Default how do you to change brake pads for 2006 civic?

well i usually change my brake pads but when I tried to take out the bolt to swing the caliper open the bolt would just spin and i see a plate that seems to turn while i turn the bolt do i need a special tool for this job?

Here are two DIYs. You didn't specify what vehicle you have (or if you were doing front or back pads), so I got you front and back.

FRONT > http://www.8thcivic.com/forums....html

BACK > http://www.8thcivic.com/forums....html

If you haven't visited 8thcivic.com, give it a look. I find both H-T.com and 8th to be helpful for different things, but 8th has a pretty large, and specific DIY section. This Civic (2006-Current) forum used to have a DIY section but it was removed.

Good luck.

so you have the normal bolt that you unscrew to lift the caliper up. take a 19mm wrench (i think) and use it to hold the pin thats right in front of the bolt, and unscrew the bolt and it will come off.
