Default 2030 Accord - caliper bolt turning direction

Hello,

Trying to change front pads on the 2003 Accord... caliper bolt is stuck
dead. Just to verify... on the left side, to losen I turn clockwise
(which would be counter-clockwise if looking from under the car).

Righty?


P.S. Sorry for crossposting.

righty tighty lefty loosey...

It would seem backwards from the perspective of facing the fender of the car.

Use some penetrating oil (don't get any on your barke disc or pads)

After a few bad experiences stripping few key bolts... just double-checking.

So, when facing the caliper from the outside, it is to the right to
loosen, correct?

I've never heard of caliper bolts being left hand thread. Only a driver
side AXEL hub nut would be left hand thread.

So counter clockwise to loosen. I thought that there was just a smaller
bolt to remove to SWING the caliper up to R & R the pads.

Unless things have changed recently, the only left hand threaded fasteners
that I'm aware of on a Honda are inside the transmission. Everything else
is right hand threaded, i.e., tightens clockwise and loosens
counter-clockwise.

Except if you own one of these,
http://www.accoutrements.com/products/10570.html. Then you can throw that
whole clockwise thing out the window...

That sounds right. I don't usually get confused, but when doing really
contorted things I like to set up a ratchet to loosen, then put it on the
fastener to see which way it resists.

Do you mean the slide pins?

They unscrew the usual way.

Use a 6-point socket and a long extension. It will crack loose.

You must live in the Rust Belt.
