Question about Toyota Tercel
A sticky or seized caliper will cause the wear to the rotor. First thing you need to do is to check caliper to see what is causing it to stay in the applied position. Is it a bad/seized piston in the caliper, or is the slides, and pins for caliper dirty, dry, corroded,rusted etc, that is causing it to not retract properly. It may even be a brake flex hose defective as well. I'm assuming you've done this type of work before, and know how to test if caliper is staying in applied position, because of seized piston, or if caliper assy., needs clean and lube, as well as test flex hose. Give me an idea of your experience in this area, and I will continue from there. If replacing rotors, yes I would do them in pairs, as well as calipers, unless one caliper is recently new.
