1.

Remove the banjo bolt (A), and disconnect the brake hose (B) from the caliper body.


2.

Remove the flange bolts (C) while holding respective caliper pins (D) with a wrench.


3.

Remove the caliper body (E).


NOTE: Be careful when removing the caliper body or the spring could pop out of position.


4. Front Brake Pad (Natural Gas Model)

1.

Remove the pad return springs (A).


2.

Remove the pad shims (A) and the brake pads (B).


5. Front Brake Caliper Pin and Boot (Natural Gas Model)


1.

1. Front Brake Caliper Pin and Boot (Natural Gas Model)


1.

Apply a thin coat of Honda caliper grease (P/N 08C30-B0224M) to the caliper pins (A) and the new pin boots (B).


2.

Install the pin boots.


3.

Install the caliper pins.


NOTE:

Make sure that the caliper pins are installed correctly. The upper caliper pin and the lower caliper pin are different. If these caliper pins are installed in the wrong location, it will cause vibration, uneven or rapid brake pad wear, and possibly uneven tire wear.

Make sure that the pin boots are properly positioned into the grooves (C) of the caliper pin and the grooves (D) of the caliper body.

Remove air from the inside of the boots.


2. Front Brake Pad (Natural Gas Model)


1.

Apply a thin coat of M-77 assembly paste (P/N 08798-9010) to the pad side of the shims (A), the back of the brake pads (B), and the other areas indicated by the arrows.


NOTE: Wipe off the excess assembly paste from the pad shims and brake pads friction material.

4. Brake System - Bleeding (Natural Gas Model)

Do not spill brake fluid on the vehicle; it may damage the paint. If brake fluid does contact the paint, wash it off immediately with water.


NOTE:

Do not reuse the drained fluid. Use only new Honda DOT 3 Brake Fluid from an unopened container. Using a non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and shorten the life of the system.

Make sure no dirt or other foreign matter gets in the brake fluid.

The reservoir connected to the master cylinder must be at the MAX (upper) level mark at the start of the bleeding procedure and checked after bleeding each wheel. Add fluid as required.

There are three different methods used for bleeding brake systems. The method shown here is the preferred manual method for removing the air from the system. For pressure or vacuum bleeding, refer to tool manufacturer's instructions included with the tool.


1.

Make sure the brake fluid level in the reservoir tank (A) is at the MAX (upper) level line (B).

3.

Attach a length of clear drain tube (A) to the bleed screw (B).


4.

Submerge the other end of the drain tube into a clear plastic catch bottle of brake fluid (C).


5.

Have an assistant slowly pump the brake pedal several times then apply steady continuous pressure.


6.

Loosen the bleed screw slowly to bleed the fluid into the plastic catch bottle. The brake pedal will travel toward the floor as the fluid is bled from the system.


7.

When the brake pedal reaches the floor, have the assistant hold the pedal in that position, then tighten the bleed screw. The brake pedal can now be released.


8.

Check and refill the master cylinder reservoir tank to the MAX (upper) level line. Be sure to reinstall the master cylinder reservoir cap.


9.

Repeat steps 5 thru 8 until the brake fluid in the clear drain tube appears fresh and there are no air bubbles in the fluid.


10.

Repeat this procedure for each brake in the bleeding sequence.


5. Front Wheel
