What problems are you having ? If it is sticking, it could be a brake hose that has deteriorated and swollen on the inside. If it is the original hose, I recommend replacing with a braided stainless steel hose. A braided hose will also let you use the brake lever to pump the piston out of the caliper so you can clean both.

The disk is « eating » the caliper ( sorry for the word « eating »)
