Some calipers have pistons in them that need to be screwed back in that requires a special tool.can be picked up at your local parts store fairly cheaply

High picthed whine in my crv

Chances are exceedingly good that the brake pads need to be replaced. There is a little metal tab that touches the face of the rotor when the pad is almost worn out.
I would suggest that you have the brakes looked at before using the vehicle much more as maintenance is much less expensive than repair.

Rear brakes

If the emergency brake is built into the caliper this is something that will require special tools and knowledge to do it correctly. You wont save that much. Some shops will do a "pad slap" for cheap.

If it isn't and I am sorry as I don't remember, then no, you will not need any special tools besides some metric wrenches/sockets, a "c" clamp for compressing the calipers. once again, you would be better off finding a shop that will do a "pad slap" as the time you spend isn't worth the labor you'll save...

but you want a step by step, you tube has multiple videos pertaining to this subject and you can imagine how much typing would need to be done to explain what a 10 minute video will tell you

2007 crv rear brakes. can i use c-clamp to cmpress piston or do i need special tool? thanks

Put the old rear side pad back on(the one that sits atop the piston) and then use the c-clamp to slowly push the piston back can remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir to relieve pressure and make it a bit easier

Do i need a special tool to change front brakes

Pads only ! No special Tools other than racket and socket. Rotors I recommend sending the job to a repair shop. This is challenging.

Brakes on 2002 Honda CRV

It sounds like there is a problem with the current calipers, it would be cheaper to try replacing the current ones with a new one NOT FROM HONDA. buy an aftermarket caliper and try that. Dealerships will try to screw you over and take money from you when its not necessary.

It all depends on what type, some are bolts, some are torx type, and some are allen wrench type.
On the back pads you need a special tool to press in the piston, cause the back ones need to be turned in, not pressed in like the front. At any rate, the bolts are metric.

Need to replace Discs and left rear rotor, what tools are needed?

Once the wheels are off you will need metric sockets and possibly metric wrenches.I believe the sizes are 10mm in rear to get the calipers off and 13mm in front. but have a range of metric sockets available. You will also need a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers to compress the caliper piston back into the caliper on the front and rear befoer installing the new brake pads and caliper back onto the vehicle.
Good luck with the repair.

300zx front brakes.

Nothing more special than a basic metric socket set, a good size C-clamp, and maybe a screwdriver. Remove the wheel and unbolt the caliper from the hub (two bolts on the backside, I believe 17mm). Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap. Slide the caliper off the rotor and remove the outer pad. Use the C-clamp against the inner pad to compress the pistons back into the caliper to provide clearance for the new, thicker pads to clear the rotor. Do the same for the outer pistons. Install the new pads, remount the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Replace the fluid cap, pump up the brake pedal for pressure, then take it out and bed the pads in with several back to back stops from 30mph with steady, even pressure on the pedal. You'll be good to go at that point.
