2008 Honda Civic Si 4 Cyl 2.0L
Just installed my rear brake pads and rotors, but when I tighten up the tires, they won't move. Why?
I used the right tools to compress the piston and everything, everything seems fine but when I put the wheel back and tighten the lug nuts, the tires won't move (even when I turn on the car and put reverse).
Something is rubbing. Do this.....remove the tires or tire and reinstall and tighten the lug nuts with the tire off. So you are really just tightening the rotor to the hub. It would help to pit a few washers or maybe a spacer under the wheel nots. The wheel nuts need be tight but not so tight as when the wheel is one. Now you will be able to see what is rubbing and freezing you up and where. I will assume that until you begine to tighten the lug nuts that the rotor turns smoothly?
