why does my new brake calliper not release?
I replaced the brake calliper now it will not release when you take foot off pedal in fact you can smell brake lining.........
Usually, the cause is contaminated brake fluid. Exchange the brake fluid in the system for new fluid - then bleed the system thoroughly. There may also be a collapsed or restricted flexible brake hose at the caliper. You may have to replace the flexible brake hoses at the calipers (as the hoses are always replaced in pairs) - then drain and bleed the system using the new fluid.
