Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line
Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line. Make sure the brake caliper is what is stuck and not trouble with the rubber flex line. In this video I try and show how I determine if the brake caliper is stuck, the slides are stuck ,or a rubber flex line is causing the issue. If you try and push the piston back in the caliper by sticking a screwdriver in and pulling,it will give you a good indication of what the issue is. You may also need to loosen a bleeder or a banjo bolt to test the line . By relieving brake fluid pressure , if the brake caliper goes in easy then chances is the rubber flex line is the issue.

Possible culprit when your brake caliper is sticking on your vehicle.
If you have a brake caliper sticking. Or even a new replacement one sticking. It is a good possibility it is the hose. I went online and saw mechanics talking about a hose can work as a check valve. But evena mechanic buddy of mine never saw one do what mine did. This can likely be a real issue if you live in a State that uses road salt. I drive my truck on some saltwater beaches. So its about the same thing. Hope this video helps someone getting frustrated by braking issues. Apologize for the shaky video. Camera has zero stabilization.
