How do you change the rear brake pads on a 2006 Honda Civic Ex.

It's a 2006 Honda Civic Ex with rear disc brakes. We can get the calliper off but when we assemble it we can't push the piston back in.

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!

I know they make a tool for everything, but I got the piston to retract by using a large screw driver and truning it back in. Took 5 minutes for both.

Now I've changed rubber brake hose and hard line to the T on rear axle, bled system and left rear brake still drags. All new pads and rotors all around and new calipers in rear. And great pedal.


the callipers actually slide on two pins that are part of the mount to the axle. this sliding action allows the callipers to centralize over the rotor disc
if you are experiencing a dragging brake then remove the pads and see if you can slide the calliper on those pins
if not you will have to remove the pins and clean the rust and gunk out of the holes in the calliper
they do rust up and seize which gives dragging brakes especially after fitting new pads.

2006 Honda Civic rear brake shoe replacement, can't get drum back on after shoe replacement?


there is an adjustment rod that adjusts the brake shoes out as they wear. so your parking break will work. When you install new pads, they are larger diameter than the old pads you removed, so you need to turn the adjustment rod all the way back in untill the brake drums only drag slightly. It is a good idea to clean and lubricate this adjustment rod assembly when you do a brake job.

Honda civic ex 2001 parking brake light stays on then goes off


Replace rear brake pads. If that doesn't help, remove the plastic console around the parking brake lever and adjust the pull on the lever. It's probably so loose that it's trigger the light.

This is not normal, looks like someone accidentally drove several miles with the brake on.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

1999 honda accord ex v6


The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.
