How can I back off a seized caliper piston on front disc brakes. This is for a friends honda crap thing.

Also what would cause this? Will she have to replace it?

If this isnt too hard of a job I will do it for her, any help anyone?

Thanx In Advance

Try cracking the bleeder screw as you push the piston back in. Be sure to bleed the brakes after you are done.
BIG channel lock pliers, or a C-clamp both work well to push the piston back in.

Try the C clamp idea, that seems to work the best. As for buying a new caliper, it depends on what caused them to seize in the first place. It might be just the slider bolts or a scewered piston.

Well it doesnt matter now, she just exploded the transmission!

The car is a total piece of crap.

But she deserved it for not bothering to look at more than one car.

Never trust your nieghbors old car.
