Re: Renault megane mk1 brake caliper question

1st! Check the slider pins are clean and lubricated, this is often a common cause of uneven brake application. Cheapest option.
2nd! check the piston can retracts (rotates as well as retracting) Check condition of seals (often the cause of piston problems).

You can get a piston overhaul kit, but honestly, for slightly more expense and less trouble, you can get a calliper with piston etc for slightly more. Just need to fit it and bleed it (which you would need to do after overhauling the old one).
