    this happened to me last week. if its just one brake being effected then probly just the caliper mate. take off the caliper and see if the piston moves, if not then its time for a new caliper. sometimes when the pads run really low the caliper has to work at full extent and is prone to seize

    it could be the caliper the sliders and even the pads seizing in the carrier.
    your best bet is to take it apart and free everything off and see if the piston pushes back.
    you can take the piston out of the caliper if its that bad to clean it all up.
