1992 accord

Right side front caliper is sticking.
Took off caliper cleaned up moves freely by hand.
Put back on & still same
Someone said it could be the flex hose
How can I check to see if it is the flex hose


Cheers

try this...

...get it "stuck" by applying the brakes and then jack it up, remove the wheel and crack open the bleeder screw on the caliper. if you get a little blast of fluid and the caliper frees up, the hose is collapsed inside...replace it. if it still stays stuck, the piston is seizing in the caliper bore and you need to replace the caliper. as added insurance...whatever you do to one side, there's wisdom in doing to the other side.
