I had a problem I thought was the parking brake being left part way on - overheating of the rotor - when I hit the parking brake hard when backing up the problem seemed to go away. I pulled a wheel and discovered the inboard rear passenger pad was gone.
I replaced both rear rotors and pads on both sides. The car rolls on a gentle grade or when barely moving, unlike when the 'parking brake' was locked and heated up - it stopped and I could tell it was that corner of the car. Don
