    Honda have issued the following TSB#HUK000000000018 dated 07-03-03 for the Stream RN1 & RN3 for model year 2001 & 2002.

    Symptom
    Vibrations are felt while braking, usually from high speed with hot brakes.

    Cause
    The design used for the Stream front brake discs have a low resistance to thermal distortion.

    Application to Production Line
    All 02YM and onwards will have the new design brake discs fitted on production.

    Measure the run out of the front brake discs. If it is determined that the brake judder is due to brake disc distortion, and the car is equipped with 01YM type discs then replace both the front discs and brake pads with 02YM type parts.

    Repair Method
    Repair to be carried out on customer complaint only. Replace the front brake discs and pads with 02YM parts as shown in the shop manual
