Verify that the slides move freely. Check to see if pistons will press back in. If piston won't go back in without excessive effort crack open the bleeder screw. Does it go back now? If so replace the hoses to them. (usually wise to replace as a set at this point) If the still don't press back Replace the caliper and any parts that may have been scorched from the caliper dragging and re-bleed the system. Double check to make sure the calipers retract. If not, re-address the brake hoses.
Do all of this assuming the level in the master cylinder is not over full or full of anything besides DOT-3 or Dot-4 brake fluid, and had not been replaced recently. If they have let me know and we can go from there! Hope this helps!
Was the caliper new or remanufactured? I ask because I've seen stranger things with reman calipers. Possibly not properly lubed when they put it together? Did the caliper come with a new bracket? Do the pads fit easily and move freely within the bracket itself?
I hear you there. I'm happy inside and out of the near zero temps here today helping people like yourself instead of busting my knuckles in the cold! Good luck and let me know how it works out!
