    Which bolt? Are you just doing pads/rotors or replacing calipers too?

    sounds like your e-brake may be sticking. you can try to pull on it and release it a few times and see if it loosens up.

    If your e-brake cable is sticking and causing the rubbing it may be possible to get it to unstick. Try grabbing the outer cable near the wheel and move it around. It seems to help by spraying it (if the outer cable is not rubber coated) down with penetrating oil, and a little white lithium grease by the end of the outer cable on the inner cable. Let it soak a day or so and spray it down again. Try working it on and off and look and see if it's moving or sticking still. If it's hopelessly stuck then replacement is the only fix. But if you've got some time the penetrating oil and moving around the outer cable can get them unstuck.
