Do I need any special tools to change the brake pads on a 1991 Acura Legend?

I know there are two bolts. One the holds the pads inside the calipers and another that holds calipers on. They both should be 17mm, but on domestic cars sometimes there is a special head on those bolts and they are resessed.

you just need the tools you should have in your garage. No Special Tools needed. You only need to take the caliper off not the mounting brackets. After you get the old pads off, use one of the old pads to protect the piston and take a big wrench and squeeze the piston back into the caliper so you can get the caliper back onto the brackets.
