You need to borrow a large puller or slidehammer,parts stores often rent these, remove the large nut in the center and attach the puller, a couple slides and it will pop off,re assemble in reverse order....no puller needed,the pressure of the large nutwill draw the components back into place.

Re: How to change brake rotors on '99 Accent?
Hit the sides of the rotor's center section (where the lug holes are) with a hammer - often, they'll seize from the heat of the braking system. Several firm taps on it all the way around usually loosens it. If not, hit it harder (seriously). Just don't hit the lug studs or you'll flatten the threads and have to replace them.

will try to help. 1st remove the wheel, then remove the 2 caliper bolts that hold the brake caliper on. after removal of brake caliper, [it should just pull off after the 2 bolts are removed] replace the brake pads[be sure to apply anti squeal lube to the outer side of the pads..not the pad itself,the one not contacting the brake rotor] install the pads, the you will need a C clamp to push the brake caliper pistons back into the caliper. i've used this installation easily. use the old pad ,place it against the caliper piston,then apply the C clamp and push the caliper piston back into the brake caliper, then the brake caliper will slide back over the new pads easily, no need to bleed the brakes if you use this solution. replace the brake caliper bolts, then go to next side and repeat the process. after the replacement of the front brake pads,pump the brakes with engine running!!! it's really a simple process. be sure the brake pads are facing the brake rotors with the [pads] facicing the rotors. no metal facing metal. easy! if you have added brake fluid recently, do not be alarmed if you see fluid coming out of the brake master cylinder,when you use the C clamp to collaspe the brake caliper back into the recessed position. [as always when you have to add brake fluid to the brake master cylinder,it only means your brakes are wearing naturally. if you have a vibration in front wheels or steering wheel when braking, you have a brake rotor or both front brake rotors that need replacement with your brakes also. hope this helps and as always, please get a second opinion if you have doubt. an expert will be happy to help. thank you for choosing fixya.com
Put the parking brake On and jack up the front of your SUV.
Remove the lug nuts and you will be able to remove the tire and rimm by sliding them off.Remove the spindle bolt located at the center of the rotor using an 36 mm socket(approx).
Remove the two nuts located behind the rotor (one at top and other at the bottom). This will enable you to remove the brake caliper.While removing it be careful that the caliper tube stays straight.
Slide under your passport and remove the 4 bolts behind the hub using an 12 mm(approx) wrench.Pull the hub assembly out and this will remove the hub rotor in some cases if you are using an tool for pulling the hub assembly out or you have to slide the rotor off the hub assembly.
Slide the new rotor into the hub assembly.Reinstall the brake caliper and make sure the caliper tube is not twisted. Replace the spindle bolt.
If equipped with an air bag, disconnect the negative battery cable and properly disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), as detailed in Section 6 of this manual.
Loosen the lug nuts, then Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
Remove the wheels.
Remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle. Please refer to Section 8 for procedures.
Remove the 4 bolts retaining the hub unit to the steering knuckle and remove the hub unit.
Fig. 4: Remove the 4 bolts retaining the hub unit to the steering knuckle and remove the hub unit/rotor assembly
Remove the 4 bolts, then separate the hub unit from the brake rotor.
Fig. 5: Remove the 4 bolts, then separate the hub unit from the brake rotor
Assemble the disc to the hub unit and tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).
When installing the hub to the knuckle, use new self-locking bolts and tighten them to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
Install the steering knuckle.
Lower the vehicle and check for proper brake operation.
If equipped, enable the SRS system and connect the negative battery cable.
1. Put your car on a level spot for safety and start your car Sienna. 2. For left front rotor, turn your steering wheel to the left all the way and stop the engine. DO NOT put emergency brake on! Put stopping blocks on the passenger front front, rear right and rwear left for safety. 3. Half loosen all front left tire nuts and jack up the left front then loosen all nuts and take the wheel off. 4. Use a 3" G-clamp from Lowes, Home Depot or any store near you, press against brake cylinder so that brake fluid flows back to its reservoir 4. Remove one bolt on the caliper and the other bolt loosen and lift the caliper with the other bolt on and rest on a block. Do not take the rubber hose off nor attend to loosen any brake fluid pipes and nuts. 5. Remove brake pads and remove the nuts on the rotor, done. If you need further assitance please let me know and if this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution accordingly. Thanks, Midwest-tek
Loosen both front wheel lug nuts and raise car and support on jack stands. Remove wheels and have a friend hold brake pedal down and remove axle nut. Use a chisel or screwdriver to remove stake on nut to axle edge. I use a 3/4 drive set socket and remove axle nut. Rent it from Autozone. Remove caliper assy and support with coat hanger or bungee cord to hold weight of assy off of brake hose. Remove Cotter pin and nut on lower control arm. Separate with ball joint fork and pull strut assy away to the side while pulling stub axle through and out of the way. Remove 4 bolts holding rotor and hub assy. on the inside of steering knuckle and separate. Now remove 4 bolts on hub's outer side and separate rotor and hub. You can use a bar or large screwdriver between wheel studs to loosen the 4 bolts.
1) Remove tires
2) Remove 2 bolts that hold on the caliper (+ brake pads).
3) Remove hub grease cap (should just pop off)
4) Once the cap is removed, you'll see a large nut on the shaft with a pin through it. Remove pin and nut... the rotor will come off along with front bearing.
? you want to change the rotor? the rotors are on the front of the car and they dont have "shoes" they have pads. and a little tap or some heat would get the bolts off. or soak bolts in WD-40 for 10 mins.
hi you will have to remove the wheel,grease cap from the hub remove the brake caliper and move aside (do not seporate rubber line). (discard caliper bolts can not be reused) remove rotor,wheel hub retainer nut (and discard nut can not be reused) in order to remove the hub
hub and new nut and tighten new nut to 189-254 ft.lbs
rotor new grease cap seal
brake caliper with 2 new bolts tighten to125-170 ft.lbs
wheel tighten to85-104 ft.lbs
pump the brake pedal befor moving car
