SOURCE: taking off front rotors

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)

SOURCE: Honda Accord Map Light bulb

the cover is removed straight down, slowly working it with a thin tool or butter knife. WD40 to front and rear edge (there's nothing medial or lateral). The cover has 2 Y clips on each side, one about half way, and one that clips straight off of the hinge post. There are no "tabs". It will eventually unclip straight down. Then can replace with a DE3175 LED bulb (V-LEDs.com)

Removal & Installation

d4d9fd4.gif
After removing the caliper body, unfasten the retaining bolts and remove the caliper mounting bracket, in order to remove the rotor

  1. Use a siphon or clean turkey baster to remove about half of the brake fluid from the master cylinder.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the caliper mounting bolts, then lift the caliper assembly away from the brake rotor.
  4. Use a suitable piece of wire to suspend the caliper assembly. This will prevent the weight of the caliper from being supported by the brake flex hose which will damage the hose.
  5. Once the caliper body and brake pads are removed, unfasten the caliper bracket mounting bolts, then remove the bracket from the rotor.
  6. Remove the rotor retaining screws.
  7. Remove the brake rotor by pulling it straight off the wheel mounting studs or if seized in place, remove the stubborn brake rotor by threading in two 8 x 1.25mm bolts, two turns at a time until the brake rotor is released.
To install:
  1. If necessary, completely retract the piston into the caliper using a large C-clamp or other suitable tool as provided in the front disc brake pad replacement procedures in this section.
  2. Install the brake rotor onto the wheel hub and tighten the mounting screws.
  3. Install the caliper mounting bracket and secure with the retaining bolts.
  4. Install the caliper and pad assembly over the brake rotor and mounting bracket and install the mounting bolts.
  5. Fill the master cylinder to the proper level with fresh brake fluid.
  6. Install the tire/wheel assembly and lower the vehicle.
  7. Pump the brake pedal until the brake pads are seated and a firm pedal is achieved before attempting to move the vehicle.
CAUTION Do not move the vehicle until a firm pedal is obtained.

  1. Road test the vehicle to check for proper brake operation.

Car shakes when braking at high speed


The front brake rotors need to be turned or replaced. If they've never been turned before, any dealer can easily fix this problem. On Honda Accords, they turn the rotors while they are sill torqued onto the hub.

Over time, the rotors heating up and cooling down leads to slight warps in the rotor. If it is warped rotors, the pedal will pulsate worse when you're going pretty fast and apply light pressure on the pedal.

A Honda dealer is the only place I would reccomend having this work done.

When pressing on my brakes going 15 mph, my brake pedle push back everytime the speed goes down to 10mph just before I come to a stop. Its like the ABS system is kicking and I hear a wineing noise...1992...


This is very common of Hondas if the front rotors have been turned(machined)off of the car or if an inferior quality rotor has been installed. Replace the front rotors and brake pads. This should cure your issue. Let me know if you need any instructions or diagrams.

Changed the front brakes on 1997 honda accord because rotors were warped. now after abut 15 minutes of driving rotors are extremely hot. could this be a bearing issue?


Did you cut the rotors or replace them? If you cut them, they are probably too thin. If you replaced them, check their thickness with a micrometer. Rotors will overheat from being too thin.

Steering wheel vibrates when brakes are applied. What is the cause?


The front brake rotors have become warped and will need to be replaced. Sometimes you can machine them, but I would suggest replacing them as they are not expensive. Do new front brake pads also, they will have become unevenly worn and it just makes sense since you or a mechanic is in there.
