Take the caliper apart and grease the Slide pins. There are two of them. When these get dried out it cause them to stick and not release the brake. When you pull the two halves of the caliper apart there will probably be dust in there. Clean it out and grease them up.

Hi,welcome to fix ya. remove the clamp on the brake flex line attached to the swing arm and the caliper will pull right off. be sure to turn and push to retract the caliper .And to line the tab on the pad with the slot on the piston.

try turning the caliper piston clockwise till it bottoms out.....use a screwdriver to turn the piston or purchase a caliper piston tool....

1. torque on the slide pins is about 25 to 30 ft lbs.
2. torque on caliper bracket to knuckle is 80 to 100 ft lbs
3. get the best pad you can get ,its an Acura . I recommend Bendix import quiet ceramic pads.
4. ceramic = less noise/dust less stopping power
metalics= better stopping power/noisey lots of dust
