Question about 2009 Honda CR-V
Wanted to have breaks checked before winter and was told all 4 rotors needed machening but the break pad were fine. I always thought the break pads went bad before the rotos wore out.
Typically pads need to be changed more than once before rotors needs to be *replaced*. Most shops machine rotors when changing pads to give them a smooth, even surface. Machining removes groves that cut into them as a result of normal wear (or if pads are not replaced promptly). Machining can straighten warped rotors due to excessive heat / quick cooling. These are definitely NOT considered "worn out".
Worn out rotors must be *replaced* if they are too badly damaged, rusted, etc. or if they have been machine so many times that they are too thin to safely brake the car. There are specific guidelines that spell out exactly how thin rotors can be before they must be replaced. Mechanics measure the thickness of the rotor with a micrometer which reveal thicknesses to the 1/1000 of an inch.
I hope this was helpful & good luck!

SOURCE: 2004 honda crv brakes are
check to see if the rubber bushing is on the master cylinder pushrod where it bolts up to the booster..if its missing and or doubles , it may cause u to lock ur brakes up..i had this problem where the tech didnt put one and or didnt remove one while installing the new master cylinders...there should only be one. most factory and aftermarket mast cyl come with one however techs sometimes for get to check the booster for the old one some assume its still there cuz they always almost get stuck in there..so they install the new master cyl.without one or with one and either they have none..or both...it only needs one...

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?

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.

You can screw the rear caliper pistons back in, by using a needle nose pliers and turning the cross or x notch in a clockwise direction. both caliper pistons will turn the same way. The reason they "screw" out, is for positive locking pressure when the parking brake is engaged.
