    How do I solve a VERY soft brake pedal?
    My brake pedal got pretty squishy recently, so I figured it was time to do the brakes. I changed pads and shoes. Also changed front calipers. Bled everything out extensively and the pedal was very soft - like I can push it to the ground and barely lock up the ...

    Are the clips on the ends of brake pads necessary?
    Just replaced front pads with the top inside cilp(anti-rattle?) missing on the driver side wheel and the bottom inside clip missing on the passenger side wheel. The brakes seem fine but I'm concered that without the clips there could be damage?

      It won't cause damage. Pads won't be able to separate away from caliper bracket but it may cause a chatter or noise when braking. It is recommended that they are on the pads.

      It means that there is a problem with the front brakes and there is something causing the pass side brake to overheat which could be a bad caliper or brake hose. Kind of an unusual thing to happen on an almost new vehicle. Someone with brake experience needs to be told what you said here about the hot wheel and then they have to check it and make a diagnosis. Do you plan on doing any repair work yourself or will you take it to someone? I can details some things to check but you have to take it apart and follow my instructions.

      one shop told me that it is the caliper but without seeing it he just drove the car, So I will take it to Honda dealer tomorrow.

      Thats great, I am sure they will solve this but you are going to pay a huge premium bringing it to them. If they replace the front calipers you will pay for new calipers not rebuilt. Expect $1000+ at least.

      Have you checked your brake fluid? It may be low. Or worn out brake pads.

    Can one resurface the rotors themselves? Or how much would that cost to get that done? Or is it better to replace?
    I own Honda Civic 2006 I was getting to hear noise off and on not everyday, noise would come and go every few days while driving on a highway. I have been informed by the dealer that my brakes are gone and rotors need to be resurfaced. The cost involved being HONDA ...

      The rotor resurfacing is often more expense than replacing the rotors. It depends on; the surface condition of the rotor (inboard and outboard) friction surfaces, and the thickness of the rotors remaining. Resurfacing the brake rotors requires a specialized piece of equipment called a brake lathe.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the brake rotors from around $13.60 each and the front disc brake pads from around $6.10 (axle set) for your vehicle. These aftermarket parts are same as OEM (original) quality genuine parts - you do not need to have the dealership perform this work.

      To get an idea of how simple and how to perform this work - check these websites; www.AutoMD.com and the 'How-To-Guides' or www.autozone.com for the specific steps.

    Took in for B1 service at dealer, over $200. Told brakes had to be lubricated as not done at factory
    (Mileage is 26,000. Cost includes oil change, rotate tires and usual inspections.)

      So basically, you paid $200.00 for an engine oil and filter change. All the other B1 service items are simple inspections.

      If the dealership has noticed a factory defect - in the brake calipers need lubricating - why are they not taking care of this defect for you? They should be doing everything in their power to correct the situation - especially if the vehicle is still under the warranty period at 26k miles. If this were my vehicle - I'd make an insistance.

      I'd recommend finding a new delearship, or better yet - purchase a repair manual and learn to perform these basic maintenance items yourself in the future.

    A "woo-woo" scraping sound.
    A "woo-woo" scraping sound from my rear wheel when I first start out, then OK. I don't use the parking brake very often.

      Need more information - what type of noise? Under what conditions - during start-up, during idle speeds? Please post a reply with as many details as possible for further assistance. Use the 'Diagnose' feature on the AutoMD website for guidelines.
