1800 caliper pin grease

Post by cfennell1832 »



So I checked the site for info on what type of caliper grease I should use for my 2007 GW and found not one article on this, am I the only one looking for info on this? My books conveniently leave this out?

No, you are not the only one. This is some very good caliper grease:


Just about any auto parts store will have caliper grease.

Thanks, does Honda recommend this brand and grade? And is it the correct grease for the caliper pins that the calipers slide on?

Honda recommends silicone grease for the o-ring at the end of the pad's pin, and for the slide pins under the boots.

Never lube the pin where the pads ride, it will only attract rode dirt and that can lead to interfere with brake operations.
