I believe these rotors are pressed on. Removing them would need a shop press or a hydraulic puller if this is the same as my 96 accord (should be). VERY Hard to get off in a DIY environment.

My 97 Acura 4cyl manual trans won't start because spark is not happening at right time.

If you have not removed the distributor, and you are sure you have good compression, it would have to be a broken distributor.
The distributor is driven off the cam.

1997 acura cl cant get the front rotors off

There is a phillips head lock screw in the rotor. Which gets very "stuck".
Once that is removed, they pop right off. You may need an impact driver with
a phillips (star) head like I needed. Got mine at AutoZone. Hope this helps.

How do i replace brake pads frony and rear on 1997 accura cl 3.0

This is not easy. Look at the Cl brake blog by P48. You can get the rear caliper piston in the fully retracted position with a home-made tool to twist it clockwise. It is like a large "X". Make sure it is retreating into the body of the caliper which will allow the "thick" new pads to sandwich onto your (new) rotor.

How do I replace front brake rotors on a 1997 acura 2.2cl. how do I remove front brake rotors. Are they pressed on or can I do this at home?

Good job, P48. I had to drill out the head (s) of the screws that didn't want to come out. The rotors will self-align with out the screws but it is disconcerting. One screw will keep the disc on the hub while you are getting the caliper/pads in place.
