Rear Brakes: Replacing Pads, 7th generation accord 2.4 facelift Well 1st attempt at changing the pads. Was planning to do the very minimum, but alas no. - Divers side rear, the top pin was 90% seized and rusty (see photo - Car seemed to drive ok thou, and no weird noises) The inside of the rubber root was orange with rust. Cleaned it all up with fine emery cloth, and applied lots or cera-tec grease. Bottom pin was ok, but I cleaned off the old grease and applied fresh grease anyway. The vacuum in the pin boots seemed to stop the pins sliding as freely as they should, but thought this will sort it self out as the brakes operate. Piston seemed to wind back ok. Assembled and torqued up. - Passenger side. Both pins seemed to slide ok. But took both pins out and wiped the old grease off and applied new grease. Assembled and torqued up. Brake fluid level now just below the maximum level At first the brake pedal seemed to go all the way down a number of times, but seemed ok later on. I guess that is normal after a pad change. The car stops - lol All seems ok.
