yes , grove needs to be so it fits for the tab pin in middle of pad .Doesn't matter which of the 4 groves as you had to rotate to bring piston in .so make sure + says 3 6 9 12 and it should have a perfect fit?
Is there a way to see from the back to see if it it went in the groove properly?
There was a recall on the rear brakes which Honda seems to be very tight lipped on. My rear brakes went just over 14000 along with the rotors. They should have replaced them for freeTHanks the rear brake pad is all done now, do you know whats the average life of the front pad for 08 accord?
My rear pad was almost finished at 13000 miles, when should I start checking for the front?
