After rear wheel bearings were replaced the back wheels both were too hot to touch after 5 miles driving. Garage said hand brake cable was at fault but I had disconnected it before returning CRV to garage. Long story short. Rear brake shoes fitted 3 years ago were at fault. Replacements had small pips or locating points on them which caused caliper to jam pads on skewed. Removed pips on pads with hacksaw and now brakes are cool. Caliper pin with 3 slides is at top on my 2003.

Sounds like you've had a lucky escape there.

You wouldnt happen to have pics (before/after) by any chance would you? No problem if you havent.

Sorry, no pics but I would guess the brake pads were from CRV that used location lugs that engaged with the piston. The actual piston lip is damaged from contact with the lugs but living on a small Island in the Med' there are no spares. Even the Honda dealer has to do a special order for pistons and calipers. Hot dry climate here so after 17 years underside of CRV is clean and rust free.
