i have a 2007 saturn . my front left brake was locked up .
i replaced the brakes rotors calipers on both both sides .
i drove it and all of sudden the front right brake locked up again . no lights or on however, .
what can this issue be. ??

it's your brake hose to that caliper,

the fluid breaks down the rubber inside and causes a one way valve type action when they go bad.

Please remember to RATE me, this is how I'm compensated for my time, efforts, and knowledge. Thank you!

i was able to bleed it fine to get i going,
are you saying the hose end needs to be replaced ,

yes the hose needs to be replaced.

the caliper loosens up when you open the bleeder.

thats why you can get it to work for a bit after bleeding it.

the hose isnt allowing the fluid to flow back ? i dont understand ?? can you explain whats happening one more time please .

the rubber inside the hose breaks down and the particles end up acting like a one way valve.

so the fluid goes in but never comes back out.

In turn you will be able to drive for a day or so, depending on the severity of the deterioration.

I've changed out quite a few due to this .

hoses range from 7 to 18 dollars each.

it's an inexpensive fix.
