2008 Honda Civic rear disc brakes

Time to work on the Honda again! My girlfriend has a 100 mile per day commute in her 2008 Honda Civic so the brakes wear pretty fast. In another installment I did the front brakes on this car but now it’s time to renew the rear brake pads. These cars and others use the rear brake caliper as the mechanism to apply the parking brakes. This requires a different approach to compressing the caliper pistons back into a position which allows the installment of new brake pads.

Watch this video for a detailed how-to on replacing these pads.

Keep on hackin!
