Customer Question
Honda CRV 2003....

Honda CRV 2003. I hear grinding sounds when I brake, slow down and when I start moving again. like steeel rubbing in front.

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Started 2 days ago. Worse after driving 20 miles vs 2 miles. Sound perhaps from front wheels

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I always go to Honda service.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I want to know what the problem is before I take it in for service and ripped off.

Hello I will help,

I would start with a brake inspection, it sounds like the pads are worn down to the metal and you may need to replace both those and the brake rotors.

How long since the brakes were changed or inspected?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
