MY00 Impreza rs caliper seize

Noticed my brake was dragging and couldn’t determine if was the e-brake (drum) or disc brake sticking. Well I found out too late when the pad ran out of compound on the outer side and could see gouging in the rotors.

Goal was to diagnose the issue and get parts list. Meanwhile making the thing have more pad to drag out, basically buy time and make it work better than does now.

The caliper failed by corrosion / rust most likely making the piston not release after hydraulics squeeze it tight. Although this is more costly than it being parking brake(drum), I’m sort of relieved not from me playing in the snow
