Elise front brakes dragging - video attached

Hey Guys,

Recently heard a sound coming from my front passenger wheel when driving and it would get a little bit louder when I braked. I posted a video on YouTube when I got home and lifted the car so the noise can be heard.

I push the caliper Piston back and swapped out both pads on both fronts tires (both fronts were making noise), put the wheels back on and everything spun freely without any noise. I pumped the brakes a few times the noise came back. Do you think this is a rotor issue, caliper Pistons issue, or something entirely different?


Thanks!
