Question about 1986 Honda Accord
Remove the cap from the brake fluid reservoir.
Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the front of the vehicle and support it securely.
Remove the front wheels. Work on one at a time, using the assembled brake for reference as you do the other one.
Make sure your disc is okay, and that you just need pads.
Push the piston back into the bore to provide room for the new brake pads (a big C-clamp will do the job, but as you tighten it, make sure that you reservoir doesn’t overflow).
Clean off everything involving the calipers.
Remove the lower caliper bolt and pivot the caliper up, off the brake pads.
Slide the pads and shims out of the caliper mounting bracket.
Remove the anti-rattle springs.
Before you install new pads, apply a coat of anti-squeal compound to the backing plates.
Smear a little silicon grease on the springs.
Install the inner pad (the one with the wear indicator) and shim in the mounting bracket.
Install the outer pad and shim.
Swing the caliper down into position and tighten the mounting bolt and torque them.
Torque for the 1986 is:
Front caliper mounting bolts: 33.
Front caliper bracket bolts: 53.
When you have it all together, press your brake pedal a couple times to make sure the pads are meeting the rotor.
Hope this helps you.

Block and jack up the wheel take it off there are several different types of retainers some have a split pin which you withdraw to free the disc pads outher ones have a spring clip you may find that y will have to press the hyd cylinder back to fit the new ones as the cylinder has moved out to alow for wear on the old ones while u have it striped down check for any leaks on the wheel cylinder also coat the hyd cylinder with gold grease this will protect it alow about 20min a wheel good luck
