Honda CR-V: Front Brake

Front Brake Pad Inspection and Replacement

Special Tools Required

Brake caliper piston compressor 07 AAE-SEPA 101

CAUTION

Frequent inhalation of brake pad dust, regardless of material composition, could be hazardous to your health.

Inspection

1. Raise the front of the vehicle, an support it with safety stands in the proper locations.

2. Remove the front wheels.

3. Check the thickness (A) of the inner pad (B) and outer pad (C). Do not include the thickness of the backing plate.

Brake pad thickness:

Standard: 11.5-12.2 mm (0.45-0.48 in.)
Service limit: 1.6 mm (0.06 in.)

4. If the brake pad thickness is less than the service limit, replace all of the front brake pads as a set.

5. Clean the mating surface of the brake disc and the inside of the wheel, then install the front wheels.

Replacement

1. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder.

2. Raise the front of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations.

3. Remove the front wheels.

4. Remove the flange bolt (A) while holding the caliper pin (B) with a wrench. Be careful not to damage the pin boot, and pivot the caliper (C) up out of the way. Check the hose and pin boots for damage and deterioration.

5. Remove the brake pads (A) and the pad shims (B).

6. Remove the pad retainers (A).

7. Clean the caliper bracket (B) thoroughly; remove any rust, and check for grooves and cracks.

8. Check the brake disc for damage and cracks.

9. Apply a thin coat of M-77 assembly paste (P/N 08798-9010) to the retainers on their mating surfaces (indicated by the arrows) against the caliper bracket.

10. Install the pad retainers. Wipe excess assembly paste off the retainers. Keep any assembly paste off the discs and pads.

11. Mount the brake caliper piston compressor (A) on the caliper body (B).

12. Press in the piston with the brake caliper piston compressor so the caliper will fit over the brake pads. Make sure the piston boot is in position to prevent damaging it when pivoting the caliper down.

NOTE: Be careful when pressing in the piston; brake fluid might overflow from the master cylinder's reservoir. If brake fluid gets on any painted surface, wash it off immediately with water.

13. Remove the brake caliper piston compressor.

14. Apply a thin coat of M-77 assembly paste (P/N 08798-9010) to the pad side of the shims (A), the back of the brake pads (B) and the other areas indicated by the arrows. Wipe excess assembly paste off the pad shims and brake pads.

Contaminated brake discs or brake pads reduce stopping ability. Keep grease and assembly paste off the brake discs and brake pads.

15. Install the brake pads and pad shims correctly.

Install the brake pad with the wear indicator (C) on the upper inside. If you are reusing the brake pads, always reinstall the brake pads in their original positions to prevent a temporary loss of braking efficiency.

16. Pivot the caliper down into position. Install the flange bolt (A), and tighten it to the specified torque while holding the caliper pin (B) with a wrench. Be careful not to damage the pin boot.

17. Clean the mating surface of the brake disc and the inside of the wheel, then install the front wheels.

18. Press the brake pedal several times to make sure the brakes work.

NOTE: Engagement may require a greater pedal stroke immediately after the brake pads have been replaced as a set. Several applications of the brake pedal will restore the normal pedal stroke.

19. Add brake fluid as needed.

20. After installation, check for leaks at hose and line joints or connections, and retighten if necessary.

Test-drive the vehicle, then check for leaks.

Front Brake Disc Inspection

Runout

1. Raise the front of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations.

2. Remove the front wheels.

3. Remove the brake pads.

4. Inspect the brake disc surface for damage and cracks. Clean the brake disc thoroughly, and remove all rust.

5. Install suitable flat washers (A) and wheel nuts (B), and tighten the wheel nuts to the specified torque to hold the brake disc securely against the hub.

Honda CR-V. Conventional Brake Components

6. Set up the dial gauge against the brake disc as shown, and measure the runout at 10 mm (3/8 in.) from the outer edge of the brake disc.

Brake disc runout: Service limit: 0.04 mm (0.0016 in.)

7. If the brake disc is beyond the service limit, refinish the brake disc with an on-car brake lathe. The Kwik-Lathe produced by Kwik-Way Manufacturing Co. and the "Front Brake Disc Lathe" offered by Snap-on Tools Co. are approved for this operation.

Max. refinishing limit: 26.0 mm (1.02 in.)

NOTE:

Thickness and Parallelism

1. Raise the front of the vehicle, and support it with safety stands in the proper locations.

2. Remove the front wheels.

3. Remove the brake pads.

4. Using a micrometer, measure the brake disc thickness at eight points, about 45º apart and 10 mm (3/8 in.) in from the outer edge of the brake disc. Replace the brake disc if the smallest measurement is less than the max. refinishing limit.

Brake disc thickness:
Standard: 27.8-28.1 mm (1.09-1.11 in.)
Max. refinishing limit: 26.0 mm (1.02 in.)

Brake disc parallelism: 0.015 mm (0.0006 in.) max.

NOTE: This is the maximum allowable difference between the thickness measurements.

5. If the brake disc is beyond the service limit for parallelism, refinish the brake disc with an on-car brake lathe. The Kwik-Lathe produced by Kwik-Way Manufacturing Co. and the "Front Brake Disc Lathe" offered by Snap-on Tools Co. are approved for this operation.

NOTE: If the brake disc is beyond the service limit for refinishing, replace it.

Front Brake Caliper Overhaul

CAUTION

Frequent inhalation of brake pad dust, regardless of material composition, could be hazardous to your health.

Remove, disassemble, inspect, reassemble, and install the caliper, and note these items:

NOTE: Make sure that the caliper pins are installed correctly. Upper caliper pin B and lower caliper pin A are different.

If the these caliper pins are installed in the wrong location, it will cause vibration, uneven or rapid brake pad wear, and possibly uneven wear.
