Look at the pads and measure the thickness. The minimum allowed thickness for the brakes pads is 2 mm. Replace if they are worn to this point. You will have to remove the wheel to measure the pads.

You need a special tool to rotate the caliper piston back into place because the front caliper also acts as the parking brake.
