    Major problem?

    Driving home last night from college, I wouldn't particularly say I was driving any faster than usual, but when I got home I smelt burning, popped my bonet, got out the car, my brake disc was glowing red, lifted my bonet and the ring connecting the lead from my engine to my manifold was also glowing red.

    In all seriousness I am a car noob. My astra is my first. Any light on the matter?

    Likely a siezed caliper if only one side has done this.
