Break shimmy, dust & heat.
I have been noticing for a few weeks that my passenger front rim is collecting a considerable amount of break dust on it. I have heard a little bit of intermittent squealing as well but nothing constant. I just had the car parked for a week while I was away and drove it for the first time again tonight. After maybe 5 minutes of driving I noticed a shimmy in the steering wheel. Upon slowing down and parking I noticed a "hot" break odor, and I could feel the heat radiating off of the rim as well as hear the break popping. I am fairly good with routine maintenance but besides replacing rotors and pads I don't have a whole lot of experience with breaks.
Any ideas of what could be wrong? Warped pads, Seized calipers, etc??? I really don't know where to start and what to look for or try so I would appreciate any ideas or opinions.
