Hi ,i have a vw scirocco 1987 8valves,all the brakes are new,even the lines ,master cylinder,galepper,pads,rotors,drums.when the car is hot the pads stick on the front disk,everithing is new?what is the...

Well, I really think you may find the problem only between two things: Caliper, pads or brake shoes, Beacuse I guess If you bought new drums you bought new shoes too didn't you? But if you're sure it is in front disk, then, you just have to check, you got the right caliper and pads and check the caliper is well adjusted and installed I hope this helps good luck!

Occasionally after driving and stopping my right front brake caliper is slow to release,a few times it actually stayed applied and become extreamely hot. When this happen I opened the bleeder screw...

Replace the rubber brake hose on that side....they are prone to rotting on the inside and letting fluid pass through it ,but not letting it back out,causing caliper to stay hung up and making you believe caliper is sticking,and opening the bleeder lets off pressure for a little while...I have seen many unneeded calipers be replaced,and then problem is still there.Now I will almost always replace both hoses when doing a front caliper change....they get old too...Good luck..Lee

Just replaced brake pads on my 99 chevy p.u. seem to be fine when they are cold but feel like they are grabbing when they heat up. What could be the problem?

Hope you are talking about the front brakes,First check to see if the brakes are releasing the brake rotor.If they are not,it is posible the slide on the caliper need cleaning and lubed.Also could be the brake hoses colasping,and not allowing the piston in the brake calipers to release.Did you have the rotors turned?It could have something to do with it.Also what it probley is,that when you pushed the piston back in the caliper,you didn`t remove the master cylinder top off.Bleed the right front caliper,then the left front caliper,and then the master cylinder.This should clear it up.

Caliper won't release on right front brake--everything is new, replaced because of that problem but no fix

Check the left rear brake for sticking on also, if it is then you have a master cylinder problem. replace brake master cylinder but check the adjustment of the brake light switch first. the switch is above the brake pedal, make sure it is not holding the pedal partially on.

Brakes are sticking after application front right being the worse


I've had a similar problem as what you describe. For me it was as simple as replacing a faulty front brake line. Never had any problems since. Hope this will help you narrow it down some.
