bang from the release of the brake. But today it happened me when I was driving in the road the car started slowing down even though I tried accelerating, then there was a smell of cooked brakes I think it was so I pulled over turned it off then restarted it and it was okay after that.
Any ideas whats gone wrong?
Any help much appreciated
