    Hi, please help. I have a 93 Honda Civic DX & needed to change the pads. This time I also changed the rotor for the first time (thanks ETCG for the double hammer technique to remove the rotor screws), rotors are same size as originals. I had some difficulty seating the new disc pads in the clips but finally got them in & flush to the rotor. However, even after completely compressing the caliper cylinder all the way down & I cant swing the caliper over the new pads. The pads seem to be too thick. They are Raybestos ATD273C, from Rockauto & no long on their website. I began to wonder if the pads were designed for 93 Civics LX or EX which have, I believe, a larger brake pad. I had to put the old pads back on while I resolve this issue & or order another set to take my kids to school. Thought the hard part was going to be the rotors…

    Can someone please help?. I’m completely frustrated. Thank you all!

    If the piston is fully compressed and the pads are flush to the rotor, Then try another brand of pad. could be defective.
