If only one side is dragging, jack that tire up and block the rear wheels, put car in neutral, if whell is actually locked or dragging, open the bleeder screw, does it spin freely? If yes replace the flex hose, if no, replace the caliper...If it was mine I would do both sides, they are the same age and generally in the same condition! If you do not have ABS brakes, the hill holder or PHV, holds pressure on the left front, and right rear, May work the same on ABS models too, not sure. Clutch could be out of ajustment, and ball inside the PHV may be stuck in a partially on position. The only way to tell is before you run the hose test, open the line at PHV that goes to the left front. if wheel spins, the PHV is NG, or clutch needs adjustment.
