Setting it on fire will only increase the over heating problem! You need to work backwards from the caliper, is the hose new? they can collapse internally and allow fluid to pass to the caliper but not return.

Yeah it’s a tourer! No hose isn’t new that’s prob the only thing I haven’t don’t lol
As stated, the hose is probably KAPUTT. the caliper will need purging as well due to dirt getting in, take the bleed nipple out and give the pedal a couple of swift pumps, a clean basin to catch the fluid will show any muck that is ejected. Failing that removing and refitting the piston is a "nightmare" job.

Re the pads, are they able to "rattle" in the hangers, most need the ends filing off due to too much paint on them,

I have also found that the little stainless steel plates that sit in the caliper carrier get pushed out by corrosion swelling behind them, When I first got my Tourer I removed the carriers and sanded all the corrosion off the area behind the plates and they haven't given any trouble yet, touch wood.
I'd rather the pads were slightly loose then binding in the carrier as the piston return is so slight all it is is the action of the piston seals pulling back slightly.If they bind at all they can overheat at speed and that's not good for anything.

Had a similar issue, replaced the hose as the first solution and problem solved.

I had the same seizing problem and thought I needed a new caliper. The local mechanic tried replacing the sliders and it worked. Cheap fix.

seems like you have a sticky caliper, options are to refurb or replace i would not buy parts from euro car parts as many people have had issues
i used them to purchase refurbed calipers.
hope that helps post back and let us know so that others can benefit from the information
