SOURCE: resurfacing front rotors

If you just need resurfacing and it isn't warped, they can be resurfaced but "on the vehicle", that is the way Honda designed them on this year Accord. The dealer is not the only place that has the equipment to do this, though.

Removing the front rotors is not a trivial task on this model. However, if your CV joints are clicking or the boots cracked and you plan on keeping the car for another 100k miles then consider replacing:
Axle oil seals
Axles
Wheel bearings
Rotors
Calipers
Flexible brake line
Upper and Lower Ball Joints
Tie rod ends
The biggest labor is removing the rotor as it is sandwiched between the sealed bearing and the hub, and the hub is pressed into the bearing with a hydraulic press. The bolts for the bearing are blocked by the CV joint. You have to detach at least one ball joint and remove the axle nut to gain access to the bolts that hold the wheel bearing on to remove the rotors.

Don't skimp on the rotors as many aftermarket ones will warp and with the labor involved in replacing them, you don't want to do it again.

Is it ok to replaced rear Rotors with out replacing break pads?


OK if they are smooth and thick. It's not dangerous; it doesn't cause uneven braking, but I wouldn't advise putting very ridged pads back in - as they will tend to accelerate the wear on the disc/rotor. You CAN take the worst of the ridges out with a file, if you can use a file accurately and don't taper the pad... Don't use emery paper as some abrasive will remain in the pad and wear the disc/rotor. Also if the pads are very worn down, they will wear away quicker and could damage your new disc/rotor.

Minimum rotor thickness


I don't know the min thickness, but I have an outback just like yours and if there is a problem with uneven rotors it's usually cheaper and easier to buy aftermarket at NAPA auto or other supplier (shop around) and trash the old rotors. If the rotors can be turned then keep them for the next brake job and use them then. Outbacks are easy to do about 30 min a side rotor and pads after the wheel is off, just did mine.

Min thickness of front disc rotor


Perform this measurement in four areas of the rotor and make a note of each measurement taken. If the rotor is below 1.024 inches thick on the front or 0.413 inches on the rear, it must be replaced.

Minimum rotor thickness


ON most disc rotors the minimum thickness is cast into the body of the rotor and will read min thickness and a dimension. The dimension is also available in the workshop manuals and from the service department of your vehicle. Do not be surprised if you find that your dimensions are almost at do not machine limits as original rotors are not much thicker than the low limit.

I have a pug 406 2l hdi i have had a problem with the breaks


That sounds like a bad brake rotor or drum. If the brake rotor or drum is thick in one spot and normal on the rest that will cause the pedal to pulsate every time the the rotor or drum reaches that part of its rotation. The solution to this problem is to remove the front and rear rotors or drums and take them to a machine shop so they can be smoothed out, bear in mind you may need to replace them if the thick spot is too great.

* All brake rotors have a discard dimension cast into them. Replace any rotor that does not meet this Specification. After refinishing the rotor, replace any rotor that does not meet the minimum or discard thickness specifications.
