I have been attempting to replace the rear brake pads on my 2004 honda accord. I have had no problems up until the point at which I try to press the piston in on the caliper so that it will fit over the new pads and it will not budge. I have tried everything. My last attempt was using an 8" C-clamp and a wood shim on the back of the caliper (unusual shape). The parking brake is not on and I have removed the cap to the brake fluid resevoir. I am at a loss. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
