The two points do make contact with the backing of the pads and from my experience with Hondas they required grease/lube. So I guess if its not making noise/vibrations then we can skip it for gen 2 21 cx-5 GTR?However; according to this TSB, the procedure does say these areas need to apply some “white grease”. Although this TSB is for gen-2 CX-9, but CX-5 2.5T’s do have exactly the same front bakes.
