Well, I have installed new rear rotors and brake pads.
Everything works fine.

But the new brakes are getting hotter than de brakes in front.

Is this normal? Is this because they are new?

Or should I take it al apart again?

how do you know they are hot or hotter than they should be? brakes get hot the more you use them. I'd assume that they should be similar in temp. maybe the new brakes don't fully disengage when not used.

maybe you got different rear brake pads that run hotter? there are so many different variables, its going to be hard to diagnose on the internet.

The new brakes are the rear ones, the small ones.

I thought the Accord/TSX braked like 70% front and 30% rear or something?

So I would guess that the front brakes are getting hotter than de rear brakes?

are the front and rear brakes the same make and model of pad?

if not, then i'd assume they are made from different materials which would affect how much heat they produce.
