    Got a -92 lude and need to know if rear brakes are Nissin or Akebono, I know my fronts are Akebono since I bought Nissin install clips for them and they didn't fit (and ofc can't find new Akebono clips online.) but have no idea about the rears. Buying new rotors is a pain in the ass. I'm only...

    Hey I recently got a new set of rotors and pads from RDA and the front rotors are to thick, just wondering if anyone knows the thickness they should be as the 282/11.1" is to thick

    Hey guys, So I've got a 2001 prelude and everything was going nice and smooth until the weather started getting a little chillier. I recently started noticing that when I press the brakes hard enough, they'll make a nice clunk sound, then once I let off and start accelerating the car will clunk...

    Hi All, Have an 86 lx in which I just replaced the master cylinder and booster and have plenty of pad left. I've bled them until, when not moving, they are tight. I've run all the tests in the big shop manual and it passes them all- all cylinders are fine, booster and master are fine, and there...

    I have a 1989 honda prelude 2.0s automatic Ok the piston on the rear caliper screws back in to make room for the new pads? it has + shaped indentation. what is the best way and tool to screw it back in (clockwise??) How hard is it to get it back in far enough to put the new pads in?

    Hey folks, I picked up my 3rd gen prelude on sunday (started a build thread on here, maybe you've seen it?) Anyway, the ALB light is on on the dash, what could be causing this? I'm not used to Hondas so any info would be great :D Cheers

    I need to know this asap please. i tried looking at part numbers in honda it shows up different but in others it does not such as autozone napa etc. so does anyone know for certain?

    As a rule of thumb I try to avoid autozone replacement parts for my vehicle. With the brake pads though, I couldn't really see a legitimate reason to go with something else for DD uses. At about $50 for the front pad set, I feel they're more than reasonable for what you get. They're ceramic, so...

    Hey ya'll, So I was due to change my brake fluid and I also wanted to repaint my calipers, so I took all of my brakes off the car. After getting them back on and adjusted properly, I got my girlfriend to help bleed them (yeah, that's right :p). That all went fine, got plenty of air bubbles...

    Hey everyone. Yet another post in the fail that is my attempt at working on my car. So, my brakes were damn low and I knew it was time to replace them (as this has never been done in the 8 years or so of having the car...). I bought new pads/rotors, removed the others, installed the new - now...

    So I bought 4 new rotors, brake pads etc.. I can usually do this on my own but the screws are like stuck.. and my front right caliper is fubar'd and can't be removed, and the bleeding screw is fuk'd. Anyhow. I went to get some price checks. 1. I went to Midas, all I asked was how much it would...

    I recently bought [in June] a '90 s model with only 86k. My first Honda. I love this prelude. The previous owner had kept the car in superb working order, taking it into the local Honda dealer for all maintaince check-ups/tune-ups. I just approached 90kmiles and followed the previous owner's...

    Recently my car has been making a weird scratching kinda noise but it only happens when going around a corner. For instance today i was going round a traffic circle and heard it. It sounds like it comes from the rear drivers side. I mean really theres nothing back there. Is it a possibility...
