    Pictorial for replacing 2005 CRV rear brakes and rotor?

    Is there a good pictorial for replacing rear brakes on my 2005 CRV as well as the rotor? I just asked the local Honda Shop and they want $700. That sounds too high so I'd rather do it myself.

    IT will cost you $50 to do yourself, that's the cost of pads. 20 minutes of your time. No pictorials that I know of, but I've always just pulled the wheels off of any car, and figured out how to get the calipers apart, that's all it takes. Rotors may be $60 for two, and those are even easier to do.

    Thanks, I was ready to do it myself. Here in BC Canada they want $200 for a rotor and $100 for brake pads for one wheel. I think they've lost their marbles, but it is a new Honda Powersport Dealer and they do need to get back their money somehow.

    I think I need to buy a shop manual as I can't find anywhere the torque specs for the rotor and caliper bolts. The rotor bolt also has a punched notch on it so that means I would need a new bolt too. Surprised nobody every thought of putting up a pictorial, but I may do it if it could help anyone later.

    The rotors can be found for way less if you're not getting them from Honda themselves, I don't know if you guys have anything like Kragen or autozone, but you can just tell them the car, year, etc.. and they'll pull up the parts.

    Thanks, I'm doing that now! I've given up on Honda when they price things so out of reach for their parts.

    I did my brakes and rotors for about $100 a side, The front brakes are a little more expensive since they're bigger, but that's about it. I paid $40 for the brakes and about $70 for both rotors. Brand new ones too.

    Yeah, it may SEEM like a 20 minute job, but it takes time to lift the car and fit stands (be safe, you are wailin' on some tight hardware)

    Plus, the lubrication process takes a good 15 minutes a side, more if you have to remove rust....

    I don't use a torque wrench on the brake bolts, just make sure they are tight. I DO use the TW on the lug nuts.
