Brakes are going to be done.
WTH ?As I took my time to listen I heard, what I needed to know. I took the time to make a video show a clear shot , you can clearly see that in a video through a wheel, you must be special. the amount of force. was not over tightning, I am more like spot on with the feel and that you knew from a video. you again are the man of the micro second.
Shocked you did not ask me the miles?
I laugh at the guessing games.... oh two birds with one stone no need to duplicate a post never insulted or making fun.
My Neighbor has one. I'll share his. Like said not insulted. no need to apologize. Funny how I need to explain it all, I be here for a year......I'm sorry for questioning why you had to take the wheel off.
I lost sight of the fact that you weren't doing this completely for yourself. You were making a video in order to help others.
Please accept my apologies and keep on doing what you do.
With that being said, I still think it would be a good idea to get yourself a torque wrench. If you're going through all of the trouble to show people how to do things, you might as well show them the right way.
My back was out in ways, and like said that tire did not help, just dead weight Lol. think I'll get a camera's view from outside for them and they say I can not see the pads take the tire off, never win ....Hey Fishy, HOW MANY MILES on the '17 CR-V? ?
I sympathized with you, huffin' and puffin' to offer-up the wheel to the hub. Don't think it's because you are getting older...wheels are getting larger and heavier! ?
Nobody could use a video camera through the wheels to see remaining pad thickness. Unless, of course, a high-definition Boroscope was used! So thanks for going through the effort to make that video for us.
As said above, they don't have to be removed to get a measurement. I usually just slip a small piece of paper in there to gauge the width. Harder to do on the inner pad but not impossible.I took our V in to the shop a while back to have the shifter button replaced. Picking the V up, the service writer hands me a piece of paper listing the items they checked/inspected while it was in their shop. One of the items listed as checked was brake pad thickness.......right down to the MM of each pad written down on paper.
I made a post here in the forum that I doubted they actually checked the pads (thickness) because there was no sign of wheels being removed. Man.......did I ever get chastised/critized for saying I didn't think wheels had been removed.
Again, Mr. Fish, great video and thanks.
? ??????? ?? ???????? ?? ???????.
Pads are IN.
Love how one pack of MolyKote grease was supplied with the front pads, but none with the rear pads.
Somebody must have taken it out of the package before it was sold.
