I have changed my rear brake pads and rotors but i don't see any brake pad/rotor dust cover. Should i need to install it? FYI i have driven 60000 miles my 2016 Honda CrV. The front brake pad & rotor has been changed about 1.5 years ago.

None of these, it's a dust cover which you can install separately. It does not come with original parts.

You mean a caliper cover like this?


Or a shield like this?


If they weren't fitted originally, you probably don't need a shield. If you live in road-salt locales, just do 'brake service' every year or so to keep things moving and reduce corrosion.

The brake dust shields rusted out on mine, and I was told by the gov. vehicle inspectors that as long as they were both gone, it would pass inspection. Makes sense, everything on a braking system needs to be identical on both sides lest it create an 'imbalance' of conditions etc.

They are a PITA to change as it means removing everything at the back to put the plate on.

Yup, you can clearly see where all the brake parts attach to it. Pity it wasn't a bolt on extra... Especially as it is a different thickness metal anyway. The backing plate is heavy metal, whereas the dust shield as about as thick as a tin can!
