I've replaced my rear passenger caliper 3 times in the last 3 months and I can't understand why.
I've replaced brake pads, hose, drained brake fluid and refilled. I'm at a loss please help.

The hose was the best suspect if that brake is staying on and the wheel gets real hot. Next time this happens, stop on a slight incline, place a block about a foot downhill from a tire, shift to neutral, then use a flare-nut wrench to loosen the two steel lines at the master cylinder. If loosening one of them allows the trapped pressurized brake fluid to release, suspect brake fluid contaminated with a petroleum product.
