Honda CRV Brakes


#1

I put new pads on my car and it seems that the front pads create a residue after serval starts nd stops. This causes a grinding noise. After cleaning all is ok, then after a while the grinding noise comes back and goes away after cleaning. Do I have defective pads?


#2

Well the first thing I would ask is, did you properly seat the pads to the rotors after they were installed?

#3

what do you consider the proper way to seat the pads?


#4

After the new pads are installed, the vehicle is driven to a speed of 35-40 MPH. The brakes are then firmly applied to whoa the vehicle down. This is repeated a half dozen times leaving over a minute between braking events to allow the brakes to cool down.

Did you do that?
