Easy as Pie!

Just jack up that side and spin the wheel, it should spin quite freely. Then hit the brakes & try it again - if it doesn't want to spin easy then, the caliper is hanging up.

The way the pads hang in the holder they shouldn't hang up themselves, but you should scrape any rust off that area before installing new ones 'cause they will be sitting in a different area than the old ones, and you want the whole surface smooth so they can move easily.

luck!
