Jack the vihicle up and put blocks,remove wheels and undo bolt on the caliper,make sure to push piston slowly back to open enough space for new pads,fit new pads and do the same other side.if brake fluid overflows from the resouvoir dnt worry,just clean with water only as brakefluid reacts wiv pait,make sure you pump the paddle before driving off,it may feel spongy for a short while not to worry.

My hondaaccord shake when brakes .i just bought it. the guy told me he change brakepads

He changed the brakepads with worn rotors. You need to get your rotors turned. The old brakepads had worn down in a specific shape with how the rotors have worn down. If the rotors were worn down enough because of failure to change the pads in time, then new pads will skip along the surface of the rotor from which they clamp down on, causing the shaking you feel when braking. Go get it done at a shop, it shouldn't be much...somewhere in the range of $20 per rotor depending on the shop you go to.

Brake light comes on sporadically

Usually this means a piece of brakepad is loose and floating against the rotor. It can also mean there is rust or debris around the ABS sensors or in the emergency brakes.

You need to inspect the brakepads.

I have a 2008 Accord with 24,000 miles and have been told the back brake pads need to be replaced. When I called my dealer, I was told that Honda knew there was a problem but did not know what was causing...

Yes, your vehicle needs to use the semi-metal brake pads.

Asbestos has been the best brakepad material; however, asbestos was outlawed last decade. Currently, the best is brakepad is semi-metal. The brakepad is impregnated with brass filings.

All semi-metal brakepads carry a limited lifetime warranty against wear. Purchase a set and compare to the ones on your vehicle.
