Question about 2006 Acura TSX
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
