    I don't suppose anyone has a owners manual to hand and can let me know the Honda recommended interval for changing brake fluid?

    Mines in the car which is currently in a garage having a stuck rear brake caliper fixed!

    Every three year but in reality it should be done yearly. is your car a tourer?

    Before you spend top dollar on a caliper ensure the handbrake is not binding they cause the disc to tug which gives the appearance the caliper is stuck due to the uneven brake pad wear..

    I have just fixed this issue on my tourer ..the calliper don't bind unless they have been wrongly handled whist doing brake service.

    Just to finish this one of, the caliper was well and truly stuck. The last brake service (prior to me buying the car) was from a well known high street fast fit chain so who knows what they did to the brakes.

    Either way the nice people at Warrantywise have funded the replacement of the caliper, a new set of discs and pads. All in just under £400, I'm glad I bought the warranty now.
