06 Elantra GLS front passenger wheel gets HOT

I have replaced two front rotors, brake pads, calipers and bleeded all. The driver side brake is fine but the passenger side brake ( wheel too ) gets really hot? so I double checked and everything looks fine. I also replaced new brake shoes on the rear drums. I replaced a new brake master cylinder because the old one was bad. I can't figure whats wrong with the passenger side brake? Could be the pins that needs to be cleaned and lubed?

So what could be the problems?

There are no driver-side or passenger-side cooling fans like that. Check your caliper pins. They could be stuck and not pumping. Did you lubricate them with new grease when you change brake pads? There are two different kinds of caliper pins on the brake: one is smooth and the other one is rigid. You might have switched.
Wheel bearings are sealed and won't leak before they are destroyed. If they are bad, the affected wheel will vibrate badly and get very noisier like jet engine as speed increases. I had both of my front wheel bearings replaced.
