If you decide to do the rear disk brakes at some point, the C-clamp method will not work to push the piston back in. You have to turn the piston clockwise (most people use a large needle-nose pliers) and push in at the same time, then line up the slot in the piston with the tab on the inner brake pad. As long as you do not loosen the bleed bolt, you should not have to bleed the system, however, you might want to think about replacing the brake fluid in the near future. It is recommended to change the brake fluid every 3 years, regardless of mileage. Have you checked the rear pads? They usually wear before the front pads on this generation Accord.
