WHAT WOULD CAUSE MY RIGHT FRONT BRAKE CALIPER TO NOT BE BACKING OFF PROPERLY FROM THE ROTOR?

2001 Pontiac Grand Am • 188,000 miles

Had issuie with right front disk, changed pads on left and right, bled old fluid. Brakes worked fine. 3 weeks later right front is not backing off the rotor all the way when brakes are applied.

What is the indication it's not releasing? Could be restricted rubber hose at caliper. The hose bracket can rust on inner surface and squish hose shut stopping return of fluid.
