Rear Brake Caliper

I am trying to replace the rear disk brakes on my 2004 honda accord 2 dr coupe. The Caliper is frozen shut and I can't reset the caliper to put the new pads on. Do you know how I might be able to solve this?

Most auto parts stores have a little cube that fits on a 3/8 ratchet wrench. use this cube to screw in your caliper. it has various nibs on it to fit a number of brake calipers. costs about 10 bucks. screw it in clockwise until its almost flush to the caliper housing...if you screw it in too far...the boot will pop over the piston and you will have a bigger mess. sometimes a screwdriver can be used to turn it but i prefer not to bleed. lastly make sure the grooves on the brake caliper piston is horizontal as to allow the caliper to slip over any "Nibs" on the new pads that are for alignment purposes.

How to remove a rear hub assembly bearing on a 99 honda accord 4 cly 2.3.


acdf6cf.gif



The rear wheel bearing and hub unit are replaced as a unit.
  1. With the vehicle on the ground, loosen the spindle nut.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support it safely.
  3. Remove the rear wheels.
  4. Remove the brake disc retaining screws.
  5. Unbolt the brake hose brackets from the knuckle.
  6. Remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and hang the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire.
  7. Remove the brake disc. If the disc is frozen on the hub, screw two 8 x 1.25mm bolts evenly into the disc to push it away from the hub.
  8. Remove the spindle nut and pull the hub unit off of the spindle.

Clean the backing plate and the mating surfaces of the brake disc and hub with brake cleaner. Clean the spindle, washer, and hub with solvent.
To install:
  1. Inspect the hub unit for signs of damage or wear. If the bearings are worn, the entire unit must be replaced.
  2. Install the hub unit and spindle washer onto the spindle. Install the spindle nut but do not tighten it.
  3. Install the brake disc and tighten the retaining screws to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
  4. Install the brake caliper and tighten the mounting bolts to 28 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Install the brake hose brackets onto the knuckle and tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. Install the rear wheels and lower the vehicle.
  6. With the vehicle on the ground, tighten the new spindle nut to 181 ft. lbs. (245 Nm), then stake the nut with a punch.
  7. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  8. Test the operation of the brakes.

ADJUSTMENT

The wheel bearings are not adjustable or repairable and should be replaced if found defective.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Cant find a way to compress rear brake caliper


Using a "C" clamp I usually use the old pads and gently use the clamp to depress it by turning a little at a time... Make sure to go slow..

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 lights not working


Having the sa but haven't replaces the brake switch. The owner's manual for my 99 accord indicates the the fuse is located behind a panel that is viewable when you open the door on the driver's side.
