Time to change the caliper, and check the rubber brake hose sometimes they can "hold" fluid like a one way valve simple process, inspect the inboard brake pad for more wear..check the RIGHT also when one side has an issue Its not long before the other side will have the same problem, couple months or hundreds of miles?

Thank you. Right side looks new. Left side is very rusty. Bought the vehicle 3 days ago


I would change both front calipers and brake hoses and flush the old brake fluid out of the system.
