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

When should you get your brakes on your honda civic replaced?

Whenever they don't seem to work properly. Are pulling to one side, or the pedal has too much travel, feels spongy, of are hard to apply. If they are disc brakes, when you start to hear squealing the pads are getting low, take it in for inspection and service at that time. Good idea to have them looked at every 10K during the oil changes etc., so you can detect any problems before it gets expensive to fix.

How to change back brack pads on a honda civic 2.2 diesel,d.cWc How to change Rear brake pads on honda accord

There are several Videos on how the service the rear brakes of the Accord... Do a search on the web - " 2005 honda accord rear brakes".
The most difficult part is removing the Rotors because the screws that hold the rotors on the hub can be difficult to remove. If the Rotors look OK, then you do not have to remove them to put new pads in, but if the Rotors have grooves or otherwise look worn, the they should be replaced. There are vidios on how the remove the Rotors, as well.

2006 Honda Civic rear brake shoe replacement, can't get drum back on after shoe replacement?

there is an adjustment rod that adjusts the brake shoes out as they wear. so your parking break will work. When you install new pads, they are larger diameter than the old pads you removed, so you need to turn the adjustment rod all the way back in untill the brake drums only drag slightly. It is a good idea to clean and lubricate this adjustment rod assembly when you do a brake job.

HONDA CIVIC 2001 rear brakes put on new brakes they dont have a short shoe for emergancy brake i have adjusted them they make a light clunking noise and brand new drums on the rear this car is driving me...

Hi, When you adjust them they should have a light drag as the wheel spins. The E brake should be the same on both sides. As for the noise I hope you bought the OE (original equipment) brake shoes. The other brands will squeal. Good Luck

Honda civic ex 2001 parking brake light stays on then goes off

Replace rear brake pads. If that doesn't help, remove the plastic console around the parking brake lever and adjust the pull on the lever. It's probably so loose that it's trigger the light.

This is not normal, looks like someone accidentally drove several miles with the brake on.

Premature brake wear on my 2005 Honda Civic

try a different brand of pads. Civics aren't the best at pads lasting a long time. you need to go with a semi-metallic pad such as the O'Reilley auto parts "BrakeBest" brand.
