DIY - Front Brakes & Rotors 2000 Honda CRV

This is a DIY for a 2000 Honda CRV Front Brakes with Slotted Rotors

To remove the calipers you need to unscrew the top and bottom bolt - Then you will see a tension spring that if you did not purchase the hardware kit you will be using these again - The reason it is called a tension spring cause this is what pushes your front pads back as the caliper opens - These are important to reinstall 

Then with a 17mm socket you remove the caliper bracket so that you can remove the front rotor 

On this vehicle you have two screws holding the rotors to the hub 

Make sure you have the lines facing forward or read the sticker driver side and passenger side face different ways 

Only on the bolts you need to apply anti seize 

This vehicle takes ceramic pads 

With the caliper tool push the calipers back then starting putting everything on the same way you took it off 

When putting the caliper back on you will have to squeeze the pads to the rotors because the spring tensioner will push the pads out until the caliper surrounds the pads - What I did was slip the bottom of the caliper first then leave a opening to put the spring tensioner for the top then slide the rest of the caliper 

There you have it

    Nice to see you that you have used alloy wheel spacers because recently I bought a wheel spacer like yours from They are providing best material with an affordable price.
