Question about 2002 Honda CR-V
Can I fix the brakes myself as a novice mechanic?
The brakes on the cr-v should all be rotors, and are very easy to replace for the home mechanic.
a few tips.
brake lube- use on all metal to metal componets.
i.e. caliper, caliper slide bolts, metal backing of all the pads.
i found a great tool to depressing the caliper, found at many autoparts stores... the caliper piston should slide in smooth!
check with your local parts store for the torque on all the bolts!
don't forget to torque your wheels!
once you are done changing the componets and the car is on the ground.
Slowly pump the brake pedal at least ten times
check your fluid!
BEFORE you put in into any gear!
