SOURCE: How do I change the rear disc brakes? How do you get the piston to go in?

First you should think about getting a repair manual. These will have detailed instructions complete with pictures and safety warnings. If you can't spend the $20 on a manual then here is what you need to do.

Just so you know I have done this on my 1994 Accord so there may be specific operations that differ on a 1998. I can give you some good general instructions. Also read through all the instructions before beginning.

Open the hood and take the cover off of the master cylinder reservoir. This will release the hydraulic pressure in the brake system. Remove the covers from both rear wheels and loosen the lug nuts, but do not remove them. Block both front wheels and release the parking brake. Jack the vehicle up one side at time and put the vehicle on jack stands. Remove both rear wheels. When replacing the pads you must do both sides of the car. Complete one side of the car before going to the other. This way you have a reference if you forget how something goes together.

With the wheel off you can now remove the brake caliper. You can remove the caliper shield if you like (it covers the rear portion of the caliper including the area where the parking brake is attached). Remove the caliper by removing the bolts holding it to the mounting bracket. My personal experience has been that these can be very tight. Make sure you are twisting them the correct direction and be careful to not round out the bolt. With the caliper removed you can now remove the brake pads and other hardware.

Remove both the inner and outer pads. If you are going to replace the pad retainers remove them as well. Prepare your new pads for installation. Install new pad retainers first if you removed them. Before putting the new pads on you should apply an anti squeal lubricant. Most auto parts stores will include this with your purchase of brake pads. On my Honda the inside and outside pads are different. The inside pad has a wear indicator on it. This looks like a flat doubled over piece of metal sticking out from the bottom of the pad. When the pad is installed the wear indicator is at the bottom.

Now you have to retract the piston in the caliper. On my Honda the piston is round with a groove in the shape of an X in the middle. Retract the piston by turning it clockwise. If you don't get the piston retracted the caliper won't fit over the new pads. Now replace the caliper. Make sure that the piston is oriented with the tab on the inner pad. The piston should slide over this tab until the tab rests in the center of the X. Secure the caliper by replace the bolts you removed. I found this difficult to do when replacing all the hardware. The new hardware will want to push the caliper out of place and lining up the holes for the bolts has to be exact. It is easiest to do this when the car is on a lift and you can work on the brakes at shoulder height. Now replace the caliper shield then do the other side.

You are now ready to test your work. Put the wheels back on and lower the car. Tighten the lug nuts again after you remove the jack. Put the cover back on the master cylinder reservoir. Pump the brakes several times to restore pressure. Put the parking brake on and start the car. Pump the brakes again and visually inspect the rear brakes for any leaking fluid (just for the off chance that you made a major goof). Also check the level of fluid in the master cylinder reservoir.

You should check your brakes in an isolated area before doing regular driving. I also like to check my job on the lug nuts after my first trip. You would be surprised how many shops and people forget to tighten them properly.

You may also want to check your parking brake. When you have the vehicle up on jack stands with the wheels on you should be able to rotate the wheels without any rubbing on the pads (of course the parking brake has to be off too). If there is any rubbing then your parking brake may be too tight, or you may have a problem with a caliper. Parking brake adjustment can be done easily as can replacement of a caliper. Make sure that your parking brake is not rubbing when released, and that is applying enough pressure when engaged.

SOURCE: 2008 honda accord replace rear brakes

no, 12mm wrench or ratchet on 12mm socket. the piston is tough to push back in. its a twist in type and you will need some force to push and twist the piston back in. - note rear brake pads wearing out on the new 08-09 accords are very common and if under 16-18 thousand miles it may be covered. honda knows about this problem

SOURCE: 2005 honda accord brake light does not work

Check the brake light switch - normally situated inside the car under the dashboard adjacent to the brake pedal. Check that the electrical connector is still attached and that there is a voltage supply to one of the pins. Disconnect the connector and using a multimeter on the resistance setting, check that the brake light switch operates as expected when the switch button is depressed.

I changed rear calipers on 94 Honda accord. Not getting fluid to one side now.

I was looking through your recent posts and i own a 95 honda accord and i had the same problem. thinking my brakes were bad and that my brake booster was bad. but just to find out my master cylinder was shot..
seems like you replaced your brakes for no reason as did i.
my master cylinder could have possibly went out. and could be a reason why no fluid is running on one side. hope this helps

In some cases the brake light will come on when the rear brake pads are getting worn down to low, check them if they appear to be lacking of enough brake material replace the rear shoes to make the light go out and restore adequate rear brake traction.

1994 Honda Accord- squeaky brakes

Could just be cheap brake pads. If you don't want to squeal, get a good quaility brake pad, and make sure the rotors are smooth.

Can I change my brakes to change my bolt pattern?

You will need to change the Hubs THEN the brakes to fit the hubs.
But changing the brakes only will NOT change the pattern
