Problem: ‘04 Sonata V6>
passenger rear brake pads won’t fully release from the rotor
Tried: 1)new brake calipers and brake lines at the calipers
2)new rotors and brake pads
3)re-Inspected caliper pins?
4)brake piston moves freely(not seized) of course this is new gear

Not sure what to do next, when I put new pads on I left the old brackets on. This seemed to also contribute to the pads remaining in contact with the rotors. When I test drove it, smoke and the terrible smell showed. I took it back apart put the new brackets and a little anti seize and this seemed to allow the pads to back off the rotor “some”.
Test drove, no smoke but it’s obviously still holding and heating up. Any ideas?

Did you bleed all the old brake fluid to the rear calipers?
Do you have an ABS control unit?

Contaminant in brake fluid can cause calipers to stick
Or Abs unit is causing issue

All wild guesses

I believe it was bled to the rear. How could I correct this ? Should the fluid be flushed again?

Abs ? Would there be a light on if this was the case?
