    Front Brake Dragging

    Hello all,
    my 06 Jetta is having a braking issue where the right front is dragging. I know it, because the wheel and rotor are HOT, HOT, HOT after driving. My thinking is a bad caliper - any other theories? I pulled it apart, and the caliper doesn't wanna compress.

    Thanks in advance,

    Darren

    Could be a bad flex line too, I had one go bad years ago and it behaved like a stuck caliper. A binding slider pin can behave the same too. If you're having a hard time getting the piston to retract it could very likely just be the caliper though.
    Light travels faster than sound, so people may appear to be bright until you hear them speak...
