Question about 2001 Honda Civic
How do I replace rear brake pads on a honda civic 2001
Remove rear wheels, remove rear calipers there will be two ten or 13 mm bolts on the back,(DO NOT LOOSEN THE LITTLE BLEEDER NIPPLE WITH THE RUBBER CAP ON IT!) pry the calipers back and off the rotors ,remove the old pads and get a c-clamp or big channel lock pliers and squeeze the caliper pistons back into the bores until they stop, now if your rotors are badly scored or rusty this is the time to change them there will be one or two #3 phillips head screws holding each rotor, remove these( you may need an impact driver with a phillips bit and a hammer) pull off the old rotors and reinstall the new ones after cleaning the rust protection off of them with brake cleaner and cleaning the rust from the hub where they sit., pull the rubber boots back on the caliper slide pins and lube them with clear silicon grease till they move freely, now use black hi temp grease to lube where the pads sit on the brackets(after cleaning the brackets of rust and dirt) and lube the backs of the pads (not the friction side make sure these stay clean!!) now reassemble and enjoy you just saved yourself a couple hundred bucks from the shop !! -jeff
