    I expect that it will be just as easy to do brakes as on other Honda products...most of the hardware is similar.

    I see that the TSB list has been blocked again...otherwise I could direct you to a TSB that explains what points to lubricate...a VERY important process, especially in the rear .

    I force the pistons back simply by pulling on the calipers. It's either easy... or I don't know my own strength!

    Make sure you remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir so that it doesn't overflow onto your paint.

    I have always used a big "C" clamp to open the piston. I have heard you can cause problems if it doesn't go back in straight and you should use the special tool for it, but I have never had a problem. Open the lid on the master cylinder to relieve the vacuum pressure and probably is a good idea to remove a bit of fluid as stated above. The most annoying thing with Hondas are the 2 set screws they put in the rotors to hold them on during assembly at the factory.

    I never get to work on anything new, so not sure how much has changed.

    You only need to mess with the caliper screws if you are removing the rotors to turn or replace them. If you are not suffering from any brake vibration, you can leave well enough alone. (Just roughen the braking surface of the calipers to aid seating of the new pads)

    It is handy to have an impact driver to remove the screws. If you have to, you can easily drill the screw-heads off. That's a 15 minute delay at most. You don't need to reinstall them.

    When changing brake pads it is also a good idea to change/flush brake fluid.

    If your not going to change the brake fluid, when pushing back the caliper piston, crack the bleeder screw. Not only will it make compressing the piston easier, you avoid pushing old dirty brake fluid back through the ABS Module and, you don't have to worry about the old fluid over flowing from the master cyl.

    When done, top off the master cyl. with fresh brake fluid.
