The easiest way is to take off the knuckle loosen the four wheel bearing bolts on the backside of the knuckle and leaving the socket on each bolt use an impact hammer to drive the bearing out then rotate the rotor 1/4 turn and it should pull off. . . you might have to clean up the rust on the bearing with a grinder so the rotor will come off... do NOT take the bearing apart you do not need to. many shops will do this but it is not needed and ruins the bearing as it is a sealed unit not designed to come apart. ( to take the knuckle out take off the caliper and undo the axle nut, top and bottom ball joint and the tie rod end)

When doing brakes on the front of a 1990-1997 or so honda accord put on new rotors,even if they look good because if you have them turned and trued up anywhere from about a week to a month or two you will have a vibration in the brake pedal and or steering wheel when you hit the brakes,the rotors aren't thick enough to even take a little off or they warp again right away.
The firing order on most inline 4's is 1-3-4-2. If number one is marked on the cap then all you have to do is take the cap off and have someone crank the engine with the starter to see which way the rotor turns.
If the cap is not marked remove number spark plug and hold your finger over the hole, while some one bumps the starter. When you feel compression (air blow out of the hole) stop, look at which terminal on the distributor cap the rotor is pointing to, that wire goes to number one. Number one is the one closest to the belt end of the engine. Good luck!
Hang on, because you're in for a ride on this one. This is one of the most difficult rotor replacements there is. You will have to buy new nuts for the cv shafts on the front, remove the old ones (usually require an impact wrench), unbolt the pad bracket, unbolt the hubs, unbolt the rotors from the hubs (careful, these bolts like to break off), and replace the rotor. When you're done with this, put it back together the same way you took it apart.
Unless your rotors are excessively thin, scored badly, or warped (your brake pedal will vibrate) you usually don't need to replace them. You can use sandpaper to scratch them up, and use them again. Good luck, and have fun!
need to take the tire off the use an impact wrench to pull of the big nut holding the cv axle on the vehicle then remove the rotor you will see the studs use a hammer to tap it out then tap in the new one.
Check your compression. If you don't have a compression checker, take the plugs out, shoot a squirt of oil in each cylinder, replace plugs and crank engine. If engine starts, you are probably looking at a bad set of rings.
