Default Where does one get for a 95 Integra brake: boots for the slide pin?

Hi All

Just did a rear brake job on my integra and noticed that the slide pin was
totally rusted solid to the bracket. I got it loose - it took some
persuading and was a character building exercise.

Just out of general principle, I'd like to replace the pin and the boot -- I
lubed it all up and will be ok for now, but imagine it will happen again..
The local dealer tells me that the boot does not have a part number -- it
comes only with a caliper. I did order a slide pin. I find this hard to
believe because boots do get old and brittle. One would imagine that if the
slide pin needs replacing, it most likely needs replacing because the boot
failed and junk got in. So it doesn't make sense that I can get one and not
the other.

Has anyone ever needed to replace a boot? If so, where did you get it?

Appreciate the help as always.
Remco

The slide pin seized because either
1) It was assembled with no rubber grease
2) It was not serviced in a long time
3) The boot was incorrectly installed in its grooves to begin with
4) It was cracked or abraded.

If the boot is not cracked or abraded, it is not necessary to replace it.

Get yourself a tube of Sil-Glyde rubber grease. Sand off all the rust on
the pins and load the pin and boot up with Sil-Glyde.

In a few days, I will be uploading a new revision of the Unofficial Honda
FAQ, which will contain a 5-page dissertation--with photos--on how to
correctly service your brakes in areas that get bad winters.

Thanks for the Sil-Glide tip - you learn something new every day.
My boot was cracked so that's how the junk got in.

I found a replacement boot from a parts list on a 93 Civic Si so will use
the Sil-Glide when I get it in.
Thanks again and will be looking for your Honda FAQ

I've already uploaded it.

The brake service portion is here:
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/rusty...rakeintro.html

The section on the boots and pins is in there somewhere. Gotta read it all.

It's just new and I haven't proof-read it properly yet, and there are some
awkward sentences, transposed letters, that sort of thing, so please excuse
any errors. In fact, if you spot any really bad ones, please email me.

I wonder about that. I just asked my parts guy at the local dealership.

Apparently the boots for 94 and up only come as part of a kit that contains
all the rubber components for the caliper. That kit costs anywhere from $30
to $60 depending on the caliper.

When he calls up the parts diagram on their computer, that kit is plainly
shown along with its part numbers.

He did also say that you can get the boots for 90-93, which are close in
size and are available individually, and just force them in, which is what
they do at his dealership.
