Q: Why does only one front brake get really hot? on 1990 Chevrolet S10 Blazer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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
I had the same problem, it was the hose, looked fine but collapsed inside. Thanks
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!
