Default 2013 Accords - Front brakes squeal or scrape

Honda has a technical service bulletin regarding this for the Accords.

Note: Technical service bulletins are not recalls, unless specifically noted as related to a recall; generally, they are to help Honda technicians with known issues. Issues noted in TSBs do not necessary apply to all vehicles. Normal warranty applies.

Honda TSB 12-081
Front Brakes Squeal or Scrape

While turning, a squealing or scraping noise is heard from the front brakes.

The disc brake pad retaining clip (retainer) shifted and is touching the rotor.

2013 Accord 2-Door L4 (Except LX)
From VIN 1HGCT1...DA000001 thru
2013 Accord 2-Door V6 (Except LX)
From VIN 1HGCT2...DA000001 thru
2013 Accord 4-Door L4 (Except LX)
From VIN 1HGCR2...DA000001 thru
2013 Accord 4-Door V6 (Except LX)
From VIN 1HGCR3...DA000001 thru

Center the retainer in the brake pad holder, and apply a thin coat of Molykote M77 to the edges of the brake pads where they contact the retainer.
