2006 WK Brake Pads Sticking

I just started hearing the noise Sunday night. It sounds like the pads aren't completely coming off the rotors. Same thing happened again today. I washed it( went wheeling a week ago ) thinking there could have been some mud that might have fallen in there. The noise went away on the way to the car wash. Haven't heard it since, but the rotors are still very hot even after a 10 minute drive. I'm not sure what is the problem, does anyone have any ideas?

Sticking caliper. one or both of the pistons is siezing. fairly common problem . if you drive for 10-15 min and your spit sizzles on the rotor , it's pretty much a guarantee . You can try buying a rebuild kit or taking them apart and cleaning , but for me it's easier and quicker just to replace it .

Yea definitely sounds like a caliper issue. Doesn't hurt to try and clean the pistons and everything. If you use disc brake quiet, I've seen guys who seem to think that it's a good idea to cover the WHOLE backside of the pad, and all this does is attract all kinds of dirt and other junk that can gum up your calipers. I would try and clean them myself first, but like vzjwk said, it's no chore to just go ahead and replace them if you want.

What would be a good replacement caliper or even an upgrade?

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I'm going to try to take the wheels off tonight and clean around the area. Should the rotors be too hot to touch after a 2 mile drive? 35-50mph. I drove home from work and I checked on the rotors and the ones I touched were too hot to touch.

Tried driving my other WK and the same thing - brakes were too hot to touch. I tried the spit suggestion. It didn't crackle, so I'm thinking it was just some dirt/mud screwing with my brakes.
