    Break adjustment(setting) required, each break should catch the disk at the same time, If one catches late then it will happen.

    When it come to breaks always go to Honda workshop and not to old time roadside mechs and buy break shoes also from Honda.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Are you using genuine honda brake pads? there's a huge difference between them and other fakes. Secondly have you gotten your rotors/discs checked?. maybe they need skimming/polishing. Best of luck

    @Ahmad

    attaching pics for your reference.

    Genuine brakes cost me around 3400 around a year back. Got complete brake service/adjustment from Honda. Furthermore they also skimmed the discs since i had slightly delayed the installation of new pads, besides the discs get an uneven surface in case they are hot and water is poured onto them...

    Best of luck

    my car isn't run that much, so the rear were fine and just required adjustment. Front included pad change and disc skimming

    People here are ANTI 3S dealerships, i would pay a premium to enjoy peace of mind and avoid multiple trips (time IS MONEY lol)..

    My suggestion for you would be to get your car checked out at Honda. If you dont trust your local dealerships, visit good/reputable one's in ISB (if that's what satisfies you). Enjoy!

    uneven wear to ur disc goto honda they'll run a computerised test on it and maybe change it but keep in mind tht it'll cost around 6k.my corolla disc was changed but was under warranty so didnt paid a penny.

    guys the problem is still there.

    i got my cars' wheels allign n balanced 2 days ago.the problem still there.then i went to an authourised 2s honda dealer.told him my case.he told me that most probably,the pin/cylinder of the right side calliper is jammed.we wud open it n clean it throughly nd the problem wud go.
    they opened it,changed the bush,cleaned it throughly wid anti-rust spray etc.then greased the pins n put it back on the wheels.the process took about 40mins.

    results:- no change AT ALL still,under hard braking,the left wheel jams.(though i feel much difference in normal braking,the car is slowing faster.)

    now guys tell me wat shud b wrong?im thinking the problem lies wid the left side wheel not the right one.wat exactly shud i do?

    the pads r just about 3-4 months old.

    if the brake line was leaking,they would have told u so.
    only thing left is to check the suspension(control arms)

    are your brake pads genuine or fake? have you gotten the rotors inspected?

    Suggestion to the Poster DO NOT MAKE SUGGESTIONS unless u know what u r talking about as it costs people time and money

    Pulling to one side while braking or one wheel jaming has nothing to do with balancing or alignment or tires (although it is obviously recomended to follow manufacturer specifications). Bif tires and after market wheels cause serious damage and wear and tear on all components of a car and stress the frame beyond design specifications

    Your problem is most likely related to Air in the Braking System. Bleed the Braking system and get it done ONLY through a Proper Honda Service Center ( not Pitstops).

    WHile at it, also check the Rotors for warping ( a result of uneven surface) ur honda technician should be able to tell.

    Being an owner of Honda city 2007, 40000km, the car braking is poor anyway and handling is also really poor. It is therefore recomended that u dont try stunts that some cars such as (suzuki margalla) perform effortlessly.

    Proper Honda Service Center means a Proper 3S SHOP. Go to the biggest Honda 3s dealer in ur city as he is likely to have the expertise, the technicians and the equipment to perform the job properly
