? about emergency brake / calipers on a 1990 Integra LS

How does it work viz calipers? Is the part that connects to the caliper repairable by a "home mechanic" or must you purchase a whole emerg brake assembly?
Do you need any special tools to replace the rear calipers on my 90 Integra?
BIG thanks from Canada.

For a description of the rear caliper's function, see here: http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/Brakes.html#ScrewIt
The parking brake mechanism is internal to the caliper, and is protected by a snap ring deep inside.
The external part consists of the spring, lever, and parking brake cable. The cables are replaceable, and are detached at the clevis.
What's wrong that prompted you to post this question? If the lever is seized or swings freely, the only real practical solution is a remanufactured replacement caliper.

No. Piece of cake.

You're out west, aren't you? In in Ontario.
