Ford Ka - Brake Caliper - Drivethru

I had overheating and a burning smell from the passenger side brakes two weeks ago, I got the local garage to check and they said it needed pads and discs and it didn't look like anything was seized. It's a lot better but still gets hotter on the passenger side, I took it back and they thought it might be the flexi hose, but when they inspected that they said it was ok and it needs a new caliper.

Does that sound reasonable? I wish that they had checked it properly at first and I would have thought they would have been able to see that the caliper was seized.

Not always.Calipers can very temperamental.sometimes they stick,sometimes they don't.Having said that,the fact that one side was hotter than the other could be a clue.On the plus side,parts for these are very cheap,so not too much of an issue.
