Changed the brakes and pads on all four wheels on my 7th Generation Tourer yesterday. I took some pics of the fronts so I’ll get them posted in the next week or two. I used Honda parts bought from Holdcroft at their special prices available to AOC members (cheers lads)....and decided to leave the “drilled/grooved/slotted/with a pic of Jensen Button on” ones for the children. The fronts were straighforward enough. It was a bit of a carry on getting the rear discs off...one of them took the best part of an hour, trying various options like the trusty hammer and screwing bolts in the discs, and cost me about £400 in the swearbox...but it came off in the end just by repeated pulling and pushing. There is an adjuster inside the drum to loosen the handbrake pads, but it was Catch 22...I didn't know where to look for it through the inspection hole because I'd not done one before and I couldn't get the *!&%$"@ disc off to find it LOL. The other back one only took about 5 mins though. What I found most interesting is that doing the job kind of confirmed to me the theory I posted here that many of these Accord brake issues probably arise just through lack of TLC … http://hondakarma.com/threads/386/ The sliders were as dry as a bone on all four brakes, there was some black material caked on the end of the front sliders that I took off with wet and dry, most of the pads were more or less stuck fast in situ with no apparent movement whatsoever, and the handbrake pads were adjusted too tight and binding inside the drum on both brakes. So no wonder I was getting all these brake binding noises and issues every now and again. Conventional forum wisdom seems to be that if the brakes bind the solution is to go out and buy a caliper or a brake hose (super-duper F1 braided variety with go-faster stripes in Ferrari red)...but I suspect all that is needed a lot of the time is an unglamorous clean-up and lube.
