Default brake pad replacement

Hi,
I have put 40,000 km on my 2005 Honda Odyssey and have had no problems
thus far except the A/C condenser got hit by a stone and needed
replacement. Common design flaw (or should I say design intention) on
the Odyssey. Repair bill over 800 bucks to replace this. They stick
it right up front where it waits for rocks and pellets to hit it.
Anyway, I checked the front brake pads for wear by taking them out and
inspecting them and found that they had worn down but not enought that
they needed replacing, so I put them back on. I found that I didn't
need to take the wheel off to determine this; I could see the wear
level from the side of the caliper through the wheel rims. I bought a
full set of brake pads from a Honda dealer for the front and back
wheels and will replace them when I hit 50K km.
I need info on how to replace or remove the spark plugs out of the
engine. Are there any schematics out there on the engine compartment?

That's why lots of folks add mesh screen of various types / prices to
deflect stray pebbles that cost $800. You can buy all kinds or DIY. I've
used plastic gutter guard for one of my CR-V's but it was a lot of work.
Take a look at www.odyclub.com

Most condensers are out in the open!, The need air! Put some hardware wire
in front of it...Don''t Tailgate!! >


Get a manual from Helms
, They are the best and it will pay for itself in one job!

How about them Honda Brake pads. I have 86,000 miles on my 1999 4-cyl
Accord sedan and it still has the original pads. I bought OEM replacements
at about 30k in anticipation of them wearing out, but they are still sitting
on the shelf.

You're kidding! What's the mileage? I was surprised at the lack of
wear on the pads. I had a mind to return the pads but reconsidered
since I would eventually replace them anyway, but that's 160 bucks
sitting on my shelf in the garage, and I don't know if the dealer
would provide a refund for return.
