Default Brakes CR-V 01

Rotated tires today looks like the front pads are wearing down not on the
squeeler yet, but I can't see how much is left before they are on the
squeeler. Might have another 5k left only 34K on the odometer.

Is there another way to determine whats left on the pads without removing
the caliper? Should I wait till I hear the squeeler rubing?

When I replace the front pads, I am not going to turn the rotors, is there
somthing else I need to pay attention too.



Thanks
Tom

On some calipers there's a hole in the top that allows you to see both
pads. A good flashlight is necessary.

NO. ONLY the INNER pad has a squeal tab. The outer one does not. Do a
proper inspection.
