Default Re: how do you to change brake pads for 2006 civic? (kit50si)

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. Click the image to open in full size.

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.
