I have a problem with my Hyundai Tucson 2007, the rear left brake rotor is wearing only half an inch from its center (inside and outside face). I have checked the left rear brake pads (in and out), I cleaned the caliper and the caliper mounting bracket, the pad retainers and the brake pads still rub only on the inner brake rotor. The brake rotor is rusted 1 inch from the outer edge on the inside and the outside. What could be the problem?

I have a problem with my Hyundai Tucson 2007, the rear left brake rotor is
wearing only half an inch from its center (inside and outside face). I have
checked the left rear brake pads (in and out), I cleaned the caliper and the
caliper mounting bracket, the pad retainers and the brake pads still rub
only on the inner brake rotor. The brake rotor is rusted 1 inch from the
outer edge on the inside and the outside. What could be the problem?

i noticed two more problems, maybe the cause: 1. the caliper body moves, almost 0,03 inches / 1 millimeter, along the arrow depicted in the picture.

2. also the guide rod bolt circled in the picture also moves with the caliper body

3. the distance between caliper bracket frame and the brake rotor hub is less on the left side of the car where i have the problem, than on the right side of the car
