Default Looking for service bulletin link for 2003 Accord brakes issue

There was sometime back when a link was posted for a service bulletin
about the 03 accord brake issue where the pads and I think rotors get
replaced b/c of a recall. The 03 accord I own was not subject to that
recall. So the honda's owner page does not show me this recall, only
the most current one out (2gear issue). However the brakes issue is
now beginning to happen to me. I want to print out the info from the
service bulletin b/c I'm not going to pay for the repairs. The car
only has about 12000 miles on it and it shouldn't be doing that. I can
feel the steering wheel horribly shaking when I apply the brakes. The
sooner the better I get the link b/c I'm bringing it to get the 2gear
recall fixed this weekend.
Thanks for the help!!!

You are looking for bulletin 03-069. This describes a repair for vehicles
with "front brake noise or judder". The repair is to resurface the rotors
and replace the pads. This is NOT a recall. This bulletin only applies to
certain vehicles within a specified VIN range.

Honda Doc,

Thank you for getting back to me. Do you know where I might find a
link to bulletin 03-069? I would to print it out to bring with me to
the dealer.
Also I'm aware that this was only geared towards a specific VIN
because it's happened to a few other people I know that have the same
make & model, but just bought it earlier in the year than I did. I
know this is now the case with my car, the steering wheel shakes when
braking at high speeds. It also began to happen after they rotated my
tires for the first time. By the way, they've only been rotated once.
I just want to have this taken care as soon as possible. Thank you
again for your help.

Ed,

Thanks for the reply. I was wondering though, if there's another link
that I don't have to pay for to see the bulletin? The link I
originally saw a while back was not a pay situation.

The service bulletin mentioned, # 03-069 is just that, a "service buletin".
It advises Honda Technicians of a problem being seen with a frequency more
than expected. It explains the factory recommended solution to the problem.
The specific solution on this bulletin is to cut the rotors to eliminate the
warpage and replace the brake pads. It also defines the range of vehicles
affected and if they are within the warranty period, then warranty will
apply if your within the specified VIN range and under warranty. IT IS NOT A
RECALL. The range of vehicles is identified with perhaps an out of spec part
installed when built and the factory recognizes its responsibility to
replace these parts and any associated part that would be affected.
Warped rotors are usuallly caused by either incompatible rotor and pad
combinations (perhaps the reason for this update or service bulletin),
improperly torqued wheels when you had a rotation, or overheating the brakes
such as riding the brake pedal while driving or other extreme condition
(towing, lots of downhill driving, etc).
Depending on your relationship with your dealer (ie: are you his customer or
do you only go there for the free things) you may be eligible for a goodwill
gesture by the dealership. If they can't pinpoint a normal cause they may
consider it a warranty issue or they may just not charge you.But don't just
go in the there with an adamant attitude that you're not going to pay for it
and demand they fix it. "You catch more flies with honey".
Also, remember, it is NOT A RECALL and not a mandated repair by the the
National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) which forces
or instructs manufacturers to issue recall notices and enforces recalls. It
is only a recognition and suggestion to properly repair a specific symptom.
Good luck.
Howard

your tires were only rotated once in 12k miles??? the bulletin only
applies to certain vehicles. it will be up to the dealer on this one.
if your service history is sketchy with them they may not help. \

Is that always an issue? My '01 Accord has 108,000 miles on it and I've
never rotated my tires. I replace them at 50K (I'm on my 3rd set, including
stock) and my tires continue to wear evenly.

As far as I know, tires don't have to be rotated, it's just to even things
out IF they aren't wearing evenly.

That is really unusual. In front wheel drive cars the front tires get the
lion's share of wear. When I had a Dodge 600, our first front wheel drive
car, I didn't rotate the tires. The rear tires lasted through three sets of
front tires - about 50K miles.
