You will have to replace the caliper.

Either a reman or with a new unit.

Like said above you'll need a new caliper. Check out www. Rockauto. Com They have great prices. And they might offer a core charge so if you return your old caliper you'll get $ back. As far as how long it will take. It shouldn't take over an hour or two to do both brakes better yet just one side.
