  1. 2G Problems, Fixes & TSB's
    In this thread, and others like it, ROC forums members — including me — have detailed the issues we've had with Gen 2 brakes: https://www.ridgelineownersclub.com/threads/do-you-agree-that-g2-brakes-arent-great.141730/#post-2129890 I won't go into the whole saga, but I'll summarize: Some Gen 2...
  2. 1G Problems & Issues
    While I'm going to be taking my RL in to the shop about this issue (about 90k miles on it), over the past month or so the car shudders a bit (not much noise) just feeling through the steering wheel an car. I'm wondering if anyone has seen this before or knows what might be going on. 2011...
  3. Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    First post! Just bought a 2019 Sport this past weekend, traded in my 2007 ridgeline after driving for 12 years. So after the first day I noticed something that seems not correct. When I am in a low speed, say 15 mph or less and usually in a parking lot situation I am hearing a whining noise...
  4. 1G Problems & Issues
    Aftermarket brake rotors may not fit Ridgeline (or any Honda) and may drag on the parking brake. Just wanted to potentially spare someone else the headache and additional costs that I had to deal with. I bought these Carquest Platinum Painted brake rotors from AdvanceAuto...
  5. First Generation Ridgeline (1G 2006-2014)
    What is this noise??? Please Listen. Hello, we just purchased a 2013 Sport AWD from CarMax yesterday. After the one hour drive home, we heard this noise during braking. Please click link for sound/video. We are taking it back to be checked on Monday. In the meantime, does anyone know what might...

    Man I have searched everywhere on this forum for insight into this super annoying problem I am having with my brakes. If I can get some help resolving this, I will seriously send you $20 tip through Paypal. Vehicle - 2007 RTL Initial Problem Master Cylinder started failing - would not hold...
  7. 1G Problems & Issues
    I don't really post here but I use this site all the time for the vast amount of info. While I have found some good info related to my issue, the way it came about has me stumped and I can't find any posts that address the issue my 2007 RTL has right now. I am in Virginia and we just had snow...
  8. 1G Problems & Issues
    Hi, I have on 08 Ridgeline and the other day the brakes started feeling spongy. The abs light flashed and so did the brake light, parking brake. It has 140k so I thought maybe it was time to replace the brake fluid. Bled the lines and installed new fluid. Felt better and was fine for a...
  9. 1G Problems & Issues
    I have a 2014 Ridgeline Sport. Love this thing. Bought it used with 20k miles. Vehicle now has 27K so here is the deal. After you drive the vehicle for a short bit (when rotors have been used a few times) I get almost like a squeaking noise when pressing the brake pedal coming from the right...
  10. 1G Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Does anyone have step by step instructions on replacing the emergency brake springs and shoes found inside the rear rotor?
  11. 1G Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I'm having a local repair shop replace my front brakes (pads & rotors) and I was wondering if there is any advantage of getting non-OEM (or Akebono)? I saw where the EBC Yellow pads were desired - but although I'm an aggressive driver in Northern Virginia (where its survival of the fittest on...
  12. 1G Problems & Issues
    I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or has suggestions. 2007 Ridgeline, ~87k miles. For some time now, when I'm coming to a higher speed stop, or slowing down significantly on the highway (we live on a mountain, so I have some excuse), the car stutters to a stop instead of...
  13. 1G Problems & Issues
    I have an '06 with almost 100,000 miles. I've only had it for 25,000, so I'm not quite sure of the maintenance done before then. Recently, when coming to a stop, there is a slow pulsation which rocks you back to front. I can also feel it in the pedal mostly when I'm pressing somewhat harder...
  14. 1G Problems & Issues
    Hello, I have a 2011 RTL and something very intense just happened. I was visiting my parents and parked in their driveway. Their driveway is at approximately a 35 deg. slope. I went inside and then a minute later heard my alarm system shooting little blasts of noise. I look outisde and the...
  15. 1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    This past weekend I did a complete brake job front and rear on my 2007 Ridge, 82K miles. I resurfaced the factory rotors, replaced the pads with Duralast Golds, and completely flushed the brake fluid (in the proper sequence). I drove it a little on Saturday and a little more on Sunday and...
  16. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Hello all, New here with a quick question, I purchased everything to add the 7 blade plug including an after market brake controller, not planning to use any of the OEM wiring. After searching this site and checking prices I think I will return them and purchase the OEM harness with the brake...
  17. 1G Problems & Issues
    Hey everyone - I have a question, whenever I start my 2011 RL, I notice that in the main display, the check brake system, and then check ABS system lights come up, but then immediately goes away. I do not know if that is normal once the truck first starts up. I have only had it for a couple of...
  18. 1G Problems & Issues
    I have a 2007 Ridgeline RT with 40,000 miles and the brakes and rotors need to be replaced. The brakes have been grinding for some time, so I'm fairly confident that the rotors need to be replaced. I'm looking for some advice on what brake pads and rotors to order. I've been looking on...
  19. Racks, Hitches & Towing
    Hi- I just completed a great 7000 mile trip towing my Aliner A frame camper (1800 pounds with electric brakes) from Maryland to Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico and back. Had a good experience, anyone interested in details, I have a trip report available. About 2/3 through the trip, I noticed...
  20. 1G Under The Hood / Performance
    I was wondering. How do you get the brake rotors off? Do you just unbolt the caliper-mounting bolts, remove the caliper, and they slide right off the studs, just like the convenient GM's, or do you have to unscrew two phillips screws near the rotor center to remove the rotors from the hubs...
