Replacing 2005 Honda Accord Rear Brake Pads OEM or Aftermarket?
Looking to replace my rear brakepads and need to decide between OEM or aftermarket pads. This is going to be done by a professional mechanic, not me, and the cost difference seems minimal but is even $50 worth it? My original pads wore out at 30k and seemed to grab too much in the first place. I feel like ceramic pads might be a better option and at a cheaper cost.
I replaced a brake light switch on 2005 Honda Odyssey. While driving, my brake locked. I have to stop the car and step on the brake several times to release the brake to continue to drive. What is the problem and it is easily to fix at home before I bring the car into the shop?

The most difficult part is removing the Rotors because the screws that hold the rotors on the hub can be difficult to remove. If the Rotors look OK, then you do not have to remove them to put new pads in, but if the Rotors have grooves or otherwise look worn, the they should be replaced. There are vidios on how the remove the Rotors, as well.
You will need to find a set of Stock Factory Front and Rear Coils to return the car to Factory Stock height. Remove the Aftermarket Coils and replace with the Stock ones. You will need to get the car re-aligned after that.
The 2007 Honda Accord is equipped with four wheel disk brakes. Disk brakes wear down and require regular maintenance. Worn brake pads can cause squeeling and grinding noises, as well as reduced braking power. Improperly maintained brake pads can cause damage to the brake rotors as well as brake failure. Save on labor costs by replacing your own brake pads.www.lightdeal.co.uk
no, 12mm wrench or ratchet on 12mm socket. the piston is tough to push back in. its a twist in type and you will need some force to push and twist the piston back in. - note rear brake pads wearing out on the new 08-09 accords are very common and if under 16-18 thousand miles it may be covered. honda knows about this problem
It sounds like there is a problem with the current calipers, it would be cheaper to try replacing the current ones with a new one NOT FROM HONDA. buy an aftermarket caliper and try that. Dealerships will try to screw you over and take money from you when its not necessary.
