The Honda Civic is a highly maneuverable compact that has been designed for the rigors of urban driving. Because they’re frequently exposed to stop-and-go traffic, compacts tend to wear through their brakes quite quickly. At All Discount Parts, we carry Honda Civic replacement brakes for every trim made in the past 30 years, as well as the Honda brakes for all other models. We only stock high-quality OEM parts and can ship them to your door within days. If you’re not sure whether you need new brakes or which brake parts to replace, continue reading, and we’ll tell you everything you need to know.
The Main Components of Your Honda Civic Brakes
Your Honda Civic brake system is the most important safety system on your vehicle. Keeping it in good working order could mean the difference between life and death for you and your passengers.
Your Civic brakes are composed of three main parts:
- Brake Calipers – The Calipers are pistons that grip and move your brake pads into the rotors to create friction. Calipers should be checked regularly for signs of fluid leakage and replaced every 30,000 – 50,000 miles.
- Brake Pads – The brake pads are mounted onto the calipers, which press them into the rotor, creating the friction that will bring the vehicle to a halt. Their life expectancy can vary greatly due to several factors, and they should be checked regularly.
- Rotors – The rotors are discs mounted to the vehicle’s wheel. When the brake pads are pressed against the rotors, the friction slows the wheels. Rotors can last anywhere from 20,000 – 70,000 miles.
Signs of Brake Failure to Look For
Brakes are one of the most active components in your vehicle’s system, and thus they see a lot of wear. Here are a few signs of brake failure that you should look out for:
- Squealing – Your brake pads are embedded with metal pins. When your pads wear down far enough, those pins will be exposed to the rotor and make a squealing sound.
- Pulling – If your brake pads wear unevenly, then when you brake, your car will drift to one side.
- Pulsing or Hopping – Damage to the rotor will cause the car to hop, or the brake pedal to pulse when pressure is applied.
- Poor Performance – The simplest test – if you apply the brake and the vehicle fails to stop quickly, it’s time for a change.
If your brakes show any of these tell-tale signs, it’s time to order your OEM Honda Civic replacement brakes from All Discount Parts.
