REAR BRAKE PAD NOT RELEASING.

The outside rear brake pad (the one not operated by the cylinder) is not releasing and wearing against the disc. I imagine that the guide pins are probably jammed with dirt as they were tight to release when I changed the pads. Is it easy to get these pins out and clean/replace any parts? Is there any special set-up procedure after replacement? And have you a break down diagram of the rear brake caliper.

Thanks,
Lee.
