What method of bleeding did you use??

Are you saying that the rear passenger caliper can not stop the wheel from turning at all if so piston is frozen or if the car has a proportioning valve it might be bad or there is something in the line that is preventing fluid from getting to the caliper.

I will assume that you rebuild all of the calipers. If it were me I would pickup a pressure bleeder and rebleed the entire system, open up those bleeder valves and hit the calipers with a rubber mallet while bleeding.

After bleeding, pull the pads from each caliper, one caliper at a time and insert old pads that have less than 1/2 of brake material or 2 pieces of wood between the rotor and piston. Have some GENTLY apply the brakes so that the pistons are forced out of the calipers further than with the newer pads. Carefully press the pistons back in the caliper and re-install the new pads.

If that doesn't help, you have problems beyond my abilities while at long distance.
