Keeping in mind that the brakes are the most important part of the car, it is wise to have a professional have his hands and eyes on it for a true and proper diagnosis. But since I cannot be there right now, I will tell you that a 1998 (or any year model) should not have the pedal adjusted. If your pedal is not where it should be this is a symptom of a problem at the wheels or under the hood. Be careful about taking your car to a shop that specializes in brakes only, as most of them will sell you a complete brake system even if all you need is pads and rotors, because they are in business to make money and let the buyer beware. I have seen way too many people get scared into spending $500 or more on there brakes to get a bogus warranty when that could have gotten buy with a $150 brake job because they didn't know! Arm yourself with information by purchasing and reading the repair manual for your car!

You will need help to bleed the brakes on a Honda Civic. One person needs to pump the brake pedal several times then hold it down. The other then needs to open a wheel bleeder valve, and let the air/fluid mix come out until the pedal reaches the floor. Close the valve and repeat until no air comes out with the fluid. Then move to another wheel.

Most brake light switches ratchet into position and self-adjust. To reset the adjustment, press the brake pedal part way down & pull the switch out toward the pedal until it clicks several times.
