front caliper hose replacement grancaravan 96

front caliper hose replacement is the next step, did the caliper and still have intermittent cling on driver side front.
Is this a straight forward swap out does anyone know what to look for whether it has a trick or two involved?
I found the hose online and also wonder if there are any parts left out doing this beyond fluid of course and the two washes shipped with.
Thanks in advance,

I had both calipers refuse to release on my '88 about ten years ago. One side got so hot it melted a hubcap!

Turned out that the pistons in the originals were a composit and would swell over the years until they didn't move freely. Installed new calipers which have metal pistons and have had no further problems.
