I would remove the cap to the master cylinder, then barely crack the bleeder valve. after that then you can compress the caliper with a c clamp. be careful, your gonna lose some brake fluid.

I am the original owner of my 1998 Honda Prelude, which has 90,000 miles. It has not been driven much recently due to illness so I brought it to a mechanic to check it out. He says it needs rear rotors and...

No! It doesn't sound right. I can see the calipers developing leaks depending on the weather there, but not the rotors. So either you already had bad brakes before it was parked or someone needs to give the mechanic a reality check.

BTW: Telling mechanics upfront that you want all parts that they replaced returned to you, will make it harder for them to slide something past you.

Unfortinatly your pads and rotors may have had nothing to do with this. It sounds like either really bad rear wheel cylinders or a bad master cylinder. I would tell you the master cylinder is the problem though.

Iv cleaned the brakes and cilinderon my honda civic coupe v reg but the brake is not releasing itself

If ft.brakes are sticking it should be calipers are bad 7 times out of 10...or some may have a ft.
metering valve.....but should be ft calipers sticking...sometimes the hose will go bad but normally it is calipers.....if it is the rear sticking the emergency might be slightly engaged or the rear brake
proportioning valve is bad......jack car up and see which wheels are freezing up by turning the wheel
round and round.see which one is hard to turn....if only one ft wheel is hard to turn change both calipers if hose's look good.if hose's are drycracked change them also because they will go bad internally....although it is normally the calipers.....calipers can be rebuilt has an o-ring around a piston that freezes....but sometimes the piston gets craters inside and you will waste time by trying to rebuild..

Rear brake caliper piston will not go back on Honda Prelude

Have you compressed the caliper all the way? To do so, use a large 'C' clamp, open the bleeder valve slightly, and compress it be tightening the clamp. It should now fit over the brake disk. Let me know it you need further help.

1992 Honda Prelude Si brake caliper piston prob

As your car has a handbrake fitted to the rear calipers,you will need a piston wind in tool to retract the piston fully back into the caliper as when you adjust your handbrake the piston automatically winds itself to the required position for usage without this tool you are getting nowhere,so get hold of a tool to do the job and you should not have problem unless the piston has totally siezed on the screw then you will have a problem being the only way to repair would to be a new or refurbished caliper.

How do I get the rear brake cylinder depress back in when putting on new brakes.

If it does not push back with a c-clamp,then it will turn to go back in,the right side,and the left side will turn either left,or right hand to go back in,depending on witch side you are working on.

2003 Honda Civic Si - Changing rear brake problem

Ford taurus's have the same setup on the rear calipers and it requires a special tool or persistance on your part with a pair of channels lock pliers and a c clamp. turn the piston clockwise as you press it in with a c clamp or get the tool mentioned below.

Harbor Freight has this special tool... found HERE

And yes, once you get the piston in it will come back out on it's own and yes will automatically readjust.

Rear brake calipers

A big pair of channel locks will collaspe the caliper but it does take some muscle or you can release the brake line nut and releave the pressure but then you would have to bleed the brakes.
