Default Front brake Lock up

Hi all,
Thanks in advance for your help.

Just got back from my fifth drive in my 93 ford ranger, and the front (passenger side) brake is locking up. When i got it i noticed the brakes were grabby, very little pedal travel. Today, is was more noticable. I tried not to use them, and would let it roll backwards and the brakes would seem to let go. Then, i was good until i used them again, and I would have to back up a ways to get to open up.

It was real hot when I got home !! Reel hottt!

Any help?
Jimi

The caliper bolts come loose on my 2003. Seems to be a common defect. Don't know if there is a fix...maybe lock washers or clevis pins.
