Over the weekend I had the pleasure of getting my hands a little dirty and tackling a rear brake and rotor job on the Honda Crosstour. Very simple job…when everything goes smoothly. I was able to knock out the driver side in about 25 minutes, taking my time and taking pictures of the process. The passenger side is an entirely different story full of stripped bolt and screw heads. Thanks to Autozone for have new caliper bolts and guide pins in stock.
Doing the job myself, I was able to save a ton of money over stealership cost. Last I checked, they were charging a discounted price of $230 to do the front brakes and resurface the rotors. I ordered a new brake and rotor kit on Amazon for $100 from R1 Concepts. The new kit included both front and rear rotors and ceramic brakes. I only had to pick up some new brake fluid and grease for the calipers and rotors to keep the squealing away.
Now on to the pics:
All-in-all not a bad day. Next week…I’ll tackle the fronts.
