    Hi i have a 2009 2.2 petrol accord and the pass side caliper is sticking, i have had this freed a few time now and have the same issue drivers side is fine but pass side is an issue, is this a known fault and can anyone recommend where i buy one from, been quoted £185 plus vat for 1 and that is not a honda caliper.

    Hi @Falcoron
    I had a similar problem when my Accord was in for a service in December, Honda fitted a new piston and seals which they held in stock, so far so good. So may be worth a look into.

    I would suggest to by a repair kit for caliper, just doing it to my back calipers in few days, this is well known issue for Accords, mine is CL9 petrol 2006 6f209d72e64deb3c254d2820f691a75b.

    You will probably find your pins are OK. Have you tried Bigg red Bigg Red. Brake Caliper Repair Kit brake calliper spare/re-ferb, they may be able to help, used them before on my old Accord.

    What is the point going for OEM parts here. I paid 28 eur for kits for both wheels, they will serve me as good as genuine parts. Just give all the parts good cleaning job, replace rubber parts and done. My 2cent

    Got my caliper kit in Canada, once you have the part number they are the same the world over, half the price, I bought 2 kits, one for each caliper, I've done both rear.

    As per my previous post in this thread Honda Lincoln fixed my near side in December, however it now needs doing again. Not a happy bunny just woundering how I stand the invoice just mentions warranted work for three months or words to that effect.

    Do you know for sure which part/s are sticking?
    Is it the slider pin/s?
    The caliper piston?
    Other?
    Its worth tackling this yourself as it maybe a recurring issue.

    thats why i decided to replace brake pads myself. Seems daunting at the beginning, but with the help on, you'll be so glad you did.

    I've done both rear calipers with the caliper kit from Honda. Chances are it is the piston. When I "reconditioned" mine I noted that there were speckles of rust/metal in the cylinder that was preventing the piston from going back once the brakes were released. Anyway if you just replaced the seals without doing a proper cleaning of the cylinder and piston the problem would no doubt reoccur. I've done mine now about 2 years ago and have not had a re-occurrence. That's my 2 cents worth.

    IMHO, never mess about with caliper rebuild kits, just buy a professionally reconditioned OEM caliper for £50-odd, take 10 minutes to fit it, then get on with your life.

    Try Brakes International online.

    I agree, leave the caliper rebuild to people who do it every day.

    However, if the problem keeps re-occurring then you may need to bite the bullet.

    Had the same with mine on rear drivers side.
    After many strip downs and cleaning this still dident solve the problem.
    Changed the brake lines with new brake fluid and still no luck.
    In the end I found a recon one from Europarts and problems solved for £78.
    BTW the calliper was from a 7th Generation tourer and fitted perfect.

    Guys don't get me wrong but you or your local master must have only 3 fingers on both hands together to do something wrong with caliper rebuild kit.

    There is a certain skill with caliper rebuilds and noone gets it right on their first try. As with all things in life, the more you do something, the easier it becomes
