2003 Honda Odyssey Brake grinding noise

We had our brakes done at 38,000 miles and recently replaced our OE tires with Yokohama TRZ's at about 43,000. From the moment I left the tire replacement place there was a significant grinding in the front brakes. Still, 3,000 miles later, it won't go away.

    You should check the inside pads of the front tires and rear tires(requires taking the wheel off).

    See if the pad thickness is the same as the outside pads.



    We have had issues with our brakes and it seems many others have as well but honda is not wanting to provide the real answer to the issue.



    Let me know what you find.

Yikes! Do I understand this? You've had the grinding noise for 3k miles? Well, too late now, but you should have gone right back to the tire installer, and asked if they could pull the tire off and take a look. They probably wouldn't want to, but it sounds like they may have had something to do w/ this noise. (but I really don't know what could have happened) Sometimes a small pebble can get lodged in the brake rotor and shield, but it will fall out (sometimes) when you back up, or it grinds down enough that it just falls out on it's own. It wouldn't still be there making noise. Does this grinding happen only when you put the brakes on, or all the time? I would recommend a visit to a trustworthy garage for a check asap, as if it is a brake problem, you should have it fixed right away. Let me know the answer to my above questions, as I'd like more info to figure this out. Let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

2000 Honda Odyssey making squealing noise when I turn


Sounds like the brake pad wear indicator tab on the inner brake pad as the pads sometimes wear out unevenly due to stiky brake calliper slides. You would have to remove the wheel to inspect it.

Looking into buying a used 2003 honda odyssey with just over 100,000 miles. what maintence is required? i heard timing belt should be replaced. is this true and how much am i looking at?


For a 2003 used Honda odyssey, the following should be required:-

1. Replace the timing belt. (repair estimates at www.repairpal.com)
2. Drain the whole oil out of the engine and transmission
3. Replace the brake pads
4. Most of all run a diagnosis scan on the vehicle to detect any other possible maintenance that will be required.

Good luck and a good buy.

Take care.

Normal 20,000 mile service, what is done?


T Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} he 20,000 mile service is a minor service. This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
and a safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses inspecting for any fluid leaks,, listening for any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.

Recommendations
  • We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
  • If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
  • Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.

Noise from rear suspension on 2003 Honda Odyssey.


a clunking clanging noise sounds very much like your stabilizer bar end links and bushings. you have a thin rear "sway" bar on the rear of your odyssey. this can cause a whole lot of noise. grab each side and pull/push. if it feals loose, replace the end links and bushings.

2006 Honda Odyssey brake problems


Sounds like there is a problem with these vehicles and that Honda are aware of it, and at least some dealerships are being honest about it. Check out the forum on fixya from other Odyssey owners here.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but I can only suggest you go back to the dealership and quote this "Honda Tech Line Summary Article",
#ATS050707..."Grinding, Growling Noise from the Front Brakes - A grinding,
growling noise when applying moderate to hard pedal pressure at low speeds
is caused by the brake pad friction material. An improved material will
be announced in a forthcoming Service Bulletin."
Ask them if there has been a fix developed for this problem yet.

Hope this helps,
Mark.
