    Hello, new to forum after trading in my old Civic for a 2004 CR-V....just had it checked over and my spannerman pal told me that among other things that I can source online I also need a Brake Caliper Bracket/carrier which I can't find anywhere, does anyone have any ideas? Sorry if this is posted in wrong place as I said new here.

    Hi Robert,
    Calliper and carriers come together you cannot get a new carrier from Honda, Your best bet is a scrap yard.

    BTW what is wrong with the existing carrier?

    Hi Robert and welcome.
    Are you sure your friend don't mean the calliper is shot as the carrier is a solid piece of metal and very unlikely to seize.

    Brett carriers are solid pieces of metal but the have the slider pins which moved the calliper closer as the pad wears and the piston extends to maintain contact, it keep both self adjusting. if these pins seize then self adjusting aspect fails. So calliper slider pins do seize due to lack of servicing, cleaning and using the wrong grease.

    Robert you need to get the sliders out of the carrier and then clean the surface with sandpaper & oil (fine paper) then debur the cavity using a high speed wire brush then slide the pin into the cavity and check for resistance then lube it with high temperature silicone grease don't use copper grease.

    No i don't text your mate and ask him to attempt to repair it, kit and kaboodle yes if you have money burning a hole in your pocket.
