Question about 1999 Acura TL
I have not work on brakes for some time and paid for repairs. I have two Acura's and wanted to know if there are special tools required and if there is any documentation and where that would assist in the replacement.
The one site indicated
removal of the brake caliber was either two bolts and or allen bolts. And to tie up system to prevent any brake line damage.
Remove the entire pad assembly and install new parts
Use seat clamp to return piston
Please provide any direction that maybe helpful Regards

Cut band clamp. use tie wrap. Special tool to remove inner tie rod. Autozone or others have them to rent. Must align after replacement

hydro...you ever get brain lock...or is it hydrolock?
Mad guy...Disconnect the caliper from the brakeline. If caliper retracts you have an internally failed line (rubber hose). if it does not retract, caliper piston may be frozen, or the piston cocked in the bore while you were pushing it back in. If that's the case you can rebuild it, but the price on most reman calipers is low so you may consider replacing it.If the ont on the opposite side si balky, replace both.

You must be very careful or this brake job will get very costly, depending on the brake system on this car, one you may have the caliper type that you need to use a tool that turns the caliper piston while it slowly compresses it, then you may have the style caliper with electronic praking brake actuator then you will need a scan tool to do the job, hopefully you did not damage the piston,hope this helps,if theres a small module box on the caliper then you will need scan tool. if it just the caliper with a emergency brake cable going to it then you need the tool that turns the piston by the notches on the face of piston.
