  1. Dealer wants $129 to grease slider pins ! WTH?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Had the car in for some service this morning. As a precaution asked them to lube the pins while the wheels were off for a rotation. Told me it's $129.00 since they have to disassemble the brakes. Not sure it's true but I don't know whats involved. I know on my CX-5 the dealer did it for free...

  4. Rear Wheel Grease Leak

    Problems & Issues
    Our trusty 2007 CR-V is leaking grease out of the right rear wheel center. I'm 99% sure (haha) this indicates a leaking seal or O-ring underneath. Anybody had this and know what it most likely is? I'm mechanically quite capable so if it's a relatively simple fix I'll take it on; if it's more...

    Is there a grease that won't swell the rubber seals on the sliding pins that I can use?
  6. What grease for caliper slide pins?

    Maintenance and Service
    The service manual specifies to use Honda Silicone Grease (08C30-B0234M) on the caliper slide pins. However, this stuff is about $50 a tube and not widely available. Are there any good alternatives? I've read that only silicone grease should be used because it's compatible with the rubber...
  7. Replacement Front OEM CV Joint - Pre-Loaded With Grease??

    Maintenance and Service
    The outer boot cracked on my 1998 5MT and rather than just replace the boot, or install an aftermarket rebuilt axle, I decided to purchase a new OEM outer front CV joint kit (I'm also replacing the inner boot). The new joint appears to have been pre-loaded with grease but there was also a tube...

    Maintenance and Service
    Is there one grease I can use on practically anything? I have the Valvoline red multi grease. I want something I can pump into ball joints, use for brake shims, basically any joint that wants to creak and groan. White lithium, moly, etc?

  11. Good Old Grease

    Maintenance and Service
    Anyone have any suggestions on what type of grease I should use for the doors? A mechanic at the dealer said they use white lithium grease. I was looking at the Shin Etsu grease on H and A, and I understand a little goes a long way, but it seems expensive for such a small tube.
