    Is it the actual Brake Calipers ?
    or
    The Hand Brake Shoes ?

    If its the Calipers -
    Remove the Calipers,
    Clean the Piston and Socket,
    Install caliper service Kits "carefully",
    Bleed the Brakes,
    Adjust your Handbrake shoes,
    Job done.

    PS: Caliper Kits are available and not to expensive,
    Most of all, take your time so you don't damage the piston and piston boots.
