SOURCE: Rear brakes

parking brake cable is seized or improperly installed.... check that.
I'm uncertain what you mean about the calipers.... but having to push the cyclinder back in to change the pads is normal..... do one at a time. after you have installed the pads, pump the brake then do the other ..... check your brake fluid level when you are done as well.

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

SOURCE: brake pad is sticking.

You may have a defective brake caliper. Replace or rebuild the brake caliper. (If not performed) replace all brake fluid to new, as there may be dirt, metals, and other foreign objects in the fluid. Also check your your E. Brake adjustment!! Hopefully this helps

Absolutely not normal. In my immediate family we have a number of Jazz's going from the early 2002 models to last year's new Jazz.

None have ever had that problem, and whenever the discs have needed replacement due to regular wear (one set of front discs lasts two to three sets of pads, and each set of pads lasts about 10 to 15k miles depending on driving style) it's cost nothing like that much. Typically about £220 fitted by Honda and £120 when I've done the job myself using quality parts from Mintex, Ferodo or Bendix (takes around half an hour per side, but I can now do both sides in half an hour). On one of the cars an ABS reluctor ring broke causing the ABS to cut in too early (you'll feel and hear it as a banging noise via the brake pedal) and that was a bit pricey as the ring was only supplied as part of a complete driveshaft. Although Honda don't sell the ring separately, there are third party suppliers who will do so. If it's just pads and discs then your dealer is charging you silly money and I'd still be demanding to know why the discs have worn so abnormally.

Given your current mileage it's highly likely that your pads are due for replacement, but unless there's another fault the discs should be good for at least one more set of pads and should have evenly worn down.

Don't take your current Honda dealer's word for it, shop around: I'm lucky enough to have a choice of three different dealers within about a 45 minute drive of me. My nearest dealer is expensive and in my family's experience, incompetent. The other two are both good but one is significantly cheaper than the other (Redhill Honda). If you're still unhappy then contact Honda UK as it's not unknown for them to offer goodwill repairs outside of the warranty: don't expect this to happen though if you've missed services or had them done outside the Honda dealer network.

Good luck with this one; I'm sure that by shopping around and asking detailed questions you'll save a lot of money.

There is a knock in the rear brakes which stops when you apply the brakes. I took the passenger side tire off and inspected the brake. The outside pad is loose and the inside pad is so tight against the...

It sounds like the slide pin in your brake assembly has jammed - this is a reasonably common problem. The brakes should 'self-adjust' or centre so that there is even braking force from either side. It may be possibly to remove your brake caliper, unjam the slide, lubricate it and reinstall it. At this point you really need to replace your pads and check your discs for uneven wear and have them machined or replaced as necessary. However, it is far more likely that it will be cheaper and easier to simply replace the caliper (and the pads and discs as required).
Hope this helps, Sherwin

Front brake pads wear down too quick

Get the brake calipers checked, the slides are probably seized/sticking causing drag.Check the rear hubcap for stones/debris/looseness.There is also a brake snow/debris guard which tends to rust.

Ok when i am driving my car and when i need to apply the breaks they make a almost squealing noise but after i drive for a little the stop any help will be much appriciated

I have same problem; turns out all Honda Accords of this generation (2003-2007) do this. It has something to do with cold brakes and unseated pads, and the first time you stop from medium speed, you will hear a grinding, maybe from the back of the car (i think in my case).
My girlfriend looks at me, and we both wonder what it is, but it goes away in about 1 minute and I've realized it's only when the brakes are cold and it's not a problem. My brakes are basically ok, and there is nothing to fix...
I've done enough reading about this car on the internet, I feel pretty sure everybody's Accord does this, so I stopped worrying about it. A real problem, the sound would not go away as soon as the brakes warm up and seat the pads. After that, the breaks work fine.
If it was worn pads, the squealers will start up and not go away quickly. If it was a worse problem, the sound would grind continuously until fixed.
The two major problems with Honda Accord brakes are: 1) Brake judder at hi-speed medium braking. If you are going downhill, and just want to slow the car a little, if your rotors are getting worn, the steering wheel will give you feedback as brake judder. Hit the brakes harder, it will go away but it's scary and requires the rotors be replaced with a much higher quality rotor than came from the factory, and probably want to use ceramic pads (like Bendix CQ or CT). 2) Back brake pads wear down quickly. I read about this constantly with Accord owners, the EX back brakes are smaller rotors and pads than the front, but the electronic brake distribution system of the Accord will balance brake force between front and back, so the front pads will actually last longer than the back pads! This is very unusual but entirely normal for this car. Most cars are the opposite but that may change as we see new generations of cars with more evenly balanced braking front to rear. Be ready and watch your back brakes closely. Mine were toast at 30k...
I replaced my back pads and rotors, used cheapest new rotors I could find, and ceramic pads, and they have lasted considerably longer than the first set.
I now have 92k on my 2004 and the original front brakes are ready to be replaced. I replaced back brakes at 34k I think, and was very surprised they needed replacement at early, but the new pads have gone almost 60k, but look ready to be replaced sometime this year I think.
I have bad judder on high speed braking, but the pads are still ok in front. Rotors are **** in front and I'll replace with Centric Cryo-Stop rotors, they should last a long time as long as they get put on straight and I don't let anybody warp them with an air gun at the tire shop...
Two other more minor problems to watch for on this car: 3) Inner pads may wear faster than outer pads, because the caliper is on the inside, and forces the outside pads to contact the rotor after the inner pads are already braking. Seems like all Accords do this at least a little. The inner pads are not easily viewed without removing wheels, so it's hard to tell, but if your outer pads look like they are starting to get worn down pretty well, chances are good the inner pads are even more worn and you are ready to replace pads. 4) Pads may wear faster on one side of the car (fronts) faster than the other side. For example many people report driver side pads wear faster than passenger side. And the reasons proposed have to do with fast stopping for right hand turns or freeway loops. The car spends more time being braked in a right turn than a left over time.. But of course, on my car, it seems to be the opposite. The passenger side is wearing faster! Go figure..

Sounds like the caliper on the side that isn't wearing is not working properly. You need to test it to make sure that it is pushing out properly when the brakes are pressed. I can't imagine that it is working correctly. It sounds like the piston isn't moving out and you need to look at replacing that caliper so that your brakes wear evenly and also to make sure you have your full stopping power. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

Loud noise coming from back passenger side wheel when backing up

sounds more like a brake wear sensor. The inner pads wear faster than the outer, so if you are checking pad wear, be sure to look at the inner pad. If you just had brake work done, one of the anti rattle clips on a pad may be contacting the brake rotor.
