When I got home from work my right front brake disk was hot. Obviously from the caliper dragging, not releasing. This morning I drove to work and it was fine, not hot when I got to work. Is there a likely culprit other than replacing the caliper?
The calipers/rotors were replaced about a year ago.
TIA.

Ok what I would do is check all the sliding parts for proper caliper lube so that things move freely. If that all looks good then my next thing would be to check the brake line to the caliper see what it looks like if it is cracked then it should be replaced as you don't want crackes in brake lines. Let me know what you find include any pics if needed.
