Fishy's right, the rear calipers are a new animal. You have gear motors in the calipers for the electric parking brakes. You must fully retract these parking brake motors before attempting to push the pistons back.

Been enjoying the laughs if people trying to do electronic rear brakes themselves because they get pissed when they have to buy a caliper that alone costs more than even the most expensive dealership charges to do them.

Cant just use a clamp, special process first to retract the parking brake drive, then have the kit to basically screw the piston back in.

Though when the manual version of e-brake calipers came out, people were destroying those too. Still happens.

Ya and that's a good way to screw up the pistons if you arent careful. Just have to turn them to get them to go in once the ebrake is retracted (if Honda requires it). But it's still a really bad example and quite easy to damage the piston or boot. If you did, will be me laughing when caliper seizes up lol. But guessing you have some understanding of what your doing so would be ok.

It's all the wanna be backyard mechanics that dont have freaking clue outside of a crescent wrench and a hammer that I find funny. Those are the ones that help us stay busy.

The only two tools need by a back yard mechanic are a hammer and a rubber.....If you can't fix it with a hammer, Frack it. 😅
