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.

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.

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 does a spring airsoft gun work?

Spring airsoft guns work of manual operation. This means that you have to pull or move a part to get it to function. Here's the basic parts that make it function: - Cylinder - "Piston" - "Piston head" - Piston catch - Trigger - Spring - Spring guide The cylinder is what the air is funneled through. The piston is what is getting release to come forward in the cylinder to push the air. The piston head is a rubber cap that fits on the front of the piston to make a good air seal as the piston is coming forward through the cylinder. The piston catch is what is the piston is being held back on before the trigger is pulled. The trigger is what releases the piston catch to send it forward. The spring is what is pushing the piston. The spring guide is what the spring sits on.

Why there is rings in piston?

The piston rings create a seal between the piston and the cylinder wall.

Why would piston rings cause low compression?

the rings kind of seal in the sides of the piston with the cylinder wall. When a compression test is done the air is escaping between the piston and the cylinder where the good ring would normally seal. If you are getting low compression it is more likely the valves

What is cylinder ridge?

In a internal combustion engine, a cylinder ridge is an unworn area around the top of the cylinder wall. In that engine, the piston moves up and down in the cylinder, and the rings seal the piston in that cylinder. But the rings are spaced "down a bit" from the top of the piston. And when the piston reaches top dead center in the cylinder, the rings haven't gone all they way to the top of the cylinder. They end up wearing the cylinder out "underneath" that top area. In other words, it's the top part of the cylinder that is not in contact with the piston rings. It's the "unworn" part, if you will.

What is piston diameter?

What is a piston slap?

piston slap is when the piston inside the cylinder is somewhat smaller than the cylinder bore. when the piston moves up and down, it ends up moving side to side too. this causes a knocking/slapping sound as the piston slams into the cylinder walls.this can cause harm if the play between the piston and bore are significant, otherwise it's nothing to worry about. if the car is hammering you might want to take it to a garage.Piston slap is the piston lose is the cylinder and it is making a rattling noise.Hope this helps.

How do you compress rear brake cylinder in a 2005 Honda accord?

If this is an Accord with rear drum (did they still make those in 05?) replace the cylinder. If it doesn't push in easily it is frozen and will never work again. Otherwise: Unmount the caliper and remove the pads. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the caliper parking brake lever. Use a purpose built tool (preferably not the cube shaped thing) to rotate the piston clockwise as it pushes the piston inward. Verify that the notch in the piston aligns with the teat of the brake pad. If not, rotate the piston counterclockwise until the notch is positioned to positively engage with the teat.
