Phil once again was correct (what else is new...): the SOB does not
fully release the parking brake lever. 
If I pull the e-brake and release it, the wheel is impossible to spin by
If I push the lever with a pry bar to the rest limiter the wheel could
be spun by hand.
Evidently the caliper itself is working fine, no need to spend $240 for
a new or $78 for a rebuilt one.

Now the question is - where am I gonna get the return springs from the
Köln-made Granada?
