electricbeach Ya, I got talked to when I did a full rear brake job on my previous accord. Changed calipers, rotors and pads. The maintenance guy just said not to do it again for liability or whatever. I do stuff that does not require getting under the car, so not too bad really.

On another note, I put blue loctite on the rmm bolts today. They were still 100% tight after a few weeks and probably 1k miles. Either way, its on there now!

Juicedz Welcome to HOA's....only something satan himself could conjure up, lol. Luckily, no one has issued a complaint against me for working on cars. They get a little big eyed when you start carrying fluids across the parking lot. It's a hobby that I enjoy doing on my days off & most people don't understand gear heads like us. They're lucky I can't park my car in the living room to work on it because I probably would.

ThatFocusAgain Wow that's no good. You should be able to stuff like that

electricbeach Lol ya I always tighten bolts till the head breaks off, just to be sure.
I am going to check mine soon as well. Living in a condo community where getting under your car is a no-no makes life hard :(

electricbeach A new bolt is not necessary to use. As long as you put it on correctly and got it tight (around 80 ft/lbs) you will be fine.

Juicedz Just finished the install today and it definitely tightens everything up better. The underbody bolt with the red loctite was sort of a pita to remove. I may end up purchasing a new bolt for piece of mind.

electricbeach Ya, I'll check them soon just to be sure.

I did this a couple weeks ago, no loctite on mine going back in. I am nervous now lol.
If they're torqued you should be fine lol. I just added it for extra security.
