Re: Attaching a new hubcap recently bought online
Line up the notch in the hubcap with the valve core, hold in on one side and tap the other side, repeat until the cap is seated. If the hubcap does not stay on, look for broken tabs at the backside of the hubcap where the circular wire is. If any of these tabs are broken, the cap will not stay on.

First thing to do is to locate the fuel filter, most likely down near the tank.
Second thing to do if it is a fuel injected engine is to open the bonnet and find the main fuse box. Remove the Fuel pump relay, or fuse. This will prevent the fuel pump from working. Now start your engine and run it until it stalls out. Shut off the engine, go to the fuel filter and remove the clamps or spring clips attaching it to the fuel line.
Now take the filter off and replace it with a new one, make sure you snug up all the connections. Now go back to the front and replace that relay or fuse. Turn the key until the and wait until all the dash lights have gone out or stopped flashing. Wind over the engine until it catches and runs. Put the hand brake on and with the vehicle in neutral if a manual or in park if auto.
Check the filter for leaks if leaking turn it off and tighten the clamps, try not to refit old clamps or spring clips always try to fit new ones and new fuel hose if possible. Make sure if you fit new fuel hose you fit Fuel injection hose, not standard fuel hose. As the standard fuel hose will split due to the pressure.
get a lift buy a new or rebuilt starter drive the car onto the lift disconnect the negative battery cable put the car up in the air disconnect the wiring from the starter, use your cell phone camera to take a picture before removing the wires take the top and bottom bolts out which hold the starter to the bell housing pull starter out and down put new starter in and put bolts back in look at cell phone picture and reconnect wiring the same way let car down and reconnect battery you are done
torque specs dont really work with wheel bearings,its better to do it by feel,front wheel bearings with ratchet nuts,----usually tighten good and snug by hand and tap on the rotor a few times to seat the bearings,then good and snug again,not really hard,and back off 1/8 to a 1/16th of a turn,then tighten with your hand until it stops freely..you just dont want them too tight to wear out the new bearings
Determine how the hubcaps are attached. Some simply push on, others have a small screw holding them on, and a few won't come off unless you take the lug nuts off.
Depending on what type of hubcap your car has, either unscrew the screw that holds the hubcap on, or with a large screwdriver or a pry bar, pry the hubcap off the wheel.
place a new hubcap on the wheel.
Strike the edge lightly with a rubber mallet and work around the rim of the hubcap with the mallet until it's seated, or screw the screw back in.
Repeat for each hubcap.

Your Accord has what is called "Trapped Rotors". They actually fit behind the hub. The procedure to remove them is not complicated, but it is time consuming. Here is how I do it: 1) Remove axle retaining nut. 2) Remove brake caliper and bracket. 3) Remove lower ball joint retaining nut and use pickle fork to loosen spindle from lower ball joint. 4) Remove axle from hub. 5) On the back of the spindle, remove four bolts that attach hub/bearing to spindle. 6) Use slide hammer to remove rotor/hub assembly. 7) Remove 4 bolts attaching rotor to hub. 8) While it is a snug fit, the hub bearing does slide through center of rotor to remove it. Installation is in reverse order.
A bad bearing usually makes a growling noise while driving.
