I recently replaced caliper and pads also bled the brakes twice but I am still having my passenger front brake/rim heat up beyond touch i have to wait for them to cool down before working on them?

    Could be a bad brake line, the one that attaches to the calaper, inspect it, if it's cracked or damaged, it may not let the pressure back out, and the brake stays ingaged

    Finally had to take it the local repair shop...found out the brake lines collapsed....had to replace both brake lines! So, just leaving this message for others to see in case they have the same problem....check those brake lines! So you were right here!
