How to Remove Rotors on a 1993 Honda Accord

4-Cylinder 2.2 Automatic

I am having trouble figuring out how to remove the rotors on this car. I took the 4 14mm bolts in the center of the rotor and i took the axle nut off as well. What else do i need to remove to get the rotor off? Is there any step by step guides?

Thanks!

There are four bolts behind the knuckle that bolt into the bearing that need to be removed. Also remove the caliper and caliper bracket.

In theory the whole hub/bearing should pull out along with the rotor. Then the rotor will be able to slide over the bearing.

The bearing can get stuck in the knuckle and that is where the fun begins.

You may be able to put the tire back on and pull the hub/bearing out by shaking and pulling on the tire for some leverage.

I will caution you that you might pull the hub out of the bearing. If that happens, then bearing will need to be replaced. That bearing is pressed onto the hub.

there are actually a few ways to do this.

you might want to search, i wrote a detailed and very comprehensive how to on this very topic with pics which includes the slide hammer method (may do some damage to your bearings since you have to separate them and repress them back) and the method where you remove the knuckle completely and unbolt the entire bearing from it, then unbolt the rotor from the bearing.

both are well documented in the accord forum. just search around a bit.
