2006 Honda Accord Rotor removal.

The front rotors on my Honda have 2 screws I believe are holding them on. I have done everything I know to loosen these screws. After reading the previous issue with Honda Accord rotors, I am now wondering if I actually need to remove these 2 screws. I believe that these screws are rusted. Can anyone give me some ideas or solutions on how to remove these rotors?? I have tried WD40. I have taken a torch to heat up and possibly break up the rust, if rusted. I have started to strip these screws which worries me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I've been working on Honda's like this for years, including my own, and there are two ways that you can get the screw out. The easiest/best way to do it is with an impact driver and the biggest phillips screwdriver bit you can find (sorry can't remember the number, I think #4 but not sure). Once you have the bit you are good to go and your impact wrench will do the work for you. If you don't have an impact wrench the other way I've learned to do it is by taking a small (12" section) of rebar and a mini sledge hammer and put the rebar directly on the screw (make sure it is straight) and hit it with the hammer. Make sure you hit the rebar and not the car or yourself. You are probably going to have to hit this really hard to break it loose (you can try penetrating oil, not WD-40, along with this method). After you beat the screws for a while, you are going to need the biggest phillps screwdrive you can find, again not sure what size, and you will be able to get this out. If you have started to strip the screws you need to be very careful and if you aren't sure you can get them out without stripping them I might take it to a mechanic and have them loosen them up for you. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

How do you remove the rotors from a 1991 honda accord?

Loosen both front wheel lug nuts and raise car and support on jack stands. Remove wheels and have a friend hold brake pedal down and remove axle nut. Use a chisel or screwdriver to remove stake on nut to axle edge. I use a 3/4 drive set socket and remove axle nut. Rent it from Autozone. Remove caliper assy and support with coat hanger or bungee cord to hold weight of assy off of brake hose. Remove Cotter pin and nut on lower control arm. Separate with ball joint fork and pull strut assy away to the side while pulling stub axle through and out of the way. Remove 4 bolts holding rotor and hub assy. on the inside of steering knuckle and separate. Now remove 4 bolts on hub's outer side and separate rotor and hub. You can use a bar or large screwdriver between wheel studs to loosen the 4 bolts.

How do you replace the front rotors on a 1996 honda accord?

Remove wheel. Take off outer driveshaft nut. Remove lower ball joint pinch bolt & separate ball joint from spindle. Pull rotor & spindle out & away to pull driveshaft outer splined end out of rotor center hub. Look on the back of the spindle for the 4 bolts that hold in the wheel bearing. Use a 12 point socket to remove the 4 bolts and remove wheel bearing from spindle (out towards the wheel stud side). Probably will have to use a air chisel to get it out. Once it's out undo the 4 bolts on the outer (wheel stud side) of the rotor and remove the rotor from the hub. Clean & lube the hole where the bearing was in the spindle & the inner face of the hub. MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAN otherwise you may get a pulsation on braking if theres a piece of rust or dirt between the rotor center & the hub face. Reverse procedure to install.

If the rear bolts don't come out then you will have to use a slide hammer to separate the bearing to replace the rotor and there is a very good chance you will need to replace the wheel bearing after you're done (noisy on road test).

Not the job to do at home, usually an easy 2-3 hours per side if things go bad (book time is 2.2 hrs per side). Use good quality rotors as you don't want to have to do it again because a cheap rotor gave you a pulsation.

Do the front brake rotors on a 2000 Accord need to be pressed off?

The front rotors don't need to be pressed off. Once your brake calipers are removed, the rotors will come off of the front hub. Some have a couple of countersunk screws that hold them in place, and they are between the wheel mounting studs. If your rotors won't come off easily, some tapping with a hammer on a block of wood on the back side of the rotor should help, as often they can get stuck around the wheel studs.

1990 Honda accord... thought it just needed a new battery so I jumped it and drove it to Les Schwab. On the way, the car died. Got it towed. Got a new battery but wouldn't start at all. The guys at L....


Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your accord. The distributor rotor is simple to remove, it has a screw behind the rotor blade, although this may not be visible to you because of the current position of the rotor. Try and start the the car; this will cause the rotor to spin and expose the screw you need to loosen to remove the rotor.

Removal of rotor of 05 honda accord

first you need to remove the wheel. if its the rear rotor, then its easy to do. all you need to do is remove the 2 bolts holding the brake caliper on, then remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket. after those are removed, the rotor should just slide right off. if your removing the front, then follow the previous steps, but also use a large socket to remove the big nut right in the center of the rotor.after that is done, it should slide off easily.

  1. Disconnect the caliper from the caliper bracket. Support the caliper out of the way with a length of wire. Do not allow the caliper to hang from the brake hose.
  2. Remove the caliper bracket.
0900c1528005fbe5.jpgFig. 2: Remove the bolt and guide pin from the caliper bracket, then remove the bracket
  1. Remove the brake disc. If the brake disc is difficult to remove, install two 8mm bolts into the threaded holes and tighten them evenly and alternately to prevent cocking the rotor.

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  2. If equipped, enable the SRS system and connect the negative battery cable.5f83e91.jpg810cd9d.jpg14f1553.jpgFig. 1: Remove the two 6mm screws securing the brake Fig. 2: Remove the bolt and guide pin from the caliper
