After a huge rain in Perth today my EL started to shudder, I thought it was a flat tyre so I pulled over and found that the left hand rear had steam coming off it and was bone dry, I guess from the heat. I think the brake has stuck and wont depress. Does this sound right or could it be the diff?
Also can anyone suggest a good place to have it looked at around Bayswater/ Belmont in Perth? I had to leave it because she wont move and I don't live around there.
Cheers Josh

Found out what it was, my brake pads were completely worn and the piston on the caliper bushed out too far and bent slightly locking the pad to the disc. Probably should get the disc machined but short on cash, so I just got new pads.
