Draggin Brakes

Drivers front pads are dragging when the wheel is turned left. I pulled the wheel off and confirmed that it is that rotor. Rotor sounds a little tweaked but it isnt too bad. I didnt see any adjustment screws or anything? Is there a way to back it off a bit to get it to stop? the Haynes Repair Manual had nothing on it.

No adjustment there. Possibly a sticky caliper or the front unit/wheel bearing is wearing out.

So pull its off and see if there is anything gumming up the caliper and if not pull and yank on the rotor and see how loose the bearing is?

update pulled the wheel and caliber off. Nothing that was obviously gumming it up. Pulled and yanked on both the rotor and wheel, nothing seemed startling loose. Maybe the rotor is just more warped that i thought. going to check the bleed on the brakes. Don't know when it was last done and who knows maybe I'll git lucky.

Sounds like the brake lines are swollen shut on that side.
Pump the brakes up, and then release, open bleeder, is there pressure?
Yes, replace the brake lines.
No, look to a bad caliper...
