    Must be a seized caliper.
    Could even be on o/s causing all brake effort on to n/s.
    Does car pull to one side when braking?

    its not a siezed caliper that would have the car coming to a stop with loads of smoke and a bright orange disk. Check the back plate isnt touching the disk or that there isnt a stone in it, sometimes the back plate is close to the disk but not touching it. When cornering the disk deforms and then touches the backplate, you need to give the plate a small bend back
