I too have seen this happen, seems like it is becoming more common.

Good Suggestion!

Just crack the bleeder valve and see if the piston releases.

NEW INTERIORS Some of the newer vehicle you have to turn it as you push it in with a c-clamp.

KULTULZ It sounds like a frozen caliper. The cheapest way out is an exchange caliper as yours has a ratcheting piston design for the parking brake and requires special service tools to overhaul.

Rear brake caliper stuck?

My son has a 94 Mustang GT that started making a grinding noise at the passenger side rear wheel. I jacked the rear end off the floor, removed the wheel, put the car in neutral and had him turn the opposite wheel. The passenger side was obviously dragging. I then had him operate the parking brake and it seems to be operating correctly. Then I had him operate the brakes and noting seemed to change. Upon closer inspection, I noticed what appears to be a caliper stuck against the rotor. Nothing seems to get it freed up.

Any ideas?
