Front Wheel Lock up!?!

Yep Winter here!


Not being able to get out of my flat drive way i decided to investigate, and i figuired out that the passenger side front weel locks up once in a while :eek: , on a light stop sign... i can actualy here the brake galiper tightening up and releasing.

Did this happen to somebody in the pass?
