    Since the process is not difficult, but fairly involved, and depends upon whether you have all four wheel discs, or drums in the back, it probably would be worth you while to invest in a Haynes 1998-2002 Accord manual (available at most automotive stores like Autozone, or certainly on eBay). It illustrates the process quite exactly.

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.

SOURCE: How to Change the brake light - 2004 Honda Accord

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

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.

What does it mean when my brake lamp light comes on in my 1999 honda accord 4 cylinder


it means your brake pads are worn and as a result your brake pad pistons have had to be displaced well enough to lower the level of brake oil in the brake oil make up tank. You may need to top up your brake fluid or replace your brake pads.

How to change rear brake pads for a honda 2007 ridgeline


The 2007 Honda Accord is equipped with four wheel disk brakes. Disk brakes wear down and require regular maintenance. Worn brake pads can cause squeeling and grinding noises, as well as reduced braking power. Improperly maintained brake pads can cause damage to the brake rotors as well as brake failure. Save on labor costs by replacing your own brake pads.www.lightdeal.co.uk

Could just be cheap brake pads. If you don't want to squeal, get a good quaility brake pad, and make sure the rotors are smooth.

Honda accord 2006


I’m assuming you got either the factory original ceramic brake pads or at least a decent quality aftermarket ceramic brake pad, not some cheapo semi metallic brake pad, such as Duralast or Raybestos PG’s.

When you replaced them did you properly lube the metal to metal contact points on the calipers? Remember, the pads have to be free floating, otherwise they will not properly engage and disengage from the rotors.

Did possibly some of the caliper lube get on the friction part of the brake pads? Whoops, no friction then. It happens, solution is buy another set, sorry.
Did you bleed all four brakes? Even though the system was not “Opened”, guess what, it already was every time you touch your brakes. The extreme heating and cooling during normal brake operations, even more so on Antilock Braking Systems (ABS ), sucks in moisture through those rubber brake lines and various other connection points. That’s the first reason why you do a quick bleed of the system. The second is to balance out the four wheel braking abilities, if you don’t, as the front wheels start to slow faster then rear, the ABS system releases the front brakes to maintain control.

1999 honda accord ex v6


The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.

Changing brake pads on 1996 honda accord


brake pads are one of those things that just dont last forever, using excess braking will wear them faster, not a hard or expensive fix to do yourself, just tell an auto parts store year make and model, they will give you the right pads, jack it up remove the wheels, take the old ones out and put the new ones in exactly how the old ones were, sometimes you need to turn rotors, and usually pads come with this gel to put on the pads. maybe 2 hours for the inexperience mechanic.

HONDA ACCORD BRAKED


What type of pads are you guys using? The number one complaint on cars is brake noise. One of the best solutions is to use quality ceramic pads. You may have cailpers sticking. If you have scorch marks on rotors or pulsation in pedal after resurfacing rotors, this is a good indication.
