Replace it, the hardware, and the rubber hose going to it. HTH. -Jim

Best practice would be to replace them both - in theory, if one has gone bad, the other is probably going to fail soon too. Flush out the brake system with lots of fresh, new brake fluid too. Take a good look at the rotors - if there's been a problem with the calipers, it's likely that the rotors have suffered too - usually overheated and warped.
