left rear brake getting hot, sometimes

replaced rotors and pads all the way around, now occasionally the left rear gets smoking hot, not always just sometimes. did a search and found the same problem but no answer to it, anyone had this happen?

Check the slide pins or the caliper itself

Do you use your Parking Brake a lot? Could the left side be hanging-up at those times it's getting hot?

can be the rubber hose rotting from the inside, not releasing pressure too.

caliper pistons are known to hang /crack on these

I would visually inspect or just replace they are under 60 with a full hardware kit from Autozone ,,, not that I like throwing parts at stuff but you risk ruining your new pads and rotor if you don't get it resolved

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Replace the caliper

I had the same thing happen to me. Replaced everything except the caliper... figured I would save some money... even replaced the caliper guide rods and rubber boots.... After driving about 2 miles the brake was smoking.

Replaced the caliper and connecting brake hose.

All good now.

A brake caliper is about $55.... guide rods and boots are about $15... So I should have just spent the extra $40 the first time and been done with it....
