    I had posted in here before about the problem. When I go to put on my brakes the left front wheel will start rubbing on the top of the caliper. I had several replies from people but most of them have never seen a honda civic it seems as they kept giving wrong information like saying their are 2 mounting bolts on the caliper and also one person saying that I have anti-rattle shims or something like that which their is none for a 1990 honda civic. I will be giving this car to a friend and would like to resolve this issue before I give it to her.

    There ARE two mounting bolts on each caliper.

    There are two types of caliper used on that Civic: one has BOTH bolts
    head exposed; the other has only ONE bolt head exposed. But both types are
    held in place by two bolts!

    Depends on the type of caliper. The one-bolt-exposed kind has different
    shims and clips than the two-bolt-exposed caliper.

    This should be very easy to figure out, since it involves a trivially
    simple mechanical problem. I'm not sure you have the mechanical aptitude
    for this sort of thing.

    If you're that concerned about this problem, take the car to a garage and
    let the pro's do it.

    Did you see the reply from Jim Beam the first time you posted?

    Or the two replies from tegger the second time you posted?

    Will you see these replies the third time you post?

    go back and look at the replies from the last time you posted. if they
    don't make sense, you should NOT be working on this vehicle and you
    should it to a professional that knows what they're doing.

    Installing wheel spacers should do the trick.
