Hello

I'd suggest to try checking the condition of the wheel bearing as if the disc is moving around it can create issues with with the pads being knocked back

so jack the car up so the wheel is off the ground (you’ll need to do this for all 4 corners) and shake the tyre from top to bottom and from side to side (with someone holding the steering wheel on the front) there should be no play in either direction. Any play in 1 direction will usually require a joint to be replaced, if there’s play in both directions then the wheel bearing may be at fault
