    If you have disk brakes, you need a c clamp. If you have shoes, you need a wheel cylinder compression tool.

Chalk the front wheels, car is on jackstands i hope, release the handbrake, use the old pad with a c- clamp to compress the pistion on the caliper, install new pads. may have to take the cap off the master cylinder, if none of this works, open the bleeder valve, and compress the piston, rebleed the caliper.

I want to change the rear brake pads on my Honda Ballade Luxline 1994, 1500. How do I "push back" the cylinder (piston) that applies pressure to the pads? This needs to be done in order to fit the n


you need to get what is called a C clamp this applies pressure to the piston, but before using that, take one of the old brake pads and use it along with the c clamp that should work

I removed the rotor and brake pads. but when going to change the pads I can not get the piston to go back far enough to put the new ones in. How do you get the piston to push back in order to put the brake...


You will have to use a c-clamp or brake piston compressing tool to get that piston back in, while you have the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir cap off.

How do i get the rear brake pistons to go back to install new brake pads?


you will want to use a C-clamp for this. Take the c-clamp and an old brake pad, put the pad against the piston and the non-mobile end of the c-clamp on the back of the caliper. Turn the moving portion of the C-clamp in until it pushes the pad into the piston, and pushes the piston completely into the caliper. I hope this helps.

First take of the caliper. Once you do that, take off the old pads. To get the piston pushed back, you have to turn the piston clockwise and push it in simataniously.

Just taken the old brake pads off the car and the pistons wont move in order to get the new pads on


With the new pads in place, loosen the bleeder valve a few turns while applying pressure to the pads. A small amount of brake fluid will likely spray out as the pads and pistons move, so have a pan or a rag ready. Once the pads are flush with the edges of the caliper, retighten the valve - making sure that the pads don't move.

Need to change my brake pads


I don't know if you have done this yet, but you have to push the piston on the caliper back in before you can set the new pads.  The piston pushes further and further out as the old pads wear down.  All you need is a larger C-clamp and a piece of wood or even the old pad and you can push the piston back in.  Make sure that you take the top off of your brake fluid resevoir before you try to push it back in.  You will also find a bleeder on each caliper to bleed any air that is trapped before you start using the car.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Good luck!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

Rear brake calipers


A big pair of channel locks will collaspe the caliper but it does take some muscle or you can release the brake line nut and releave the pressure but then you would have to bleed the brakes.
