    I'm having a tough time finding directions on how to replace the rear calipers on a gen 6 accord with the disk/rotor e-brake... the closest thing I found is a youtube video for 03-07 gen 7 rear, which looks very similar. Does anyone else know where directions are? If not, I'll roll with the...

    My rear calipers on my 2008 ex-l coupe have seized again and its time they need replacement. I was going to invest in the acura RL calipers for upfront, but to save money would it be possible to put my front calipers to the rear? I dont see a point in paying 500$ for new rear calipers when i can...
  4. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    I just replaced my rear pads and rotors about two weeks ago, and saw that one of the caliper pins was seized (waiting for this weeks paycheck to get some new ones). I drove up to NY (about 300 mile one way trip) and all was fine, but since I've returned, I've noticed that if I even tap on the...

    On accords, the brakes have a shim that is placed between the bracket for the calliper and what it is drilled into. I want to know what is the part number for the shim so i can buy some more? The shim goes here (see pic)

    I have a quick question about my rear caliper on my 05 v6 sedan. I was trying to screw in the caliper and realized I forgot to open the bleeder valve so it was just building up pressure, so I then opened the valve and got it screwed in all the way and heres the part I have a question.... I...

    I have seen a seller on eBay selling caliper decals that hold up to heat. You can have it say accord Honda or Brembo. I was wondering your thoughts. My car is a 13 sport and thought it would add a nice touch without being ricey. And thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello! I've got a quick question. (edited to add that I have a 2007 4cyl Accord.) Let me start with what got me here. I went in for inspection this morning, was told I needed rear brake pads and rotors. Okay, fine. They did them, I've got nice shiny, new rotors in the back now, but taking a...

    To do the Advics BBK you need a few things listed below. The result is giant 4 piston calipers and 324mm rotors. Cutting the rotor backing plate may not be necessary. You could bend it out of the way. Front left and right calipers from Acura RL 2005-2009 made by Advics. Acquire these from eBay...

    How do you remove the parking brake cable from the caliper on a 98 accord ex v6. I've taken the cable end off the lever on the caliper, but I can't remove it from the bracket. Is it pressed in the opening of the bracket on the caliper or is there a tool or what? I think I need to replace the...

    I have always wanted a set of slotted rotors. I found a set of zinc plated slotted / drilled rotors for 149 shipped so I said why not? I slapped on a set of Wagner Ceramic pads and painted my calipers while I was at it. And while I was at it, I learned a much easier way...
  12. Problems & Solutions
    After installing a new rear brake caliper and bleeding the brakes I snapped off the bleeder valve screw while tightening it. I think the whole neighborhood heard me screem. Anyway, I already finished bleading the system, but now I'm torn over whether I should extract the bleeder screw now...
