There can only be a few reasons for this. 1, the piston is stuck in the caliper. 2, the brake hose has collapsed in the middle and won't allow fluid to flow back towards the master cylinder. Pull the caliper off and see if it can be pressed back with a C-clamp easily. If not, remove the brake hose then see if you can press it back. If you can not, the caliper piston is stuck. If you can, the hose is collapsed. Replace the appropriate part then bleed the brakes. You should no longer have the problem.

2001 gmc sierra 1500. The front brakes drag. I have replaced pads, calipers and hoses. Resevoir is full and gasket on cap is new. Can the brakes be adjusted?


No, there is no adjustment aside from being certain calipers are not binding. Be sure the M/C is fully releasing.
