check that the cables are free. you can by new calipers for next to nothing, when fitting they can be a bit of a ass to bleed so dont fix to the caliper mounting as the air needs to be shaken to the bleed nipple as it sits at a funny angle,make sure u have a gap of around 0.5 mm between the piston and the pads before under going any work.
