Thanks,
I thought about trying the brake cleaner, but I have no way to remove the wheel and if I could spray the cleaner onto the affected area where do you think the contaminated residue wold end up.

If the grease in just on the surface, clean it off with a brake cleaner. If is has been of there for an unknown period, better to replace the brake pads (both sides). But you need to find the source of the grease. More than likely you have a bad grease seal on that side.

If it were mine, I'd pull the brakes on both sides, get the rotors cur, clean and grease the bearings, install new grease seals and you will have the rig set for the road.
