  1. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hi guys, I've noticed my fn2 pulls to the left when braking fairly hard. Not noticed it when braking gently but when over about 1/2 the pedal travel it pulls. The steering wheel doesn't move at all. The pull would be enough to make me change lanes if braking from 50-60 and I didn't counter...

    I’ve only just joined this forum but hope it’s everything it looks. I have recently ventured into EP3 and FN2 refurbishment after years of working on other projects and now have many different parts available via eBay. Please see the items available below they are also available in other...

    Hi, Sorry if this has been asked before I have just joined. I have an 07 plate honda civic and the rear brake dust shields have rusted so bad they are just crumbling when I touch them. I can't seem to find replacements anywhere, are these necessary for when I change the brake discs and...

    So I recently upgraded from my ancient Ford Fiesta to 2011 Honda Civic Type S 1.4. I wanted an upgrade, something with more kick but still economical. Unfortunately I'm not a petrol head or mechanic, I wish I was. I purchased it from an independent dealer, someone who I half know. Very good...

    Hi All Hope everyone is safe and well at this strange time! The missus has a 2008 civic and I did read the sticky on removing stones from the brakes but is there a way to get stones out without removing the wheel or disc? It's making a hell of a racket! I have already jacked one side up...

    At almost 10 years old my car had its first repair today. My wife has been using the car most of the year as I was enjoying my E Class prior to mid-March and WFH. Anyway a few weeks ago she came home and advised me of a burning smell and heat at the back wheel. By the time I got out to it no...

    Hello. I haven't been out much in the Civic lately. Not much need to what with working at home etc. But on a trip to the grocery shop I noticed the rear brakes were squealing, so with a sunny weekend I thought I'd take a peek. Right side had one completely worn pad. turned out to be that the...

    Pads need changed all round, got them and I’m getting fed up waiting on my cousin (who’s a mechanic) getting back to me about when he’s free to do them. Read that you need a windback tool for the rear caliper piston although there’s videos on how to do it without the tool. Also that you have...

    Hey. I have 2012 White Civic 1,6 Diesel 130000km. Just found out the paint work is full of scratches and dents most likely from the brakes. Anyone with the same experience? Mads

    hi, My rear left brake makes a squealing sound(whilst driving) whenever I start it up, after not driving for more then a day. Today I start it up after not driving for about 5 days, same issue except this time it got stuck. I gave it some throttle and it made two loud clunks went back to normal...

    Hi guys, i sometimes give my car a hammering on the b roads, and my oem brakes just fade and fade, i was wandering if there are any options available for carbon ceramic discs and pads to go with them? I'm aware they are likely to be way more expensive but I'm prepared to pay a bit more for them...

    Hi Guys, First post on this forum, so Hi! Recently bought at Honda Civic Si 2.2 60 Plate Just had it serviced - at a Honda garage, have been told that the rear rhs brake is binding. They quoted me £260 to have new pads and discs installed - apparently the same disc has started to crumble...
  13. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    So i've been meaning to change the discs on my car for a year or 2, due to lipping on the inner and outer surfaces - Especially as the front create a groove in my pads on the inner edge - I can only think slightly smaller pads were used at some point? Took the plunge and ordered from Mtec -...

    Would people say these lines are genuine Goodridge stainless steel? Honda Civic Type-R FK2/3/FN2 07-10 Goodridge SS Black Brake Hoses SHD0390-6C | eBay I always thought the SS lines were more expensive than that? Need new pads all around so figured I'd go a bit further and have EBC slotted...
  15. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and Brakes (8G)
    Hi guys, I decided to change my brake pads today because my mechanic said my brakes were good and I didn't trust him because they were ringing my bells every-time I used and I was right! Proof! https://www.dropbox.com/s/b0ra14dbis6ou7o/2016-09-24%2009.32.35.jpg?dl=0 (I need to read the post...

    Hi, I'm trying to change my brake pads on 8th gen Civic, but I cannot access the pads because the caliper won't come off. I have removed the two bolts (sliding pin) but it will not budge. Any help would be much appreciated. James.

    Hi all , i recently got '07 civic type S 2.2 and was thinking of remapping but the stock brakes are renown for being crap so was looking at type R break pads and disks but would that help? And if it did what options do recommend on 1-200 budget?

    First problem - When I brake, I feel a shudder through the pedal that seems to only happy once per rotation of the wheel. If I brake hard the VSA/ABS lights come on and the shuddering stops completely - This is obviously because the ABS is turning off my problem is I don't know whats causing...
