SOURCE: 2005 Acura tl brake replacement
The Brembos that come on Type S/Manual models wear fast. I've changed them at 20,000 miles. They are expensive also.
Non-Type S/Manual models I have seen go 80,000 miles. The biggest factor on brake wear is how the vehicle is driven.
At 50,000 miles I would have them inspected. Depending on where you go, make sure you get an accurate measurement of both pads (inboard and outboard). 2mm is the service limit and about that time the indicators start making noise, but not always. Most indepent shops are going to sell you brake pads at 4mm. That's another 10,000 miles at least you could have driven on them.
Never replace just the brake pads, resurface or replace the rotors. The uneven surfaces of the rotor will cause your new pads to wear incorrectly and possibly cause brake noise. Most aftermarket pads will cause a squeel.

you have to open the trunk and remove the carpet from the inside and you will see the bolts from the backside holding the light on. Remove these nuts and slowly pull the light out and you will see that the bulbs are being held in. You have to turn the lights counter clockwise and pull the lights out of the taillight. Jus push replace with new light and do the steps in reverse to put back on! Enjoy

you need a 6 inch extension, short 3/8 ratchet, 5/8 plug socket, 3/8 swivel "u" joint, (sold at sears) 8mm 1/4 drive socket deep well and 1/4 inch ratchet.
find the coil packs (6 total, three in each head.)
remove the two retaining nuts holding each coil pack using 1/4 8mm socket and ratchet.
twist the pack to break the sticking boot below.
pull up (be careful to not rip the boots however it may still happen but rare.)
remove coil packs, the rear is a little more difficult with the intake.
use 6" extension and u joint and ratchet to remove plugs and replace.
reverse order to assemble. Good luck, and hoped this helped.

The easiest way to remove the radio from a 1997 Acura TL is from the front. Assuming you know your anti-theft radio code, disconnect the negative side of your battery. See the last paragraph if you have lost your anti-theft radio code.
Next, remove the plastic wood trim from the dashboard surrounding the radio. To do this open the glove box, reach up inside and push out on one of clips holding the wood trim, as it comes loose grasp the trim from the front and carefully pull the trim until each clip unsnaps from the dash. The attached Heater/AC control panel above the radio comes off with the wood trim, so just unclip the 2 wire harnesses from the back and set trim panel aside.
Next, using a phillips screw driver, remove the 4 screws holding the black plastic radio frame into the dash, then pull the radio forward to remove it. Disconnect the 2 wire harnesses and antenna cable from the back of the radio to complete the removal. If you are putting in a replacement radio, just loosen the two small bolts holding the radio on the back of the frame, and then slide the radio out of the frame.
