tnywragge: Awesome video! Exactly how it went changing the pads and installing new rotors on both front wheels of my 2004 Honda Accord LX. Went exactly the way you described it! Literally one side took me 30 minutes and the other side took probably 15 minutes. Super easy and inexpensive. I'll probably never have a professional brake job again. Saved around $400.00 doing it myself and not the Honda dealer. Honda dealership is such a ripoff! Thanks again for the awesome video!
dfgdfgsdf100: whats the size of that bolt you are using to help remove the rotor if it's stuck?
Hairless Hippy: I'm going to use this video this weekend to change my rotors and pads on a 2006 Honda Accord. I don't have a torque wrench.. how critical is it to use one? can't I just impact them tight, but I know torque ratings are there for a reason.. what do you think?
David: whats the tool you use to press the cylinder back in ?
mogtrader8: what do u docif the rotor screws are too tight. can it be drilled?
Cor66Vette: This is the most comprehensive and no nonsense tutorial on brake pad replacement I've yet to view. Great video. Thank you
Racer P: Man you do the best car repair videos!
peter d: Me I always clamp off the hose to the brake i am working on. Loosen the bleeder when I push the piston back in. It stops the gunk rust dirt from going into system. Abs especially. Then either power bleed them or put a block of wood under brake pedal so i do not destroy master cylinder.(hard knock) Full change of brake fluid. Done..
peter d: If you looked at the pads the inboard wore a lot more then the outboard. Lack of lubrication on pad lube points,Or the slide pins. Also the clips that the pads slide on are bad. they get grooved and worn, the stanless clips are cheap and insure a smooth movement of the pads. Always change those with new pads... For one side to not be equal means something was hanging up. Quick way to destroy new rotor have pads hang up on bad clips... Five bucks for clips do it right... Info, when you look at pads for wear look to see they are wearing equally. If they are not a quick removal and cleaning can save your pads and rotor. Remember to lube the contact point on pads. Change those cheap clips...
Ski Fall: LOLOL if it was that easy to remove your bracket bolts, some half ass mechanic must've worked on it. dangerous
Corkoth55: i notice you didn't mention if you crack open the brake fluid reservoir to relieve pressure when you retract the piston. and i see you didn't put the shim back on the new pads.
kazper2011: What would you recommend if the impact driver doesn't work? I tried it on my 02 accord and it worked for the front, but the back seemed totally seized. What type of hammer would you recommend hitting the driver with?
Dustin Vo: hey enjoyed your video. quality is great and very informative. quick question. the 17mm bolts are both stuck in the back. can you recommend any tips to loosen them? tried using breaker bar and its still difficult.
pfcchaidez: Thanks to you I now know how idiot I was that my brake metal fell off I say metal because my dumbass had no pad to speak of
Jesse T: can I use the silicone grease on the contact points of the brake pads instead of the copper anti-seize? couldn't find it at local auto parts store.
M Hamrin: Just bought an 07. Feel warped rotors when braking...now I'm going to change them out myself and save the cash...maybe i'll put the money into a cold air intake. Very good quality and concise video. Thanks to you!!!
Jabber Wookie: Good video on how to do a basic brake job. Nice that you're protecting your skin from the harsh chems and residue also.Another tip is when you are pushing the cylinder back into the caliper, open the brake bleeder and run a hose from it to a container. Inside the caliper is the worst environment for brake fluid collecting water (from the cylinder gap) and some nasty stuff from the heat involved. Pushing that stuff BACK into your lines is bad. I usually also take the extra step of replacing all fluid with a cheap harbor freight vacuum bleeder kit that is like less than $35. I can remove and replace all fluid and it really makes a difference in longevity and pedal feel. Cheers to a job well done!
Alexandru Popescu: What are some of the best after market brands for rotors and pads?.. thanks in advance
JohnBaker3000: Excellent! Very helpful. Thank-you for an excellent tutorial.
