Q: Sticking left front brake on 1999 Volvo V70 XC

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Just noticed after 10 mile drive. Car slows down quickly without coasting. Felt all disks when I got home. All but the left front disk was relatively cool. Left front sizzling hot. How do I unsieze? How far can I drive this to a mechanic if I can't repair/relace myself?

While still hot will be hard to move. When cools may move easier but every time you apply the brakes the heat builds again. You have a caliper seizing on you. Should replace in pairs and clean/lube caliper and pad mount with high temp lube. Make sure to flush brake fluid front and rear. Hopefully the master cylinder will be ok.
