Front disc brakes getting hot

Hi. Thought I had the dreaded front left brake caliper problem, so changed this over Xmas. The disc is still getting hot ( more so than the front right)but not boiling, Any helpful suggestion of possible problems would be appreciated.
many thanks John. my FF is a 2006, AJ 4.4 V8 petrol

Brake hoses can collapse internally preventing fluid return so symptoms are similar to a sticking caliper 4.2 SC

thanks for suggestion. Had thought of this but assumed because they were replaced under recall in June 2015 they wouldn't have caused a problem but will replace just in case.

You may have moisture in your brake fluid at the caliper which can cause this. You could just try bleeding some fluid out and seeing if it is clean. 2011 4.4 TDV8 Vogue SE

I did bleed the system when changing the caliper but maybe not enough. It will get a full change when I replace the hose. cheers JT
