Are you comparing the heat of each rear rotor to determine one is hotter than the other?

When you replaced the Caliper did it come with the bracket with slide pins?

everything is good...I replaced everything with dealer parts...
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am going to take it to the dealer cause u guys don't seems to know what's wrong or what am saying. ..

Sorry for the delay. If you lift the wheel do you feel any resistance? Maybe the emergency brake is staying applied or is over adjusted
