  1. Uneven rotor wear

    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...

    I have a 2012 EX with 40K miles, was experiencing brake pulsation and felt like warped front rotors. I ordered Bosch Quietcast front rotors off of Amazon (because of cheap shipping), but they are not the right size. The Amazon fitment tool says the Bosch rotors are supposed to fit my 2012 EX...

    Hello, new owner of a 2003, new to forum. I was rotating tires this weekend when I notice the rotor retention screws are missing on my rear rotor. How concerned do I need to be?
