Changing the brake pads on a vehicle with calipers if very easy in comparison to drum brake. You, unless you have the strength will need a tool to compress the caliper piston to make room for the new pads to fit over the caliper. After that it is a matter of two bolts to put the caliper back on and bleed the brakes.
For the Honda civic 2006, a 24 inch windshield wiper is needed for the passenger side and 28 inch windshield is needed for the driver side.------------------------------------------------------------------------ ELM 327 1.5V USB CAN-BUS Scanner
Disconnect the negative battery cable, unplug the smal wire from the starter, remove the nut that holds the large wire to the starter. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter to the transmission.
It's a pretty simple job and only requires basic hand tools.
front is as same as gm, 2 on caliper do not forget to press caliper pistons back into themselves, then just take pads out and replace then, install and start car and press on brake to bring pressure back into caliper
There is a special tool to press the rear brake caliper back in on you vehicle. You can "borrow" it from Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. Basically because of the parking brake, you have to press the caliper back in and at the same time screw it in. I know that might sound confussing but when you see the tool they will loan you, it will make sense. It's pretty easy to do with the right tools. I have however taken the hard route before and used a C clamp and pair of needle nose to get it worked out. Hope this helps. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.
Remove the large nut on the end of the axle. Remove the outer tie rod end. Remove the upper spindle mount. There is a cover over the bolt. Remove the brake caliper and the lower ball joint and disconnect speed sensor if equipped. Remove spindle and pull the axle out. You may need a large flat head screw driver to pop the sxle out of the transaxle.
