give the caliper a right good clean.

Remove the calliper (might be easier removing the rear wheel) remove the old pads. Get some brake cleaner from local bike shop/halfords. Spray around the pistons and give a good clean with a toothbrush also clean up the retaining pin with emery paper. Make sure the calliper slides OK. Re-fit the new pads use brake grease on the back of them and the retaining pin, re-fit the calliper. Then bleed the brake until you have changed all the fluid. Should be good as new.

DON NOT TOUCH THE REAR BRAKE LEAVER WHILE THE CALLIPER IS OFF.
