Hi, my nam is Tim, this is usually caused by a colapsed brake hose, the rubber one off the caliper, how many miles do you have on this?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
over time, the inner lining of the hose corrodes and can restrict the flow, thus causing it to stick on, and is very common on these with higher mileage, I would remove the hoses and see if you can blow through them, if not, then replace both sides,Tim
