Question about 1987 Honda Civic
Cannot return caliper piston (rear) enough to locate new brake pads, is there any adjustment on the caliper for the handbrake to allow the piston to return
Use a G clamp to put slight pressure on piston and then turn piston with a pair of water pump grips half a turn then pressure G clamp again
slow job without the right tool but it can be done
