SOUNDS LIKE BRAKE PADS ARE CONSTANTLY RUBBING ROTOR ROTOR AN PADS GET VERY HOT AND SMOKE?

2000 Pontiac Grand Am • 104 miles

My front driver side brake sounds like the pads are constantly rubbing the rotor. Replaced the calper, calper pins pads cylinder. The rotor an pads get very hot an makes a pulsating rubbing sound. Tried replacing every thing I know that could be the problem. Its bleeding off good just seem like the pads are rubbing the rotor. What could cause this and how can I fix it?

Both parts metal an rubber?

An can u plz explain why the hose would make the rubbing sound?

Cus it is getting fluid to the calper an bleeding of good pedal is good and tight.

Just rubber part. Hose is internally restricted causing failure to return fluid pressure to master resulting in constant pressure on pads. That's the most common reason for your symptoms.
