Default 92 ex front rotor removal.

What tool do u use to remove the front rotors on a 92 accord ? Does anyone have a picture of the tool? I searched and couldnt find anything on that subject. Also does anyone know if the backs are pressed on also?

please look at the 97 Front rotor replacement in the Accord FAQ. 4th gen and 5th gen accord front brake are the same. But 1 thing I suggest you do is.... Get an impact wrench, PB blaster, and remove the front steering knuckle for removal of the hub.

you don't need to remove the knuckle.

Also, like The-Kid said, there is a write-up in the Accord FAQ. But...

-loosen the axle nut
-jack up the car and support with jack stands
-remove front wheels
-have someone press the brakes while you loosen the four bolts on the hub face
-remove the caliper and bracket
-remove cotter pin from lower ball joint
-loosen castle nut on lower ball joint
-with a hammer hit the side of the lower control arm to pop it free from the lower ball joint
-remove the axle nut
-remove the castle nut
-lift the knuckle to remove the lower ball joint from the lower control arm
-slide axle out of hub
-set lower ball joint back into lower control arm
-remove the four bolts on the back of the knuckle (holds bearing to knuckle)
-pull the hub/rotor/bearing away from the knuckle
-remove the four bolts on the front of the hub (hold the rotor to the hub)
-remove and replace rotor
-install in reverse order

now if the hub/rotor/bearing does not want to pull away from the knuckle you could try hitting the back of the rotor with a hammer to try and work it free. Or you could put longer bolts in the back of the knuckle to the bearing and hit those, some say this works as well. Try to not use a slide hammer cause chances are you'll pull the hub out of the bearing and that is not recommended. When I did this to my 95 EX my bearings were so rusted into the knuckles I had to have them pressed out. I then cleaned the hole where the bearing goes and greased it so that the next time it should come apart easier.

yep, no problem

if you buy from a local Honda dealer you are probably looking at about $70 but if you order from a place like Majestic Honda online you'll probably pay about $50.
