SOURCE: can't seem to bleed brakes
as long as it is foamy it indicates you have air trapped inside that one caliper make sure that the bleeder valve is closing all the way chances are you are sucking air back into the caliper through the bleeder or you have a leaking brake hose or even the caliper ccould be leaking, basicaly look for fluid leaks

It can be repaired. From what you have told me it coud be the clutch cable. At the worse it will be a new clutch. I hope you find this information helpful.

To bleed you brake system, you will need brake fluid, a jar, and a couple feet of small hose that fits tightly on the bleeder screws. You should not need to remove the tires to access the bleeder screws, but you may need to raise the vehicle a bit to access them.
To bleed the system, start with the right rear wheel. Put a couple inches of brake fluid in the jar, attach the hose to the bleeder screw, put the hose in the jar of brake fluid, then open the bleeder screw. Once the bleeder screw is open, pump the brake several times. Next, close the bleeder screw. After you close the bleeder screw, remove the hose and jar, then fill the master cylinder with brake fluid.
Repeat the steps going to the left rear second, right front third, and left front last.
Once you have bled the system your brakes should be tight and working nice.
I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

remove 2 caliper bolts, remove old pads. put new pads in there place, before installing the caliper, be sure to squeeze the piston back in the caliper otherwise it will not fit back over the new pads. than replace the caliper and the 2 mounting bolts.

Once the car is jacked up, remove the front tires, then whith a 12 wrench key, remove the bolt that is located on the rear side of the caliper, not the one holding the brake fluid line buth the one right next to it. Pry the brake pad holder off and then remove the brake pads themselves. You will need to press the caliper's piston in, to be able to fit new brake pads since new pads will be thicker.
