Sticking Rear Calliper.

A couple days ago my rear passenger side calliper began sticking after braking and is progressively getting worse (taking longer for it to free). Would the calliper be shot or is there a DIY fix that can be done? Any info/suggestions would be much appreciated.

My rear caliper began to stick on after the handbrake was tightened, after a couple of months (not a daily driver) it finally wore the pad down to nothing and ended up being changed. My neighbour is a mechanic and I think probably over tightened it but got me a new one for 110 fitted. Sorry if this is not what you were hoping to hear, as for DIY fix I'm sure someone else here maybe able to provide something for you

I'm sure this is a common problem on zr's.
I had to change 1 of mine when I bought the car but normally you can re grease the pins and have it working 100% again..

Check the actual handbrake mechanism is returning on the caliper. if not clean it up, lube and manually work it with a pair of pliers to get it free.
