Question about 1987 Jeep Cherokee
If it's getting hot that usually means that the flex hose to the caliper has become blocked. When that happens caliper can't retract so it stays applied. Remove the hose and try to blow through it. If difficult, it's shot...replace it. Also, if it has been doing this for some time, the pads are probably toast and if the rotor is blue, or if pedal pulses after your'e finished, you will need to chae rotor as well. Don't forget...change pads on both sides if one side is damaged!! Only other thing to check is the caliper slide pins...make sure they are not rusted or binding.
