Default '94 Honda Accord quest?

2 front break calibers have been replaced but the front left wheel break is not releasing and it got burned. it seems like the front left wheel is more stuck than the front right wheel. the two rear break shoes are normal (they are spinning freely). what is the problem? Thank you.

There are a few basic checks you can to do before you get crazy and start replacing parts.First of all lets do some basic checks...check the brake pads and make sure that where they contact the caliper bracket they are not damaged and the contact points where the brake pads contact the caliper bracket are clean and lubed...I use anti-seize on the contact points...also check the brake caliper pins and make sure the brake caliper pins move freely...if they don,t then clean up the pins and make sure they move freely...if the pins are rusty and or the holes where the pins go are rusty you must clean the holes out..the easiest way to do this is to use a rifle brush that you can get from gun cleaning kit. I cut the end off and chuck it up to my drill and clean it that way...After that make sure the pins are straight and they are in the correct position...if you look at the end of the caliper bolt there will be a letter stamped on the end of the bolt...if you look at the caliper and you will see a letter stamped into the caliper where the bolt goes Thur the caliper. Match the letter of the bolt to the letter on the caliper...but before you put it together make sure the pins moves freely in the holes and then put anti-sieze on the bolts where they slide into the bore and get ready for reassembly...After you reassemble take it for a test drive...keep in mind that those year Model always had some drag on the wheels but if you do all of this you will minimize you drag...if you still have excessive drag try opening the bleeder screw and see if the wheel frees up that means there is pressure being held at the caliper it could due to a faulty brake hose. If you follow the brake hoes up you will see where it goes into the steel tubing that is a 10mm nut that connects the rubber hose to the steel hose...if you crack the nut loose and if the wheel does not frees up then te hose is bad...keep in mind that the brake hoses should be replaced in pairs... I know This allot of information but make sure that you clean the caliper pins and lube up the pins first...if you don't you might end up replacing allot of unnecessary parts and not fix the problem...good luck
