This problem is caused by a leaking ABS hydraulic control valve, this is the large block with all the brake lines going into coming out of it.

Sounds like you have a seized passenger side caliper assembly. May need to be replaced, in which case you are better off replacing both front calipers as a set.

After i changed my brake caliper my brakes in the front passenger side is steel rubing


Time to take it into a mechanic. If you have changed the rotor, brake pads, and calipers and you are still getting a smoking, it might be something in the actual brake lines. Get it to a certified mechanic fast.-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Left front brakes stuckes


caliper may be sticking this will require over haul (new seals maybe pistons) do both calipers as a pair or you may find brakes will drag to the right if you only do left side I've found this out the hard way

Toyota corolla ae110 brakes binding


Please DO NOT drive in with the vehicle in this condition!!!!
What you have going on is that the brake caliper (part that holds your brake pads) is bad and sticking. Just remove it, get a NEW one from any chain autoparts store,and replace it. You will have to get a new set of pads as well,as due to the binding, the ones on there now are trashed.

Again,PLEASE do NOT drive in this condition as yours and your fellow drivers ,as well as your passengers safety is at stake.

Its possible the brake pads have worn down again, if they are and , obviously , you need to change them. Pay attention to the brake caliper pistons, check that they are not sticking or seized and also the caliper slider. Free off these parts. Hope that helps

Front right Brake Smokes


Its possible that the caliper slides are binding,the caliper is warped,the calipers piston is jamming,Basicly from what youve just said with the over heating you really should replace caliper,rotor,pads and flush brake fluid.The heat your talking about destroys all the rubber seals in thecaliper destroys brake fluid and severely weakens the rotor.If you take the pads out you are likely to find cracking in the pads.Make sure before you fix it that you know what caused it.Is it abs as it maybe a potential cause.
