    I thought I would inspect my front brakes having just replaced pads on
    another vehicle. The pads looked reasonable but the driver side inner
    pad was wearling unevenly. Upon inspection it looked the the wear
    indicator on the bottom(trailing edge going forward) was the culprit
    since it is clipped over where the pad slides. This was the first side
    I inpected. When I did the passenger side there was no problem with
    uneven wear and the wear indicator was on the top (leading edge in
    forward). I'm assuming the driver side really should have had the
    indicator on the top. I'm planning to put it there so it is the same as
    the passenger side.

    Anybody have any experience with this? All maintence has been done only
    by Honda dealers to this point and I only inspected because I borrowed
    a mecahnics jack and was curious how well the pads were. I lubricated
    and bled the brakes and all that stuff it was really just a thourgh
    inspection because it is raining for the nth consecutive weekend here.

    Comments welcome.

    OK A second look and I'm wrong both indicator are on the bottom
    trailing edge. So I don't know why the driver side is wearing (less
    wear on the clip side bottom) so I will leave them. Now that I look at
    the passenger side the clip seems free moving. Could the piston be
    pushing unevenly?
