How to replace the REar Brake on Acura TSX 2006 ??

I have a TSX 2006 with 41 k miles, my rear brake is making noise when I push the brake. I checked it and seeing that the break is worn out (10% left).
I got all the parts needed to replace it myself (learn and save a few bucks you know)
Now the problem is : I can't get the Caliber to open, I got the 2 x 12mm screws to open but I can't get the Caliper out.
does anybody know the tricks??

I really appreciate it.

Hi,welcome to fix ya. remove the clamp on the brake flex line attached to the swing arm and the caliper will pull right off. be sure to turn and push to retract the caliper .And to line the tab on the pad with the slot on the piston.

Problem I've had with all kinds of calipers (Ford,Honda,Toyota,etc.). try taking the master cylinder cap off under the hood to help it releave some pressure. Then the best I know is to take an extra long flat head to the top and bottom of the caliper. Vertical in the wheel well. Worst case get a tack hammer and gently tap the paralell screwdriver for leverage. As well make sure you have a tool to push the caliper open before replacing new pads in. a large 'C'-clamp should do well. all 4 should take a little over and hour with out air tools

I have a 99" Ford Windstar LX, When I press on the brakes the pedal shakes and it makes a grinding noise after driving a few miles the abs light goes on. I have replaced, pads, rotors, master cylinder,...


if you replaced all the brake parts I would check your hub bearings and cv axels if the noise is coming from front if the noise is in the rear check your e brake shoes located inside of the rear brake rotors if u have disc rear brakes or your rear brake bearings .. hope this helps

you probably should change the transmission fluid and filter with that many miles on it.

I was quoted $275 to replace the rear brakes on my 2005 TSX. Is that a fair price? I have about 88k miles


That is pretty high. If they replaced the pads(using ceramic pads which are top of the line) replacing rotors and rear brake hardware kit, parts should be about $120 so that means $155 for labor when the job would only take about an hour at the most.

New brakes needed on 2005 TSX with 23K miles


Thats low mileage for an 05...congrats. It is also way way low to be needing rear brakes!!!, The front brakes ALWAYS need replacement before the rear, unless you have a malfunction...or have been driving with the emergency brake on, (the emergency brake just works on the rear). Also, unless the brakes have been metal on metal, no way you should need new rear rotors with that mileage...I realize you trust your dealer, but, I'd get a 2nd opinion. As for the driving, sure, driving habits have a bearing on brake wear, and yes, you have probably done alot of stop and start, but probably at low speeds also. At any rate, you should not be replacing rear pads and certainly not rotors with 23K...unless there is another problem..Hope this helps!

After 20 miles rear brakes tighten up and makes thumping noise


It is probably the flexible rubber brake line that runs from the axle to the metal brake line on the frame. When these become old they don't allow the brake fluid pressure to reduce when the brake is released.

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.

Rear wheel/brake noise


first check condition of discs and pads if all is good drive and pull up handbrake slowly to see if its the handbrake shoes making the noise if still a problem will most probably be rear wheel bearings
