Instructions: changing rear brake pads

Frequent inhalation of brake pad dust, regardless of material composition, could be hazardous to your health.

Avoid breathing dust particles.

Never use an air hose or brush to clean brake assemblies. Use an OSHA-approved vacuum cleaner.


Inspection
Raise the rear of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations. Remove the rear wheels.

Check the thickness of the inner pad (A) and outer pad (B). Do not include the thickness of the backing plate.


Brake pad thickness:

Standard:
8.9-9.1 mm (0.350-0.358 in.)

Service limit:
1.6 mm (0.06 in.)


If the brake pad thickness is less than the service limit, replace all the rear brake pads as a set.

Replacement
Raise the rear of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations. Remove the rear wheels.

Remove the flange bolts (C) while holding the pin A and pin B with a wrench being careful not to damage the pin boots, and remove the caliper (D). Check the hose and pin boots for damage and deterioration.

Remove the pad retainers (A).

Clean the caliper thoroughly; remove any rust and check for grooves and cracks.

Check the brake disc for damage and cracks.

Install the pad retainers.

Apply a thin coat of M-77 assembly paste (P/N 08798-9010) to both sides of the pad shim (A), the back of brake pads (B), and the other areas indicated by the arrows. Wipe excess assembly paste off the pad shims and brake pads. Contaminated brake discs or pads reduce stopping ability. Keep assembly paste off the brake discs and pad material.

Install the brake pads and pad shims correctly. Install the brake pad with the wear indicator (C) on the inside bottom.

If you are reusing the brake pads, always reinstall the brake pads in their original positions to prevent a momentary loss of braking efficiency.

Rotate the caliper piston (C) clockwise into the cylinder, then align the cutout (D) in the piston with the tab (E) on the inner pad by turning the piston back. Lubricate the boot with rubber grease to avoid twisting the piston boot. If the piston boot is twisted, back it out so it is positioned properly.

Install the caliper. Install the flange bolts (F), and tighten it to the specified torque while holding the pin A and pin B with a wrench. Be careful not to damage the pin boots.

Press the brake pedal several times to make sure the brakes work.

NOTE: Engagement of the brake may require a greater pedal stroke immediately after the brake pads have been replaced as a set. Several applications of the brake pedal will restore the normal pedal stroke.

After installation, check for leaks at hose and line joints or connections, and retighten if necessary.Then test-drive the vehicle.

This should apply to all Hondas with rear disk brakes (except hybrids). The front disks brakes are done in a similar fashion on all models.

rear brake shoes
BTW, the "pads" on drum brakes are called "shoes".

I was able to order a "brake rebuild kit" from a Honda dealer in the US a couple of years ago to get the boots, the kit had whole bunch of other little parts such as piston seals, O-rings etc.

You should be able to talk to the dealership parts guys about this, alas the dealership I used to mail order parts from killed their mail order business.........
