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

go into the truck. there are 2 screws holding the stop light cover. it is at a place hard to get you hands in.

i am assuming you are talking about drum brakes. and the drum is not coming off easily. as the drums wear they do not ride on the very outside which will cause a ridge to form and make it hard to remove them you just have to pry them off but pry evenly on two sides opposite of each other at the same time

yes many problems, if you have to ask don't do it when it comes to struts. unless you get what is called quick struts.. changing regular struts is very dangerous if yo do not have the propper training or tools. for your own safety have a reputable shop do them for you

Check the space gap between the brake lever to the brake switch.
Also check the connector to the brake switch.
You have to look under the dash carefully.
These is not too much room under there.
Just ran you hand along the brake paddle.
Press the brake switch by hand and see is brake light go on.
Check all connectors for corrosion.
