Yes it's me again!

As some may know I recently bought some pads went to fit and realised the old pads were mate half worn maybe slightly more but still well serviceable!


Unfortunately the above things seem to be getting worse I am no novice when it comes to cars but I'd like a few more opinions.


I'm going to get some brake cleaner and spray it all up to see whether that helps.


I didn't want to put the new pads in if it's not the pads that are the issue!

Hi! I have the same promblem as you describe it. It´s my rear brakes, you can hear a constant grind(Kshhhhhh) even when you´re not brakeing. I saw that it wasn´t anything left on the pads on the left side and a little bit left on the right side. And as you know you shouldn´t change the rear pads before de front pads. Usually u change the front pads two times and the rear once, hope you know what i mean. So, i changed the pads to OEM honda pads and i did use paste on all the moving parts.
And it´s still the grinding noise:/ I´ve heard here in sweden that these civics have problem with there rear brakes. mabye it´s something wrong with the handbrake? anyone knows? (sorry for my bad english hope you guys understad me tho:))

I know there is a handrbrake fault that was recalled (search the thread on here for loosening) Also i get your theory on the front brakes as they are typically 60 to 80 per cent braking (not sure of hondas specific but taking into account handbrake use and the VSA the rears do wear down quickly.

Ive come to the conclusion my pads and calipers are gunked up and ill spray brake cleaner tonight or warped discs either one i will resolve and let everyone know!

Have you actually taken the inside pads out.
There should be a gap that splits the pad in half.
If this gap is not present the pads are shot.
Often with material left on the pad (that some people misconstrue as available pad).
The extra material covers the rivets or fixings that bind the pad material.
These fixings will grind on the disk metal-metal; if the pad remains doesnt get torn off ;)

Pad wear should be even on inside and outside.

If the disk face is no tdamaged in anyway and you have less than 0.5mm lip then you are probably OK with these disks.
Often you can file the lip off as this can sometime contact if too excessive.
Minimum rear disk thickness = 8mm
