Laguna II front brakes

I am new so HELLO to all! I have a problem with the front passenger side front brake. The piston is sticking on and the brake disc is getting very hot. I live in France so for me the issue is more about language and getting a good deal when visiting repair centres. Any way I am quite an enthusiastic DIY'r and have a couple of motorbikes which I maintain myself so I have some mechanical understanding. My question is should I just send off and get a couple of new brake calipers and replace them both myself or would I be better going to a French quick fit type place? If it is easy enough for the job to be done by myself I would give it a go but if its a more difficult job I will go to the shop. Any advice would be most welcome.

Re: Laguna II front brakes

The calipers slide on pins - it's possible one or both have seized. It would be best to find the exact problem before going any further.
