years ago they used a plate between the pad and piston which you also put a smear of coppaslip onto then assembled, if neither work it can only be the make of pad as the compounds are different between makers

i've just got used to it. got to the point that i want brakes that squeal on a performance car.
My current DBA discs/PBS pads combo dont squeal anywhere near as bad as the OEM discs & OE pads/HC800's.
could be lack of proper use yet or just the added mass of the DBA's changing the vibration frequency/tendency.

|mikeyw85||Might started to squeal a day after the first time i took it out on a spirited run. They've since calmed down again after steady breaking over the following few days.|

Sucks when a dealer doesn't want to know of customer issues...
So far, my FK8 hasn't had the 5>4th issue or any brake squeal issues yet.. Been pretty faultless to date...
Only weird thing was that according to the Honda data link - my brake fluid is low... But I haven't been using the car.. Will check to make sure I don't have a leak anywhere.. :/

Bad news that, was hoping that would of been the end of it.
I've also had pm's from an fk2 owner experiencing 4th gear issues, he's booked in tomorrow so should hear back.
His is a 2017 plate, I'm convinced this is due to being American made, 15 plates were Swindon made and I'm sure I've not heard of a box issue, there after it's been issue after issue with both models

Ash sorry to see you sold.
In many ways the fk8 is flawless.
In many ways it isnít.
Iíve just had a gearbox replaced , and low and behold the very same lock out symptom from 5>4 gear has returned. Much to my frustration. I am in a group chat with other owners who are experiencing the same issues plus more.

Sorry to hear about the lack of sympathy from your Honda dealer.
This problem does not affect all Type R's because mine is fine.....however this will be of little consequence to you.
Surprised to hear what you are replacing your FK8 with....couldn't be more polar opposite.
Range Rover is an amazing vehicle but I wouldn't buy one for 2 reasons - I couldn't afford one and it wouldn't fit inside my garage.
|2nd April 2018 11:08|
Oh well. Thatís what Honda gets. Sorry to hear that youíre disappointed. Sucks when they couldnít care less. Idiots!!

|dweezle||The chap from the clips did the same, sold up and got an amg|

Honda wouldn't accept any fault.
I appreciate it will make some noise, but it was so loud it was ridiculous.
Decided to sell the car. This was one of the reasons.
They just lost a 11 year customer

|scotty44||Yep, sure is a head turner.... not the car the squealing|
|13th November 2017 18:17|
One of his clips
|13th November 2017 18:13|
Cold weather doesn't help,
There's a chap on the TRO forum who posted a clip of his and it's bloody loud, the dealer and Honda have declined it as an issue, I know they squeak but his was another level
|13th November 2017 17:33|
My dealer told me (way in advance, well because I wasn't allowed to test drive the new demonstrator that day) that the brakes need a 500 km break in phase, otherwise there is a high risk of them being horrible afterwards.
I guess I'll ask for details what and how that is supposed to be done.

All I can say is that it did seem to help things.
