I changed my rear pads today, now the passenger side got very hot and was squealling. I noticed when changing the pads that the inside pad was worn extensively and the outside and also both on the drivers side were not worn. What should I look for or do?

Same thing happened to me last week. Your caliper is stuck. Replace the caliper. Your gas mileage will also increase. Took my vehicle to the dealer when it was under warranty W/15,000mi They looked at it so called lubed the slides put it out the door. Now that it's out of waranty by time not milage /30,000. I'm fighting with ford. The repair cost $243.70. This should not be a problem on a $38,000.00 MSRP vehicle.
