    Default Brake caliper piston stuck problem of Honda civic exi 2006.

    Solution
    Recently I replaced the worn out brakes pads for all wheels of my Honda civic exi 2006. During removing the old brake pads of front right wheel, it was found that the brake caliper piston was not moving back easily. The mechanic made great effort to push it back in order to remove old brake pads. I asked the mechanic that why this wheel caliper is so hard to push back and he said that sometime it happened. Now my question is that why this happened to only one wheel brake caliper. Do you think this caliper piston has become faulty and need replacement or there is some method to repair or correct it. Is it safe or wise to drive with the hard caliper piston. Kindly throw some light on this issue.

    Actually there is a tool for pushing back the piston which your mechanic was not having
    No need to worry about unless the breaks are being dragged

    Does the caliper piston need lubrication with grease.

    Yes it should be cleaned and greased. Rubber bushes (if there) should also be checked for cracks. BTW which brake pads you have bought??

    I didn't remember the name of brake pad brand. However, this brand is very common &easily available in market. Perhaps its name is Alaska packed in red packing & it cost me Rs 2400 for all four wheels. Quality wise very good. I purchased it from AL Rehman Autos Mintgommery road lahore.

    You will need to rebuild both your front calipers. It's a fairly cheap and easy job as it involves changing all the O rings and cleaning of the piston. I would strongly suggest that you get it done asap this will solve your problem for sure. Good luck
