Hi folks



I am in the process of replacing the rotors (pitted and rusted) in the back of my 2016 HRV.

I did the same on my wife's 2015 BMW X3 and the process seems to be the same even the torx bit is the same size.
People at the forums had complains that teh got warnings and the emergency brake would not engage but I did mine and i had no issues whatsoever.

It has been like 3 weeks and the car is working fine.


I have the rotors and pads on order and I will be doing it myself. FYI here is my rear right rotor pitted and all rusted:


Regards


Nick
Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for sharing. I can't seem to download it or even get it to load completely on my phone or laptop. They're both pretty quick and so is my internet. It hangs on chrome and Microsoft edge browsers on the PC and Opera browser on my phone.

So for the rear pads, do you wind both calipers back with torx bit, or is it just for the specific rotor with the e brake motor? I am needing to replace my rear pads, and am trying to see what all I need to get the job done. And if I also understand correctly, I need a special clamp to rotate the cylinder when compressing? Any help is greatly appreciated and I'm sorry if this answer is another thread.
I also need to change my brakes soon. This video might help you.

I replaced the brakes on my HRV a week ago. I followed the instructions in the video for the rear brakes and so far I haven't had any issues (knock on wood).
It's been a little over 3 months and about 2,000 miles since I replaced my brake pads using this procedure and no issues so far. I used Power Stop Z23 brake pads and they're not much different than oem pads. The oem pads might even be better. Unfortunately, we don't have much of a selection for performance pads that fit the oem calipers. Anyway, I'm grateful for the video and instructions.
