    Hi,
    Can anyone please help!
    I have a 2006 CR-V II 2.2 CTDi & am looking for a replacement brake master cylinder. The parts diagram on the Honda website shows 2 part numbers for my VIN so spoke to 3 different Honda parts departments for clarification. All agree on part number 46100-SKN-E21 but advise the the part is no longer available. It also appears to be unavailable from pattern part suppliers. One of the Honda dealers said my only option would be to source a used one from a breaker - not an option I would like to exercise but have looked internationally anyway but no success
    Seems crazy, no replacement parts for a 13 year old car. I expected better of Honda!
    I'm sure someone else would have had the same problem, can anyone help?
    Thanks,
    neesbro

    Do Honda offer a repair kit to service your own master cylinder

    Thanks for your response, am currently looking at sourcing the individual repair parts. Also found a complete unit from Germany priced at 507 euros. Won't be going that route!

    Is the same part used on other models with the 2.2 CDTi (or other engines). It's very common for the same parts to be used across multiple models/ranges.

    I don't really see a problem with getting a used one from a breaker, and replacing the seals.. even cleaning it up and giving it a lick of rust prevention paint.

    This company seems to have a spurious one {HANGZHOU JIEPEI AUTOMOBILE PARTS CO.,LTD} no idea about them but might be worth an email, you could look into rebuilding as well the pistons and seals seem to be available from a quick search.

    Many thanks for all the suggestions. My local garage checked the system out & couldn't see any leaks etc, System was then flushed & refilled with fresh brake fluid. All seems fine now so hopefully problem resolved

    What was the initial diagnosis, I mean, to go from needing an expensive fix to a basic flush seems strange??

    Yes it is odd!
    Initial problem was sudden extra pre-travel on the pedal but brakes still worked albeit lower down the pedal. Initial diagnosis was possible faulty master cylinder or ABS module but problem had gone by that time. I used car with caution for a couple of weeks & apart from some sponginess brakes worked fine. Now filled with fresh fluid, brakes are excellent!
    Don't you just hate intermittent faults!

    If fluid has fixed it then the fluid was contaminated... either with water or air... both of which are far more compressible than brake fluid. Flushing out the contamination has restored the brakes to normal operation.

    You should check all fluid levels every month, oil and water every week the rest monthly. The brake fluid should have a slightly golden look to it, if it darkens or goes greenish. it's contaminated of really old... and needs to be replaced.
