    Hi,

    I have noticed a metallic grinding noise coming from the offside rear wheel on my 21,000 mile 8th Generation Accord, I'm pretty sure it's the brake pads needing replacement. My question is: - as I am hoping to take delivery of my 2013 Accord EX next week is it worth me getting them replaced or will I be OK to run for another week and let the dealer have the expense of replacing them??

    just use a flashlight and see the thickness of the pads through the wheels. if you have some meat left then let it be.

    Nice one you are getting the new accord will your come with the TMPS?

    There looks to be a few mm left on them, but the noise is pretty horrendous, especially when reversing.

    Sorry, the car I'm getting is 6 months old, so I guess it will not have the TMPS, just waiting for the registration transfer, signed the papers for the car a week last Friday, so I hope it'll be ready for collection later this week, it's just down to the DVLA.
