do not drive the vehicle. remove the hoze. replace it with steel line. rubber hoses are not meant for the high pressures of brake lines. it is expanding when you press the brake pedal. very unsafe.

SOURCE: rear brakes over heating
u have a defective ABS hydraulic control valve, this is an active control system and it can apply pressure regardless of pedal input from the driver, the problem is a tiny hydraulic pressure valve is leaking and applying that brake piston.

SOURCE: Is it possible to bleed
First, the brake line: You should be able to purchase it from any auto parts store, brick and mortar or online. Online try rockauto . com. You might also try a local NAPA store.
You can bleed the brake yourself without any special tools. It is a two person job. 1. Locate the brake bleed fitting, near where the line attaches to the caliper. It look like a zerk fitting. 2. You will need the correct size box end wrench to loosen the fitting. 3. Before loosening the fitting attach a 2-3 foot section of 1/4 or 3/8 inch vacuum hose to the end. 4. Fill a clean small plastic water bottle with 2 inches of new brake fluid. Put the end of the hose in the bottle and be sure the end stays below the fluid level at all times. 5. Remove the brake master cylinder fill cap and be sure the reservoir is full with new fluid. 6. Open the fitting on the brake no more than 1 1/2 turns (2nd person) 7. Slowly pump the brake peddle down and up. Bubbles will come out of the line in the bottle. The goal is to pump the peddle until there are no more bubbles and only fluid is coming out the end of the hose in the bottle. If you do not keep the end of the hose below the fluid level, air will re-enter the caliper. 8. After every 3 pumps on the brake peddle, check the mater reservoir and refill it with new clean fluid. 9. When there are no more bubbles from the hose end, push the bake peddle down and hold down. At the same time, close and tighten the caliper fitting and remove the hose. Then release the brake peddle. 10. You should do this process on all four wheels, to be sure there is no air in the system. 11. Be sure to test the brake in a safe area. There should be no sponginess to the peddle. The vehicle should stop straight, with no pulling to one side or the other.
This is a relatively easy task it you have two people and the right supplies
You need to use care to be sure that now bake fluid gets on any part of the brake pads or rotors. It will also damage paint. Where nitrile gloves and eye protection. DO NOT reuse the bake fluid the you collect in the plastic bottle no matter how clean it looks. Dispose of properly.
You can buy a relatively cheap brake bleeder kit from HarborFrieght Tools
