this is a CLOSED arrangement...the caliper slides are supposed to be lubed with lithium grease...the caliper itself is SEALED....wd would do nothing~

check for mis-alignment of the caliper slides...should be able to move about the slides~disassemble and inspect~

thank you for your help

if the slides are fine, chances are the caliper either needs replaced/rebuilt or the rubber brake line needs replaced.
