    If the pads were that low, some of the metal on the piston may have been exposed and resulted in a layer of rust that prevents the piston from retracting fully.
    Check the piston boot for tears and also peel it back to look for rust on the caliper piston. You can then progress with a rust dissolver to get you by for them moment, but a refurb of the caliper piston will be needed (easily done with a lathe).
