sounds like your piston is siezed on one side. take the caliper apart and used compressed air to push the piston out. new piston kit costs around $12.00.

Undo the bolts that hold the caliper together, Then use the air on the side you want to remove. There will be instructions with the rebuild kit and it will make sense once you take it apart.

So many freaks, so few circuses.
