you can easily change out the caliper yourself IF that's the problem. Unbolt the caliper and remove the pads. If the pads look severely worn then just replace them and it should fix the prob. If the pads are ok, try pushing the piston back into the caliper and have someone step on the pedal while you watch the piston come back out to check for proper operation. (fronts use a c-clamp, rears must be "screwed" in clock-wise) removing the brake fluid res. cap will make it easier to push in, but make sure it's back on b4 pressing on the pedal.
if the piston has trouble moving in and out or looks crooked, replace the caliper and bleed the brakes.
i replaced a rear seized caliper on my teg, cost about $40 (maybe $60, don't remember) and less than an hour, don't go to a shop and get ripped off.
