RAS954, how are the new rotors and pads? i will be doing my rear rotors soon, strange grooves on the driver side. The front rotors are fine so there must be a problem with the rear design.
That's what I am thinking. The old ones were so jammed that I had to pound them out. I will work on them this weekend. ThanksOn other Hondas, the caliper metal corrodes UNDER the stainless steel clips/slides. You take the slides off, file the metal, then apply brake grease before re-fitting the SS clips.
Sometimes with aftermarket pads, you need to file the edges of the backing plates, too. Goal is to have them 'falling-out' loose.
The rears seem to pose issues first because 1. they are in road spray/salt and 2. the rear brakes never get as hot as the fronts (so the bits retain water).
