    Car pulling to the left...

    As the title says. My car is pulling to the left, it seems to be worse some days more than others but it is always present.
    I have noticed that even after a 5 mile journey, if i spit on the front discs the water sizzles. My brakes also squeak all the time, and they always have done ever since i had them fitted in March. They are good quality brakes but they just squeak non stop. I think maybe the brakes are binding on the left hand side.

    If not that, what else could it be?

    usually when a car pulls to left means that the opposite calliper is not working so when you brake the calliper that works will pull the car on that side.take your jack out and jack up each side and spin the wheel you probably find the drivers side is sticking.make sure not in gear when spinning wheel.

    It isnt under braking, its constantly even when just driving, with varying degrees of pulling...

    From your first post I would say the caliper is sticking and dragging on the disk.
