I sounds like your "seized caliper" actually had a rock stuck in it. Seen
it many times on many different cars. Back up, and the rock falls out. A
caliper that is well and truly seized has to come off the car and be
cleaned up. New pistons may be needed. I had a Lotus caliper seized so
badly it went to parts heaven, as no power at my disposal could get the
piston to move. Stainless pistons help eliminate such problems.
