  1. 2011 Honda CR-V right-rear wheel/ Emergency brake issue??

    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. caliper brakes question - floating pad

    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...

  4. '99 Front Calipers , rotors replacement - any advise appreciated. :)

    Maintenance and Service
    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. Brake calipers

    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. Cardone Ultra Calipers + other brake part observations

    Maintenance and Service
    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. 2005 ‘SE’ i-CDTi (UK spec) - both front calipers sticking

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, Hopping someone can help with this issue, or at least point me to relevant thread as I’ve not managed to find anything by searching. My 2005 SE i-CDTi (UK spec) is dragging its pads on both front calipers, with the driver-side (RHS in UK) being more effected. Initial symptoms were a...

    Maintenance and Service
    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...
  9. Still Binding Rear Brakes after New Calipers, shoes, fluid, etc?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi folks, I'm really stuck and so is the garage that has done a lot of work to my 2004 Honda CRV 1800 Petrol 4WD. The car had been sitting off road for a while and back brakes were binding, at first we thought it could be the handbrake cable but this was checked and all ok so new rear shoes...

    Maintenance and Service
    I've changed calipers and they're still sticking. Is the problem the brake hose?
  11. How to tell if calipers are ok 2013 EX

    Maintenance and Service
    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...
  12. Acciently sprayed Rust Proofing on brake parts - rotors, calipers - Rust Check, help

    Problems & Issues
    I was changing a rear tire on my 2013 CRV - the steel wheel was stuck to the rotor, had to kick the tire to release. There was a lot of rust on the rotor body area near the wheel studs, so I sprayed the rotor centre area. Over-spray covered the remaining brake parts - calipers, etc. The Honda...
  13. Brake System Bolt Torque (Calipers, etc.)

    Maintenance and Service
    With there being no service manual available for the current generation CR-V, does anyone know what to use for torque specs on things like caliper bolts? I don't want to assume they are the same as the previous generation, but maybe someone can confirm if they are. Otherwise I guess I will...
  14. Rebuild Calipers or Buy Used?

    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...

  16. Compressing calipers?

    Maintenance and Service
    Can the c-clamp method of compressing a caliper be used on both the front and rears of a 2011 crv? Or just fronts or rears? Most of the rears I have dealt with need to be turned back in, not just compressed. Anyone know? Thanks
  17. 2010 CR-V Brake Question

    Maintenance and Service
    I just purchased a new 2010 CR-V. Has about 2k miles on it now. I noticed my rear passanger rotor had quite a few groves in it already, but the rest of them looked smooth. With only 2k miles, should I have the dealer look at this and replace or resurface? I also noticed the rear rotors dont...
  18. Cost of replacing front calipers

    Problems & Issues
    I have been given two quotes for replacing the front calipers on my 2003 CRV which have rusted, 1400 euros for new or the guy can build them up for 600 euros. This seems a bit steep to me.

    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...
  20. Brake Calipers - paint or not to paint

    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...
