I recently had new brake master cylinder and front calipers replaced on my vehicle. Drove it and the front caliper was still sticking. Found out it was the brake hose on passenger side. Could I have damaged the new caliper by driving it? The car pulls to the right when I step on brake hard. Also, minor squeaking on right. When I drove it it was smoking on the passenger side. Could I have burned the pad to where I now have to replace it?

Hello
Thanks for the donation

Since the caliper was sticking and it is now pulling to the right I would suspect uneven wear of the brake pads. This will cause the vehicle to pull when braking. I suggest having both front brake pads replaced to ensure nice even wear and avoid brake pull. The caliper should still be fine as long as it is no longer sticking.

Thanks for using 2CarPros. Com!
