I am having a problem with pads wearing out on the front passenger side. When I replaced the pads a couple months ago I noticed only that side was worn badly, ruining the rotor. Assuming that I had a bad caliper I replaced it and put on new pads and rotors. Already the same side has worn completing through the pads and is digging into the new rotor. Is there something causing the new caliper to stick? Or do I have another problem?

Could be the caliper piston binding in its bore, brake hose collasped inside acting like a one way check valve or a problem with the master cylinder

Are you saying that I got a bad caliper?

Open it back up and push the caliper piston in flush-do this engage caliper than push piston back in and see what happens-
