Question about 2007 Honda CR-V

Honda CRV brake calipers

Dealership told us today that the calipers for both front & back brakes would need to be serviced because the calipers slide dry causing heat. Was told by tech that Honda does not lube the calipers and this problem does occur. My question is why don't they lube them at the plant? Ask the tech- didn't get an answer. It's 2008 CRV LX with 14,000 miles.
The job is going to cost $120.00. To me, I don't think I should pay for this, they should have informed me about this potential problem when I purchased the car in January 2008.

    So, you're saying that lubing is part of the job in the plant. So, why is the tech telling us that they don't. I am beginning to wonder if this is simply a "money grab" on their (dealership) part? Am I right? Thanks for any information

Here I go again. My wheels on my 2003 Grand Cherokee has started burning again. What is the problem?


abs modulator, is bad. sad how your shops don't do tests. To find this... your brakes are dragging, so, what cause that? abs or master cylinder issues. has someone messed with there of the master cylinder, the rear piston clearances? above the pedal. I'd find a real ASE shop or top brake shop in town. tell them brakes drag and your story.'


one caliper all by self can drag,
say the guide pins seize or piston.
sound like its no just one brake dragging
but a real shop tests and proves all that.

What would cause both front brakes to lock up?


sticking disk brakes are caused by rust that forms on piston ,and brake drags and heats up making it tighter and tighter till finnaly no movement is allowed, till it cools off

the awnser to this is to use a Non factory (aftermarket) caliper( bembo) with a non steel piston and cross drilled rotors or don't let your steel calipers rust by keeping car in heated/ dry garage !

My 2008 Nissan Altima 40,000miles needs new brakes in the front, according to the dealership. Does this mean I need new brake pads? The dealership also said the brake system fluid was dirty and cont


Yes, it's typical for any vehicle to have the front brake pads and rotors replaced at 40,000 miles or less. A complete service would involve (2) new front brake rotors, (1 set) of new front brake pads (this includes 4 pads), brake fluid, silicone brake grease for the slide pins and possibly new slide pins (If they're corroded) and rubber seals for the slide pins. Because of the age of your vehicle, it's always a good idea to have the brake fluid changed (This means that your mechanic should bleed the brake system by opening the bleed screw on all (4) brake calipers). Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time and will start to break down (Lower the boiling point) and cause rust inside the system making your brakes less effective. Look at the brake fluid reservoir under the hood. The fluid should appear either clear (Perfectly clean) or slightly yellowish. If it appears to be light to dark brown, it's time to change it. If I were you, I would shop around for prices at other reputable service shops. Your dealer is going to charge you top dollar for this service. Hope this helps.

Tapered front disc brake pad wear


the brake calliper body that the pads are contained in slides on 2 pins to allow the equalization of pressure to either side of the disc
these pins rust up and prevent the equalization process
on most vehicles it results on the non moving pad wearing faster than the piston pad as the piston pad pulls the calliper body across but it is not free to move back
I suspect that in your case one pin is sticking and allowing the calliper body to twist slightly resulting in that wear pattern
as to the discoloration of the disc, that indicates a pad in constant contact with the disc and over heating the disc
when fitting new pads it is a requirement to do both wheels and to machine the discs to ensure true running of the disc
check that the callipers move freely on the mounting pins before reassembly

Back brakes coming on before front on snow and skidding


the way the car brakes are on todays cars are. the front brakes a supposed to grab a second before back brakes. so I would look to see if fluid is ok! and check out the front brakes, you could have a sticking caliper, thats stuck in and not applying the front brakes properly. have a good day !! also when you check the brakes make sure the caliper slide pins are ok. if not the caliper will hang up. if they are sticking replace caliper pins and grease them up good so caliper slides on them. my 2000 malibu had a similar problem and I found that the pins on caliper were bad, replaced them and all is fine.

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?


Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
brake_pads_rotor.jpg
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
brake_pad_set.jpg
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
remove_brake_caliper.jpg
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
remove_brake_pads.jpg
Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
remove_brake_pads_holder.jpg
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
brake_rotor.jpg
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
compress_caliper.jpg
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
new_brake_rotor.jpg
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
new_brake_pads.jpg
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
front_brake_rotor_pads.jpg
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks


First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

Abs brakes


The most over looked culpret and is also a good possibility could be a brake hose that is deteriating on the inside of the hose or frozen or un-lubricated slide pins. Not just any old grease will do. You you need caliper grease for the pins. The grease has to be able to withstand the heat and not break down. You don't want to go overboard with the grease either because it will collect brake dust and gum up. A light coat is great. If the caliper is able to be compressed back into the caliper with the bleeder valve broken loose then it's likely you have a bad hose. Replace hose and bleed brake system starting from the right rear brake, then left Rear, right front and finally left front. If it doesn't back off check the slide pins for ware and that they function and are not frozen up. Do you see any wet fluid leaking from the caliper or on the brake pads and rotor? I have a 1 ton Ford Diesel that the Rt Front caliper wasn't backing off until I broke free the bleeder valve and found that it was not the caliper, but the hose was bad, the slide path was all rusted and the slide pins were shot. Replaced for hose, slide pins, wire brushed slide path, and greased slide pins and path with caliper grease. Bought a small bottle of brake fluid to bleed the brakes. Total caost was aprox $25.00. New caliper for my truck would cost me $64.00 plus core charge for the old caliper. I had to change out my calipers in the rear as well so that's how I know the cost saved. If you have those little shiney clips that the pads ride on (top and bottom) you need to pop them off and knock loose any rust, brake dust and dirt and then clean up the clips with a wire brush. What happens is rust (usually) bubbles up under the clip and makes the clip raise up slightly. You can't really see the clip raised up but the tolerance is so close that the pads will actually bind up on the bubble and make it seem like the caliper isn't releasing. Depends on what style you have.

Need brake help please


When you replaced the caliper, were the posts on the mounting bracket able to slide in and out? They're the posts with the black rubber bellows and they have to be able to expand/compress.
