Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi my name is Peter, did you just have this caliper put on at a shop or did someone else do it.? The reason I am asking is the most likely reason a piston would stick on a brand new caliper would be incorrect installation, maybe something wasn't lined up properly, the retaining bolts for the caliper may be loose and it is shifting when you put on brakes, or maybe someone whether the person who installed the caliper or the person who put it together at the factory scratched the piston or cylinder wall and that could be causing it to hang up. Maybe the rubber boot that protects the piston came loose and dirt or trash got between the piston and cylinder wall. Hope I may have hit the right thing for you let me know and I'll see if I can help anymore.

Is the piston sticking in the caliper or is the caliper sticking on the outside slides preventing it from moving to the disc?

You brake HOSE may have deteriorated, and is not allowing fluidto drain out of the caliper piston. I found out after a piston, caliper, two disks. The wheel would LOCK UP it got so bad.
