There's a bit of grit in the sliding mechanism. Strip it down and clean it. You'll just need to remove the caliper from the strut (17mm socket) and then remove the slide bolts with a 7mm allen key. Clean the slide bolts with a wire brush, blow crud out from piston and surrounding area with compressed air, add some coppaslip - done. Half-an-hour's work.
