Is there any trick to getting the rear wheel cylinder piston to move back when putting on new pads on a Honda accord 1994 ex??

AnswerHey KIm==Remove the lines to the old cylinder then the 2 bolts that hold it on. When you get the new cylinder, bench bleed it to get all of the air out of the clyinder and when you reinstall it, bleed it through the lines at the master cylinder and if you have a good pedal you won't have to bleed the brakes at the individual wheel cylinders. But if the pedal is soft and not a good pedal, bleed the brakes starting with the right rear then left rear then right front and lastly left front. Use ONE PUMP ONLY TO BLEED THE BRAKES. If you pump up the pedal it muxes the air in the lines and you have a hard time getting all of the air out. Make sure you have new fluid comming out of the wheel you are bleeding to asure that you have gotten all of th air out. Good luckJoe DON'T OPEN THE LINES!!!!!!!!Just use a C-Clamp or a piston compressor [Recommended] to push the pistons back in. taking the cap off the reservoir under the hood helps a lot.

How do you change the rear brake pads on a 1998 Honda Accord?

The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.

What is bump clearance?

It is the space between the top of the piston and the bottom of the cylinder head. Great care should be used when putting an engine back together to make sure the bump clearance is not 0 so that the piston will not hit the head cylinder.

What can you replace a piston with that is not a different piston but an object that is not a piston?

The general term for piston is cylinder, and a cylinder might be made to work in this application. But a cylinder used in this manner, that is, a cylindrical shape connected in a machine that is used in the same way will almost certainly be called a piston by most investigators.

How do you replace a piston on a small engine?

need to be more specific on what kind of small engine to give you exact information on how to pull the piston. . . but generally you just need to pull the head and cylinder off. . . the remove the wrist pin that holds the piston to the piston rod and your piston will come out. . . now getting the new one back is is going to be a different story :) . . . you are going to have to stagger the ring gaps to make sure you are holding compression . . . basically just make sure none of the ring gaps on your piston rings line up when you put the new piston back in and oil your cylinder pretty good too helps with putting it in and with breaking in the new piston.
