The best thing for a do-it-yourselfer is buy a Chilton book for your van. It costs about $20 st the auto-parts store. It will show you step by step on how to do it correctly without damaging the brake caliper. Plus, it has info on everything you need to do other repairs.

You will need a 17MM Socket Or a 15MM socket depending on wheel size
Behind the calliper locate the two bolts, Not the bolts on the case around calliper , But on the calliper it'self then remove bolts and remove calliper replace pads, Put the bolts back tighten, And then brake pad change is complete.

Changing the front brake pads.

first off, you need to buy the break pads, break caliper spreader, and you need to know if the bolts have a allen wrench head or a torques head, you can find that out by turning your wheel all the way to the left after you remove the front left tire, take a small hand mirror and look on the back side of the calliper, once you know what it is, you need the socket or wrench that fits it, remove the bolts, then the calliper will pull off by wiggleing it off, then remove the outside pad, take the break calliper spreader and place it the way the break pad sat and screw it pushing the calliper cylinder back as far as possible, then take the calliper spreader off and remove the other pad, install the new pads into the break calliper and replace the calliper back onto the router, (the round disc the calliper was on) line up the holes on the calliper and replace the bolts.......once you have put the calliper back on you must pump the peddle untill they are hard again, about 3-6 times or untill you cant go to the floor anymore. once they are solid again, replace your tire and you should be good to go.....................hope this helps.

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.

How do i change front brake pads on 2007 honda odyssey

No, just a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the lower caliper bolt, swing the caliper up and slide the pads out. Compress the caliper piston with large slip joint pliers. Lubricate the pad ends where they touch the slides and install new pads.

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

01 Tiburon

Hello Hopeisananch

My favourite car (I have one) and I hope a pleasure to assist.

The Tiburon has brake pads all round and not brake shoes at the back with pads at the front like many other cars.

From your description I would suggest that the rear brake pads and/or callipers are responsible.

I would recommend replacing the rear pads as they may have become very worn over time causing them to rattle against the wheel disc.
The brake callipers are pretty simple to remove once the wheel is off. You will need to jack the car up and remove the lid from the brake fluid reservoir which can be found under the hood.
The calliper is secured by two bolts on each side, they can be released and then pull away the calliper from the wheel assembly making sure to support it whilst working on the pads so as not to stretch the brake pipe.
You will also need to push back the calliper piston using a calliper tool or block of wood. This is to make way for the new thicker brake pads.
The new pads can be replaced ensuring that you use copper grease where the brake pad arms rest inside the calliper but ****do not get copper grease ****onto the surface of the new brake pads or wheel disc.
You can then reassemble the calliper over the new pads and re-bolt tightly into place. You should use a torque wrench to the specified setting however a good solid hand tightening should be fine.
Then replace the wheel and be sure to replace the brake fluid reservoir cap.

Pads themselves are pretty cheap. You can also of course get a mechanic to do the work for you if you are unsure of the proceedure as your safety is after all paramount.

I myself would avoid main dealer charges for this type of work as they can be very expensive.
You may also find a tyre dealer in your area may offer you a free brake inspection and be able to complete the work at reasonable cost.

There is also a full pictorial guide here

My very best regards and happy motoring

Changing front brake pads

You shouldn't need to remove the calipers altogether just to replace the pads. You have remove the split pins or retaining springs on the old pads, then prize back the caliper pistons enough to remove them. Then push the pistons back some more enough to get the new pads in. Then reassemble and test.
