SOURCE: how do i change front brake pads on 2007 honda odyssey

No, just a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the lower caliper bolt, swing the caliper up and slide the pads out. Compress the caliper piston with large slip joint pliers. Lubricate the pad ends where they touch the slides and install new pads.

SOURCE: how to replace brake pads & rotors

I have a 2006 Sequoia which should have the similar if not the exact same brake system. Changing the pad is very easy and straight forward. No special wrenth was involved. Easier than sedans since no worry to damage the brake fluid pipe.

SOURCE: 2007 Rav 4- Front Brake pad growl during stops

I had what sounds like the same problem with my v6 2007 rav4. When the brakes were replaced at 27000 miles, the toyota tech had installed the caliper mounting pins in the wrong mounting place, what I mean is that one pin is shorter than the other and he put the top pin in the bottom and vice-versa. this allows the caliper to operate unevenly and wore down the pads on that side much faster than the other side because it was always rubbing and therefore warped the rotor from overheating. It took 2 trips back to the dealer and 2 independent shops before that was found.

Honda Jazz 2007 1.4 rear pads and discs replaced no hold on handbrake still. Adjusted handbrake but still nothing could this mean I need new calibers? Thanks for the previous answers but there is no

Callipers are what hold the pads and the cylinders on the car. They have nothing to do with your problem. However they are attached by 2 bolts that are fixed to the axle housing mount. These bolts will rust up and not allow the callipers to move and centralize on the disc rotor. If you look at the callipers you will see 2 bolts that have what looks like a rubber seal under the head These are the bolts . Although you have adjusted the hand brake, if you have shoes inside the hub of the disc rotor they will have to be adjusted first and not just the lever.

Installed brand new pads and rotors on my mom's 2007 honda pilot. applied grease, new clips etc. cleaned the springs with brake clean. Stops fine, but she has been complaining of a squealing noise while...

squealing brakes on movement is often a mismatch between the rotor material and the pad hardness. There are 3 pad hardness to allow for braking conditions One is for taxi use where there is a high requirement for long life and good brakes , the next is a middle of the range pad that gives good brakes and good mileage and the third is a pad designed for high speed fast stop applications as in racing cars The squeal is from the wrong pad on the rotor and will not go until the pad is worn out or you replace it with a different pad . Talk it over with an accredited brake shop.

Hello... in answer to your question tis is not a normal problem nor is it normal wear and tear i hve worked on hondas for years and own and race two of them,dealers will tell you what they want so that they dont have to cover warranty cuz of hard times with economy right i would take it to a local shop someone you know someone u can trust and have proof of what it is on paper to show dealership if they dont want to fix it then u will hae to take it to another level, but according to you new brake pads new rotors, did you get these from dealer?? if so its there fault..if not theres a defect then with either the brakes and or rotors, now keep in mind to if your alignment is out or tires are wearing unevenly this can cause that vibrartion as well, a honda is a soup can on wheels so ur going to feel the road and vibrations all the time, but if its out of the ordinary and u know it u should look at these things, also chck your fluids, but more commonly though is the alignment for this iratic behavior if you live on or constantly drive on bumby roads it will jar the cars suspension loose over time and so hen u will brake it will cause the wheels to slightly move back and forth, but on the inside making you feel the car is falling apart. i hope i was some kinde f help to you if not im sorry. have a wonderful day.

How to change rear brake pads for a honda 2007 ridgeline

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

Honda Odessey 2002 - Rotor brake

Yes, depending on the quality of the rotor, in extreme conditions it can rust out quicker. The brake pad graps the rotor, 'cleaning' it as it stops the vehicle. If the vehicle sits for a long period of time then it is more likely to accumulate rust. If a rotor gets out of balance, (this is what causes your vibration) it needs to be remachined. The rotor can only be machined so many times before it is too thin to use. The rear rotor must be thinner than the front rotor. Since this is a vital part of your brake system, it's money well spent to help insure your safety.
