Having problems with your 2004 Honda Accord ?
How do I get the rear brake pad assembly back on the rotar? The new pads make the space between them too narrow for the assembly to fit over the rotar
You have to compress the caliper. If your design uses the brake pads as parking break, you need to rotate the piston while compressing it. there are tools that assist with this, but I use a C clamp and the old brake pad.
You have to retract the caliper piston. On the rear of this vehicle the caliper pistons are threaded due to the design of the emergency brake. So, dont use a big c-clamp to push like most vehicles! You must turn the piston. There is a special tool but you can usually do it with needle nose pliers.
