I have a problem with my Hyundai Tucson 2007, the rear left brake rotor is wearing only half an inch from its center (inside and outside face). I have checked the left rear brake pads (in and out), I cleaned the caliper and the caliper mounting bracket, the pad retainers and the brake pads still rub only on the inner brake rotor. The brake rotor is rusted 1 inch from the outer edge on the inside and the outside. What could be the problem?

i noticed two more problems, maybe the cause: 1. the caliper body moves, almost 0,03 inches / 1 millimeter, along the arrow depicted in the picture.

3. the distance between caliper bracket frame and the brake rotor hub is less on the left side of the car where i have the problem, than on the right side of the car
