  1. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hey everyone, I am a new Honda owner, just bought this 2011 CR-V used about six months ago. The A/C did go out in the past couple months, but besides that it has been great for my wife and I. It has about 130,000 miles on it. We used the E-brake on a hill on Saturday and drove home after with...
  2. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Howdy - I'm hoping this is just a stupid question with a quick answer ... but I can't find the issue discussed anywhere. I just replaced my rear pads and unstuck some caliper pins. When I re-installed everything, I was surprised to see that the floating pad just sits there - it's not connected...
  3. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Any recommendations?
  4. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi 2 weeks ago I took the CR-V (1999 1st Gen) in for its NY State inspection. I had replaced the Catalyst and exhaust system with stainless and was expecting it to pass. I knew I needed to look at the front brakes but they seemed to be working though they did not feel quite right. It failed...
  5. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hey guys. I'm new to the crv life. I have an 06 2wd and I have found my right rear caliper is shot. Can I use an 03 or are these not interchangeable?
  6. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Just wanted to pass along experience I've had with remanufactured brake calipers to anyone that might be needing to replace theirs, and some other observations on brake parts. When I bought my (very used) 2nd gen CR-V two years ago, the brakes were in a very sorry state of affairs. Both rears...
  7. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I am going to,flush the brakes, inspect all the pads and change them if needed on Saturday. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me and other CRV owners the correct Torque specs for Front and Rear calipers for a 2013. Any suggestions on a one-person bleed from you experienced guys...
  8. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I've changed calipers and they're still sticking. Is the problem the brake hose?
  9. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Just inherited my Dads EX with 44k on it, am starting to dig into the brakes. The car spent three winters in VT, there's a good bit of corrosion on various brake parts, more than I would have expected. Haven't done brakes and rotors before, pretty confident I can handle it, but not sure I know...
  10. Diesel CR-V
    Been doing a pad change and a simple job has turned out a bit of a nightmare - rear calipers on both sides are completely refusing to retract. Even bought a piston rewind kit but no joy. Peeled back the gators a little and it's all pretty corroded. I'll probably keep the car another year or...
  11. Trading Post
    Hello all, I've a pair of rear OEM "Nissin" calipers for Gen 2 CR-V. These are "loaded" calipers come with slightly used OEM brake pads (less then 20 miles) and hoses. I bought these from a local savage yard, but never get a chance to installing them. $100 + shipping, let me know if you are...
  12. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I got new wheels and tires yesterday. I have always had Kleen Wheels Brake Dust Covers on my stock wheels. Now that I have new wheels, I don't like the looks of the rusty and dirty looking calipers and brake drums. So I'm asking for advise on wether to just clean them up the best I can or paint...
