Had a fun time installing this on my 2014 CRV. Wheels were squealing while driving. Determined the inside of the retainer clips was the root cause.

Installed the factory oem clips and the sounds vanished. The carquest folks should take a second review before another diy mechanic wastes a couple hours reviewing and re-installing their brake pads.

Good Pads but lots of brake dust!

By 

from New York

Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

The pads were easy to install and work very nice. Complaint though for the brake dust. I have to clean my rims once a week to keep up with all the brake dust these pads put off. If I leave them for over a week the rims turn black and dirty.

Does not fit 2014 Honda Civic

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

According to Advance Auto Parts system it says that these brake pads will fit a 2014 Honda Civic LX but they are 1/2 inch wider and 1/2 in inch taller than the ones on the car. I called Advance and they swear they will fit but not even close.

      • Q:

        I have purchased Wearever PXD914H front pads for my Honda Accord 2011 LX. I noticed that OEM pads had shims on them. Do I need to put on old OEM shims on these new pads or do the new pads have shims already built into them? Thank you.

          Hi Pete, you need not have to use the old shims as these brake pads are included with new shims.

        What is the difference between the wearever gold and the wearever platinum pads?
        Asked on 4/9/2014 by mike

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          That's a good question, Mike! The Wearever Platinum series are made with better materials for durability and stopping power and also made so you have less brake dust. The Wearever Gold series are even good but the platinum series are better. The main difference would be with the materials and durability.

          A:

          The 4 small pins in the Wearever Platinum Premium Ceramic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set) - Part No. PNAD914 are called locator pins on the brake pad. Their job is to keep the pad centered and prevent chatter and noise of the pads.

      • Q:

        I purchased a set of these pads for my wife's 05 CR-V. I noticed when I disassembled the CR-V that the shims on the OE pads and such were in poor condition. Do you have to reinstall the OE shim packs with this set of pads or are they designed to run without the shims? Please advise.
