Question about 1991 Honda Accord

2 Answers

I'm trying to remove the front rotor from a 91 Honda Accord and I need to remove the four bolts that retain the hub unit to the steering knuckle. I cannot find explicit instructions on how to pull the cv axel out to be able to access those bolts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok not sure the set up without seeing it but if it a floating rotor remove the caliper and braket that the caliper bolts to there will be to phillips screws holding rotor on in the front of rotor remove those and take rotor off. If you have trouble with those screws let me know. If it is a pressed on rotor witch alot of hondas have you will need a slide hammer and a piece that attaches to the end that looks like a ducks foot with four holes or the other one that is not flat but raised you can borrow them tools from autozone. Remove axle nut in center and washer. You see witch attachment will fit over atleast two studs where the lug nuts go (over one stud on one side an the other across not right next to each other) then put lug nuts on to hold the attachment on get them pretty tight. then screw the slide hammer in the center of the attachement screw in a good distance. Know for the fun part you might want to grab a rag slide the piece that slides with wrag wrapped around slide it close to the rotor **** it hard till it hits the end becarefull not to pinch your finger or hand then just keep sliding it close to the rotor and slam it back to the outer end hard some come off easy some take some work just keep hammering away at it. stop every know and then to check lug nuts to make sure they stay tight, you should notice if it is coming out or not dont give up it will come. Also becarefull when it comes off it could hurt you besure to stand on the side. Note, you dont have to remove rotor to remove axle. To remove axle you must remove center axle nut. Then you have to disconnect tie rod end, remove the cotter pin take off bolt use a tie rod seperator slide it in between the tie rod and hole try not to mess up rubber boot hit the end with hammer untill it pops free, then there might be three bolts underneath take those out, if there not there then just disconnect bolts that hold the steering knuckle to the strut take them out pull down you should now have enough room to push xle through if it dont slide out of the hole easy use a punch and hammer put punch in to hole at end of axle hit with hammer, I suggest spraying with wd40 if that dont free it up, take the axle nut turn it around backwards scew on till flush with axle end hit with hammer (do not damage the end) once it comes out you should be able to get to the four bolts. if you just need the rotor off dont worry about axle removal when you put the rotor back on it should go on enough to thread axle nut and tighten pressing rotor back on, before you do check the bearings(balls there should not be one missing put some high temp grease in there. tighten axle nut till rotor is flush all the way in it is best to use a air gun or it will be difficult. hope this helps. I will check this post to see if you run into a problem.

Loosen 4 bolts holding rotor to the hub cannot loosen flange bolts


In order to change rotors on these you will need to remove the axle nut. Then remove the for bolts that hold the bearing to h knuckle onth back side of the knuckle. Then you can remove the rotor, bearing, hub assembly from the knuckle. Then remove the four bolts that hold the rotor to the hub and then you can finally remove the rotor. I will add that it is easier to do this with the knuckle removed from the vehice. You will need to tap the wheel bearing out of the knuckle and sometimes this will ruin the bearing so plan on replacing that at the same time.

Im trying to replace the rotors and im having a Hard time getting it off. HELP


You might want to spray some WD-40 around the center of the rotor and the wheel lugs. Usually on Honda's, the rotors will have 2 threaded holes to put in bolts. Screw in each bolt equally to help push the rotor away from the hub.

Front left rotor wont release. axle nut is removed hub will not slide


The following might help you. It is the rotor removal process for your car, most of which you have apparently done:
Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the wheel and install two lug nuts with 3mm washers under them to hold the disc in place (if the two disc retaining screws are still in place, this will be unnecessary)
Remove the brake caliper. It is not necessary to disconnect the brake hose. After removing the caliper bolts, suspend the caliper out of the way with a piece of wire. Remove the two caliper mounting bracket to steering knuckle bolts.
Remove the driveaxle hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, put a prybar between two of the wheel studs and against the ground, then loosen the nut.
Remove the cotter pin and loosen the lower ball joint nut about three full turns. Don’t remove it. Separate the lower control arm from the steering knuckle (you’ll need to get or rent a two-jaw puller for that).
Swing the knuckle/hub assembly out away from the car and push the driveaxle through the hub assembly until the end of the driveaxle is free of the hub. The shaft on the end of the driveaxle is often hard to dislodge from the hub, so you may have to tap the outer end of the shaft with a soft mallet until it pulls easily out of the hub.
After the hub and axle are separated, support the outer end of the driveaxle with a piece of wire to avoid unnecessary stain on the CV joint.
Remove the four bolts that hold thehub and brake disc assembly to the steering knuckle and remove the hub and disc.
Put a pry bar or something like one between two of the wheel studs to keep the whole thing from turning as you maybe put your feet against the bar, and then remove the four bolts that hold the disc to the hub assembly. Then you will have your disc. Installation is the reverse.
I hope this helps you. Give yourself plenty to time to deal with it.
