I am in the process of repacking my front wheel bearings on my 1995 Honda
What prompted me to do this is, one, I am a new owner of this vehicle and am
not sure when this had been done before. The car has 104K miles on it.
When I jacked the car up off the ground, in an attempt to turn the wheel, it
wouldn't turn even a 1/4 of a turn with moderate pressure. This concerned
me. The 4WD is not engaged at this time. So I figured I would re-pack the
When I removed the caliper from the rotor, the wheel turns fine now.
Freewheels great. Rotor looks a little "off"; so those are off to be turned
or replaced altogether. Brake pads looked fine.
I am now wondering if the piston itself inside the caliper is just either
sticking or is no good.
What is the going cost of new reloaded calipers as opposed to having them
rebuilt. Which I will probably end up doing myself at this point. Just
wanted to know if someone had a better way of going about this in terms of
what the problem might be with the calipers obviously hitting against the
rotor too tightly.
