Rear brakes on my 2004 Honda Accord

I have a 2004 Honda Accord which I replaced the rear brake pads on today (rear disc brakes). Now, the parking brake will not hold the vehicle very well. Also, the lever in the car pulls up further than it used to prior to this repair. Is there an adjustment for these that I missed ? Or will they self adjust after a few more stops ? The car seems to stop alright, it's just the parking brake that seems to be operating incorrectly.

Thanks for any help!

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

You can screw the rear caliper pistons back in, by using a needle nose pliers and turning the cross or x notch in a clockwise direction. both caliper pistons will turn the same way. The reason they "screw" out, is for positive locking pressure when the parking brake is engaged.

Brake lock-up


I suspect that you have front disc and rear drum brakes.You did not say which of your brakes are locking up. I suggest that if your front brakes are locking {skid} that means your rear brakes are not engaging. If your rear brakes are locking {skid} then I suggest you have problems with park brake or brake fluid leaking onto the rear shoes.
More info would help me help you. I will check back soon.

The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.

When backing up and sometimes turning right my brakes(?) make a squealing sound. Almost as though a pebble is caught and grinding on something. Honda 2004 accord-50.000miles. I was told I needed new brakes...


Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.
