  1. Problems & Issues
    What does this mean? Background: I had some rubbing noise from rear driver's side wheel. After I inspected and compared to the other side, it looked like the pad had slipped toward the hub a bit. I then used a screw driver to nudge it higher. Then the noise got worse. The outer ring on the rotor...

  6. Problems & Issues
    Long story. Last week the dealer replaced the front struts and boots under ext. warranty. The next day there was a super high pitched squeal followed by grinding coming from the front end when turning. I had to drive it for a couple of days and the noise seemed to go away. Today I took it back...

  9. Problems & Issues
    Today I was putting on new brakes all the way around on my 2006 CR-V and I got to the left rear and the rotor was rusted which means that the brake has not been working. I was cleaning and lubing all the guide pins as I did the brakes. The guide pins were still nice and lubed and not stuck so...

    I start hearing a slight screeching noise from the front of my CR-V. I couldn't figure it out and since me yearly service was due in 2 weeks I postpone it... Big mistake! The noise was getting louder, so I looked more carefully and I noticed that the right front brake disk was scratched! Took...

    Hi all, Apologies if this isn't the correct place I wasn't sure where to post this being new to the forum. I've also attempted to find the answer using the search function. I recently bought a 2005 2.2L CR-V. The front pads and discs needed replacing. Upon changing the offside set, I noticed...

    Hi guys, I was trying to lubricate my rear caliper slide pins and ran into some trouble removing the rear pads and caliper. The pads weren't worn down all the way. The inside pad had those clip pins that stick into the caliper piston, which wouldn't let me slide the caliper away from the brake...
  13. Problems & Issues
    I just changed my driver side rear caliper and bled the brakes of just that wheel. Got in and went for a ride and the brake light, steering wheel, and traction control lights are all on in the dash. Anyone know why this happened or what I can do to clear these. Thanks.

    I have a 2010 Honda CR-V. I was trying to change the brake pads. I cannot compress the brake caliper piston. I used an 8 inch clamp, no luck. Any suggestions?
  16. Problems & Issues
    So yesterday my front right caliper seized, getting very hot and causing the entire car to vibrate. Do you think I will have to replace the caliper, or is it usually just the slide pins that seize? How will I tell the difference? I plan on tackling this myself.

    Is there a grease that won't swell the rubber seals on the sliding pins that I can use?
  18. Problems & Issues
    During a visit to the tire shop, my tech informed me that the right rear rotor was rusted with surface rust, indicating that the caliper was not engaging. Upon further inspection, I noticed the guide pin was seized. So I removed, cleaned and polished the pin and applied grease and reassembled...

    How do I tell the difference between the upper and lower pad retainer to install them correctly. The ones now on the caliper brackets are different on the bottom left of the vehicle and the side bottom right of the caliper of the vehicle?
