Front brake of Mercury Sable 1997 ceases Sign In

1997Mercury Sable V6 3ltr Wagon208 214 km
Left front brake heats up.The problem started more than a year ago at about 202895 km with some noise. The problem was a ceased sliding pin. The sliding pins were made movable and greased. Some month later at 204450 km the brake froze. A replacement caliper was installed. A week ago at 208205 km the brake froze again. All the brake lines were flushed and since the caliper was still under warranty a replacement was installed. The sliding pins are well greased and move well.However after a test drive today, the brake heated up again.What can be the problem?Please let me know if you have any suggestions.Otto

Replace the 2 front flex hoses.

You shouldn't be changing a single caliper ever. Always in pairs.
