I would take the disk and the pads off the car and wipe everything clean. Make sure that the pads are there, as they could have come off. If the pads are on and everything is clean, you can sand the disk and the pads with some 220 sand paper. Sometimes the disk and/or the pads get glazed, that could be your problem.

Any will do, but I woulnt go finer than 220, if you do, you might make it worst. You need to scratch it a little, not just to clean it, but also so the pads have something to grab onto.

While you have the brake disc out of the car, give it a good clean with either some isopropyl alcohol or denatured alcohol......you`ll be surprised at how much rubbish ends up on the brake disc.

The higher the number the finer the paper.
