  1. Disconnect the caliper from the caliper bracket. Support the caliper out of the way with a length of wire. Do not allow the caliper to hang from the brake hose.
  2. Remove the caliper bracket.
Fig. 2: Remove the bolt and guide pin from the caliper bracket, then remove the bracket
  1. Remove the brake disc. If the brake disc is difficult to remove, install two 8mm bolts into the threaded holes and tighten them evenly and alternately to prevent cocking the rotor.

You need a hub puller.

I am in the process of replacing my axle halfshafts, and doing brakes while everything is torn apart. The rotors on 90-95 accords are a b!tch. The previous solution is for "EXCEPT 1990-95 ACCORD. instructions 1,2,3 are the same, but then u must remove the steering knuckle from the vehicle, this involves separating upper and lower ball joints, separate tie rod end, finally remove the knuckle assembly by pulling it off the halfshaft.(as u have already figured out on your own--good work!) Now remove 4 bolts hub unit to steering knuckle, remove 4 bolts holding hub unit to disc, and I love this part, 'SEPARATE THE HUB FROM THE BRAKE ROTOR. You are correct chomino, u need a press to separate them, although I beat the he!! out of mine and separtated them. You must be careful to use a pipe or socket the same size (or slightly smaller) as the bearing, and I supported the rotor on blocks of 2x4 on edge so the lug nut studs wouldn't be making contact w/ the floor as I beat the p!ss out of it. The manual also recommends replacing the bearings and races if dissasembled (more work, more need of a press, more money. I've done a lot of brake jobs, and this is the worst year(s) honda I have ever seen. I have a 91 Prelude that's a peice of cake.

How do u remove hubs on a 1992 Isuzu big horn

TO DO WHAT? not even the smallest hint on job or failure.>?
hubs, the rears have hubs to with disc brake option.rotor hubs.
I guess front hubs?.
guess 2, wheel bearing hubs, and not 4wd axle locking hub units.
doing what?
brakes, wheel bearings, axle damage. 4wd axle bearings what?
the pages are 2wd pages, and 4 wd pages, which is yours?
is this your first time DIY ever. ? or first time 4wd?
guess 3, 4wd, how am I guessing....

Acura SLX
Chevrolet Trooper
Isuzu Bighorn
Holden Jackaroo
Holden Monterey
Honda Horizon
HSV Jackaroo
Opel Monterey
Subaru Bighorn
Vauxhall Monterey
our usa book lists it as trooper only.
so ...

just B or B then A off? if you had b off, you'd see what?, a big nut.
that is locked to spindle shaft.
ill guess? wheel bearings are bad? (just in hub not spindle bearings bad... no matter this is first.)
so you do what. ? here are the steps.

that part"B" must be off first, see the bolts holding it, ?
B = auto locking hubs. or hub axle lockers.
26005769-b5pjo3cin0lhc1b54v4xlnuy-4-0.jpg you can see the caliber must come off, so, do so and tie them up.
  1. "Place the Transfer shift in the 2H position.
  2. Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely on jackstands. (rear tires chocked, and hand brake set hard)
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Loosen the hub to rotor retainer bolts.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts and carefully remove the caliper (along with the brake pads) from the rotor. Do not disconnect the brake line. Secure the caliper out of the way with the flexible line still connected.
  6. Remove the hub nut using hub wrench J-29020-A or equivalent. ( special tool)
  7. Remove the hub cap assembly retainer bolts. Remove the spindle nut, washers, and other components. Remove the hub/rotor, being careful not to drop the outer wheel bearings. As the hub/rotor is pulled forward, the outer wheel bearings will often fall forward.
  8. Once the hub/rotor is removed, remove the retainer bolts securing the rotor and hub together. Inspect the hub and replace if needed."
  9. end removal. install is next... ( covers this)

Need to replace front rotors on a 1992 accord. Does the axle nut have to be removed?

im trying to remember on those ones....i think they might have to but i think there are one or two phillips head screws right on the rotor that hold it to the hub that you need to unscrew and you will prolly have a hard time doing so. they sell a screwdriver specifically for that purpose in which u smack the end of the driver with a hammer and it turns the screw while putting alot of force on the screw.

Just bought the truck 4 wheel drive front brakes are worn out looks like hub and rotor are all one piece you pull the cap of where you make it free wheel and 4 wheel and then take a nut off inside to take...

No the bearings are not the "sealed bearing" type. they come out and can be repacked. You will need a new inner grease seal as well. Most of the time the outer gaskets are steel gaskets (If they have not previously been changed). I usually just put a THIN coating of silicone on them and reuse them. It depends on your particular hub and rotor assembly - some of the rotors will unbolt from the inside of the hub and can be replaced separately. According to the picture (below) the hub and rotor is serviced as an assembly, but don't take this to heart. AutoZone lists the rotor separately from the hub - CLICK HERE

Trying to take front rotor off. How do I do it

the front rotor bolts on the drive hubs with 4 bolts or screws depending on the setup. once you remove the brake caliper then you can remove the bolts that retain the caipier mounting bracket (normal two bolts on the back side 17 or 18 mm scoket) then you can remove the rotor bolts and the rotor. i hope this helps

How to replace the front rotors of a 1992 plymouth colt 1.5

I believe these rotors can be replaced by removing the hub retaining nut. You will need a big socket (about 36mm) and a long flex handle (or really big muscles..)

Is there a special tool to take off the rotor on the 1992 ford explorer 4x4

No special tool after removing the 4x4 hub the big nut in the middle has a flat metal pin that slides into a slot inside the nut you can remove it with a magnet then the nut will come off easy

To remove that hub you will destroy the bearing. Because you have to remove it with a slide hammer. It is not necessary to remove the hub to change the studs. Remove the caliper, caliper bridge and rotor. Using a hammer simply knock out the stud or studs you want to replace. Put new stud in and using a sleeve that has a bigger diameter than the stud (I use a big nut, like the one on the axle) put big nut over stud and screw lug nut on stud and tighten until head of stud is flush with hub. Re-install rotor, caliper bridge and caliper. Hope this helps.

93 honda accord rotors

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.
