I'm thinking i have a frozen rear caliper on my E! :mad:

When i come to a stop after driving for a period of time, i can smell the unmistakable stench of brakes. I've had the sliders out a few different times since this has been an on going problem. I've lubed them and it doesn't seem to improve the situation. I'm getting tired of this problem and i'm not sure what else it could be. Could it be the brake fluid needs a change? Can the piston itself be frozen? If so, how can i "unfreeze" it? She's got 132k on her and i'm trying to avoid buying new calipers :-(

Thanks for any help or ideas

Steve
