If it will not retract then you are going to have to replace it as it is seized or the fluid is not being allowed to return.

Here is a guide that will help replace the brakes and caliper as you will most likely need to replace both while you are there:

Below is the process for this as well from the manual. Let us know if you have other questions. Thanks
