Renault Trafic Brakes

I've tried to search to no avail for information on how to strip, clean and reassemble the rear brake calipers on a 2010 Renault Trafic.

If you can help that would be great.

The handbrake wasn't working very well so I took the calipers off to look at the pads. Everything seemed OK, so I wound the pistons back in and put everything back together. Pressed the brake a few times and then applied the handbrake. It seemed to work better however one side (the left) isn't releasing completely! If you apply a little pressure to the lever on the caliper then it's ok but this is impractical for daily use.

It can't be much that needs to be done but I just need to know how to strip it safely and clean it up so it moves a little more freely.

All kinds of crap but not as much as there was after a robbery
