How do I adjust the brake pedal on a 1998 Honda Civic ex?

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!
