Hi, Its a pretty straight foreward procedure. Il just paste the honda manual directions here The piston just pushes straight in like front calipers.
Remove the brake caliper bracket mounting bolts and remove the caliper assembly () from the knuckle. To prevent damage to the caliper assembly or brake hose, use a short piece of wire to hang the caliper assembly from the undercarriage. Do not twist the brake hose with force.
