Look between to of the lug studs and you should see a screw.Remove it and the rotor will slide right off.Stay away from the the center nut unless you are replacing the cv axle

Hi Shera,

Leave the the center nut alone. I'm assuming you already removed the calipers.
On the rotor itself you'll see flush phillip screws. These hold the rotor in place.

You need an impact screwdriver. This is a heavy duty screwdriver that is meant to be hit with a hammer. When it's hit, the bit twists and breaks the screw free without stripping it. Once loose, unscrew them and the rotor will slide right off

How to remove 1992 honda prelude front rotor


Hi Joe,
You have to remove the complete knuckle assembly from the car, on the back side where the axle goes trough the bearing, you will notice 4, 12 point bolts, you need to remove these bolts first then press the bearing out of the knuckle assembly. The job is quite a large job and would take a professional about 2 hours with the right tools. I'm not saying that to scare you, but to warn you. Let me know if that helps Joe.

Loosen 4 bolts holding rotor to the hub cannot loosen flange bolts


In order to change rotors on these you will need to remove the axle nut. Then remove the for bolts that hold the bearing to h knuckle onth back side of the knuckle. Then you can remove the rotor, bearing, hub assembly from the knuckle. Then remove the four bolts that hold the rotor to the hub and then you can finally remove the rotor. I will add that it is easier to do this with the knuckle removed from the vehice. You will need to tap the wheel bearing out of the knuckle and sometimes this will ruin the bearing so plan on replacing that at the same time.

I am working on a 93 prelude trying to pull front roters to replace broken lug nuts. but when try to losen 1 1/2 nut cannot get lose and donnot see any locking mechnizm to stop it from spinning off ....


I do not know for sure about the prelude but once you take the lug nuts off of most vehicles, the only thing holding the rotors on is the brake pads. Usually, you can remove a couple of bolts from the back of the calipers, maybe just one and the calipers swing on a hings away from the rotors. One swift kick to the rotor will usually free it up. Who needs a rubber mallet.

94 honda prelude distributor


yes there is a small bolt or screw holding the rotor on the distributor, but you have to turn the motor over either by hand or by turing the key for just a second at a time. there is a opening on the distributor that when the shaft is turned just at the right angle, will show the bolt/screw to remove the rotor. if you have any questions, email me at thadoggma420@hotmail.com
