Exclamation rear caliper park brake sticking

Could it be lack of lubricant? I just redid the brakes a few weeks back and basically the handbrake cable shit itself. The mechanic replaced it while I was working and now that works but I can still feel it dragging in the asre end not to mention it starts to get really hot and make noise from the rear right caliper. Can I lubricate the assembly without haveing to redo the 'O' Rings and If I can, is high melt lithium grease ok to lubricate the screw on the rear caliper which operates Parkbrake? I posted this in the Ute forum as well since its an xh Ute.
