If the front brake caliper is sticking, the disc may be uneven. Brakes that are left to scrape on the disc for a long time before they are changed will damage the disc enough to cause sticking or slipping.
The caliper could be hanging up. Or your right front brake line could be coming apart or kinked. that will cause it to pull left.
The attachment bolts might be loose
A car what has front disc and rear drum brakes have front brake pads and rear brake shoes.
A frozen brake caliper or if you just instaled new brakes and rotors you might have oil on the rotors as they need to be clean before installing.
It would depend if your car has 4 wheel disc brake or only the front (2) has disc brakes. You would have one rotor for each wheel with disc brakes.
On front disc rear drum vehicle , there is a metering valve to delay the disc brake operation until the rear drum brake shoes overcome the return spring tension . Without the metering valve , the front brake pads will contact with the disc too quickly when the driver apply the brake pedal .A fauty metering valve will cause front brake pads premature wear out . Some vehicle the metering valve housing in one assembly with pressure differential valve and proportioning valve called combination valve .
have the brake disc turned. or maybe, too much play in front end. Raise front wheel and try to move it side to side (with out moving the other front wheel) side to side slop means worn out steering linkage or control arm. Might cause vibrations. have the brake disc turned. or maybe, too much play in front end.

( 2 rotors on the front ) one for each DISC brake
Its got disc brakes in the front, therefor brake pads and its got drum brakes in the back, therefor brake shoes
it either has front disc brakes and rear drum or it has front and rear disc bakes. look for a flat disc in the front and back - those are front and rear disc brakes-they take pads. The drum brakes take shoes.
One may want to enlist the help of a professional to change the front brake disc on a Citroen Xsara Picasso. It can be a tough job and dangerous if not done correctly.
Air in the system. Bleed the brake system.
If you can see the brake caliper and rotor, then it has disc brakes. If all you see is a large drum then it has shoes. If you can see the front brakes thru the wheels, you can identify disc brakes. If the rear look like the front, then they are also disc brakes. However if the rear look much different, then chances are they are drum.
The rotor is the disc in the disc brake system.
disc brake components
Most front wheel drive vehicles do. -The caliper in all vehicles is fixed and the 'floating disc' is the brake rotor.
Brake dust from front disc pads
The front brakes have been disc for many years.
That would be a front disc/rear drum setup. ABS was available, though it was not a common option.
1995 Mercury Cougar does not have front wheel brake shoes. It has disc brakes and therefore disc brake pads. Copy & paste this link into your browser. http://www.advanceautoparts.com/english/youcan/html/ccr/ccr20021101db.html
Bring to a mechanic
Front rotors are warped and need to be replaced. Could be an out of round disc brake rotor
The reason is most likely a problem of warpage in the front rotor disc and/or disc drum in the back. If your tires are out of roundness, it can also be the cause.
