Question about 2004 Honda Accord
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.
