Not in the caliper,the pressure relieve port is in the master cylinder.Its a really tiny hole.
Sheesh.Now I can't remember if its the rear master or the front one that operates the left.
I suppose,just to be sure,I'd flush both and clean the ports.Ill bet the brakes haven't been serviced in the last few years.?
A less common problem is a collapsing brake line.

It's the foot brake that operates the left front and rear. The hand does the right front as setting on the bike.
