Default Honda Accord Front Brake Pads Replacement Guide + Pictures

I created a quick guide for changing out the front brake pads on a
2008 to 2010 Honda Accord sedan. It should be the same procedure on
the Accord coupe and other Honda vehicles like the Civic.

New pads range anywhere from $20 to $60 and you'll just need a few
common tools.

Here's the page - http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/H...lacement-Guide

I hope someone finds it to be useful.

Hmm.

Jack stands for "added" safety? I think you need to reconsider your regular
use of this concept.

No mention of the anti-squeal shims on the backs of the pads.

No mention of making sure the pins are still free to slide properly.

No mention of making sure the pads are loose on their mount bracket.

No mention of torque figures, or even the need to tighten stuff properly.

No mention of the dozen or so routine checks any good mechanic will perform
as a matter of course to detect problems that may be forming, while he's in
there doing the brake work in the first place.

It is completely unnecessary to remove the master cylinder reservoir cap
while pushing the piston back in.

Your howto is OK for those who are dealing with a very new car, and/or live
in a fairly warm, dry area. For anybody else, it's not so OK.

But then you never acknowledge any replies to your howto posts unless they
are complimentary, so you'll ignore this one too.

And here's this doozy:
"If your car is prone to brake squealing, apply a product such as the CRC
Disc Brake Quiet gel to the back of the new pads where they come in contact
with the caliper."

If the brakes squeal, You've done something wrong, or the pads are crappy
aftermarket. Or both.

And he still hasn't added the must do step to his oil change guide on making
sure the old filter gasket is completely gone from block despite it haven't
been pointed out...

Jeez give him a break. He says.....

Please note, I am not a professional mechanic. This guide is for
illustrative purposes only. If you have any doubts, do not proceed and
consult with your dealership. I assume no responsibility for damage to
your vehicle, persons, property or pets.

Would maybe give him a break if he responded to feedback and incorporated it
into said guide. But he just dumps an incomplete guide onto unsuspecting
people all the while asking for donations.

no dude, you're missing two important facts:

1. he's just a spammer asking for money.

2. he's a dangerous idiot without the first clue on either basic vehicle
maintenance safety or procedure.

bottom line - his postings are worse than worthless, they're positively
dangerous. if you're taken in one time by the thin veneer of "help"
that's portrayed, you need to wise up to the fact that he's a repeat
offender.
