Hey everyone,

Car: 2005 Honda Accord Sedan

So there is problem with the rear brake on the passenger side sticking. And its been happening for a few weeks now. However, now it is at the point where it is metal rubbing on metal and its sounds bad so I want to get this fixed ASAP.

Firstly, is there anyway I can fix the sticking? What tools should I buy to get this done? And how would I do it?

Secondly, I saw some pretty cheap brake kits on ebay. Has anyone had any bad or good experiences buying replacement brake pads and rotors on ebay?

You need to first check both upper and lower slider pins and see if they are seized. If they are then that's your problem. If after lubricating the slider pins and the caliper still sticks, then you have to check if the piston is moving properly. If not, it's best to replace the caliper. Also check your e-brake of course to make sure it's all the way down.

You did not provide a lot of info for us to really help you.

What is the mileage of the car?
Is it an L4 or a V6? Is there a lot of rust on the brake caliper/slider pins?
When is the last time you had rear brake serviced?
Why do you think it sticking on one side? Is the grinding noise continuous when you tap the brake or all the time?

If you have the rear brake service more than 25K ago, it is probably time again. It is possible that your brake pads are completely worn and it is grinding against your rotors. You may have to replace your rotors if the brake pads gouged them too deep. I'd have brought them to a brake shop a few weeks ago when the noise started. Even if you don't know how to work on the brake, you should at least open up the rear wheels and inspect the brake pads and rotors to determine the wear level on the pads what damages are on the rotors, so you don't get ripoff by the shop.

Ohok. I took it to a shop, and the Honda dealer and they both say that the caliper is in need of being replaced. Moreover, the pads and the rotor will have to be done also.
