Exclamation rear brakes binding,

Rear caliper binding on. I will replace tomorrow, what causes the caliper to jam up ? fitted new discs 12 weeks ago and caliper fine then. Any ideas,

wheel heating up due to caliper jaming up can the heat have warped the disc ??

It will be the slidepins as said. Pushing everything back when you did the disc change will have upset the gunge and made them stick. About 40 mins work with some cleaner and coppaslip will fix it.
