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
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.
