Question about 2002 Honda Accord
First break nuts loose. then jack car up. remove lug nuts and tire. use a 17 millimeter wrench or ratchet to remove the lower slide pin bolt. then rotate the caliper up and remove the pads. push the piston back into the caliper with a large set of adjustable pliers or c-clamp. then install new pads(highly recommend honda pads) and reverse the removal process.

I think that for those you have access from the trunk area. There will be a little piece of carpet over the connection I believe its just a push and turn.

you get all the lug nuts tight, the weight of the car on a loose lug can make that noise from the wheel, jack the car up and manually spin the tire, if you can give a more indepth description ill try to help, i have OnDemand5 if you have any other questions

These are directions from Wiki plus my own recent experience. Open the trunk and look in the left or right corner closest to the rear of the car. You will see a 4x4 3/4 (approximate) plastic cover, pull firmly to remove the plastic piece (if covered) from the backside of the taillight. Pay attention to how it comes out too because you will have to match up the ends to put the piece back in correctly. My breaklight was the top lightbulb but you can locate the burned out bulb by pressing your breaklights (I used a stick to wedge the pedal). When you find the bulb that is burned out, twist the bulb by grabbing it at the plastic end (I had a little tab on mine to push in before I turned the bulb) and turn it counter-clockwise then pull it straight out of the plastic housing and replace it with a brand new light bulb.
Hope it goes as smoothly for you as it did for me!!

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.

no, 12mm wrench or ratchet on 12mm socket. the piston is tough to push back in. its a twist in type and you will need some force to push and twist the piston back in. - note rear brake pads wearing out on the new 08-09 accords are very common and if under 16-18 thousand miles it may be covered. honda knows about this problem
