Question about 2005 Lincoln Town Car
Incorrect reassambly or binding caliper.
The caliper piston would bind due to rust and in such a case will need to be replaced. This is not easy to spot unless you diassemble the caliper itself which is why the mechanic may have missd it.
The parking brake may have been incorrectly reassembled (it uses shoes on the inside of the rotor) or may have been incorrectly adjusted causing it to be in permanent contact with the rotor, causing friction and excess heat.
Avoid unnescasarily driving the car while like this as the excess heat could cause further damage to the wheel bearing seals.
