Caliper is close to being shot, probably a couple months left til it needs to be replaced. I took out the guides and polished them with the bench grinder. Lubed them up and put it back in. Also lubed up the pads where they meet the caliper.

Test drove for about 15 minutes and its all fine for now. Just lifted up again and wheel moves freely like it is supposed to move. I'm going to see if it does this again in the next couple of days.

Hopefully soon. I called up BMW Dealership they said they can't do it til Thursday the 19th. thats two weeks so I am taking it to a local shop, supposedly they have a Hunterforce alignment machine. I am going to call them today.
