    Rear Caliper help

    My rear drivers side caliper on my 03 WRX wagon has no movement. The caliper and flex hose has been replaced as well as the master cylinder and still no movement. Could it be the line going back to it? If so how do I get to it? The car stops great still and does no pull at all while slowing down but the caliper isn't grabbing. The rotor is surface rusted everywhere. What do you guys think?
    When in doubt, flat out.

    You are positive the piston isn't moving? Have you tried pushing it back into the caliper?

    Have you checked the sliders? Do they move as they should?

    The brake line is held in under the car with plastic clips. You simply have to follow it forward from the caliper. I also doubt it is the problem.

    When you replaced the caliper and hose you had to have bled the brakes (if you didn't, there's your problem), if fluid moved through the lines just fine when depressing the brake pedal, it would seem that the caliper is the issue again, not the lines.
