    Default Brakes probelm civic exi

    Hi guys
    AOA
    I am facing some serious problem with the brakes mine is 05 civic exi. The stopping distance is huge if i press the brakes slightly however if i press little harder the car skids. I showed it to a mechanic he told me that the rear brakes are not working properly and as soon as i brake hard the front wheels stops and skids the car. There is no problem with brake pads or discs or oil etc. He told me that there is a pump kinda thingy which distributes the power and that is not working properly. Although i dont trust him
    Any suggestions i dont want to go to honda service center they are too damn expensive.
    Who else is very good and competent mechanic who specializes in brakes in pindi, isb please recommend
    Thanks for your tolerance

    Take your car to Honda dealership. They might charge more but they do know what they are doing and have proper equipment and genuine parts

    ^^exi never had ABS in it

    @farhan,
    i am suprised that ur mechanic is using common sense and most probably he is right !
    i once used inferior quality rear discs and faced the same problem. threw them out and bought genuine ones, problem got solved.
    did u check the rear discs thoroughly ? maybe they need replacement

    p.s replacing the distribution/propotion valve is a common practice in old share corolla as they skid alot on slight braking
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Why there is pressure reduction valve in rear wheel brake linings. Initially they look useless??

    Thank you all
    @CutePoison the only reason i am not taking it to honda center is that they instead of fixing the issues believe in replacing the whole system even if a part is out of order they replace whole.
    @hash4u the discs are fine and genuine and the brake pads are good too. yes the mechanic told me it is because of distribution/propotion valve.
    no exi dont have abs.
    I never press cluth pedal while braking infact i dont keep my foot resting on cluth pedal all the time.
    On hard braking the car not only skids but only the front wheel skids which can be observed by watching the tire marks on road only one pair of mark can be observed which is front no sign of rear braking.
    i am confused what to do any idea how much distribution/propotion valve cost?

    Yes they do. But that way you never face that problem again

    bro my 2005 EXi had the same problem, the car started skidded even under normal braking. the front tyres lock, and if you try to steer it only got worse...

    so i took it to my mechanic, he said the "front brake pad khatam hain, js ki wajah se front end lock ho jata hay" .

    at first i didnt believe him, worn-out pads should weaken the brakes, not jam them ON. but he insisted that i should atleast try ... and what do you know ... Problem Solved.

    and i should also point out ...
    in my case the problem is prominent because of my hard tyres. i mean "extra" hard tyres,
    and "more hardenss = less grip"
