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.

There are typically two small screws that hold the rotor onto the hub. These are best removed with the use of a manual impact driver and hammer, available at your local auto parts store. They are usually either a phillips head or torx head screw, about 12-14mm long. If these screws are damaged, you can remove them by drilling into the center of them with a good drill bit, @ 3/16" diameter, until the head pops off. Be sure to oil the bit when drilling. These screws are not strictly necessary, and serve mainly to hold the rotors in place at the factory prior to the wheels being attached. Once the heads are off, and your remove the rotors, you can grind away any remnant of the screws from the hub face and they should give you no further concern. After removing the screws, soak the hub with penetrating oil and hit the face or back of the rotor with a hammer to loosen if it doesn't come off easily. As suggested by another poster, be sure to lube the caliper pins. Hi temp grease or antiseize will work well for this. It is also advisable to use antiseize on the hub face and on the lugs when reassembling, to avoid stuck parts in the future.

SOURCE: this 1997 honda accord.replaced beering

Usually means a warped rotor or an out-of-round drum -- although it can sometimes be caused by loose wheel bearings, a bent axle shaft or loose brake parts.The faces of a disc brake rotor must be parallel (within .0005 inch on most cars) and flat (no more than about .002 to .005 inches of runout) otherwise it will kick the brake pads in and out when the brakes are applied, producing a pulsation or vibration that can be felt in the brake pedal as the rotor alternately grabs and slips.

You can often see warpage in a brake rotor by simply looking at it. If the rotor has telltale glazed or discolored patches on its face, chances are it is warped. Measuring it with a dial indicator and checking it for flatness with a straight edge will confirm the diagnosis.

Resurfacing the rotor to restore the faces will usually eliminate the pulsation (unless the rotor is bent or is badly worn and has started to collapse in which case the rotor must be replaced).
Pedal pulsation caused by drum warpage isn't as common, but it can happen. A drum can sometimes be warped out-of-round by applying the parking brake when the brakes are hot. As the drum cools, the force of the shoes causes the drum to distort. ----------- This will help.thanks.Helpmech.

I just had the brakes repaired (replaced) and I have the front right brake locking up. Any suggestions?

Hello mike96860,

There are two typical reasons:

1. The caliper is bad.
2. The brake hose is bad.

To check for which one you need to lift and support the front of the car. With the key on engine off put the car into neutral. Remove the right front wheel. Have an assistant press and hold the brake pedal.
While you try to turn the rotor have your assistant release the brake if working properly the rotor should turn immediately.If not then follow the next step.

1. Have your assistant press and release the brake pedal then open the bleeder screw while trying to turn the rotor, if the rotor turns that indicates that the brake hose is bad, if not that means the caliper is bad.

Because you will be opening the bleeder you will want to bleed that caliper, no need to bleed the entire system.

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.

Removing front rotors

Most FWD rotors are "floating".
Just hit them on the hub area with a big *** hammer a few times.
They should pop loose.
Others are pressed on, they will require a slide hammer to remove.
Those can be a pain in the *** for the average joe!

What type of pads are you guys using? The number one complaint on cars is brake noise. One of the best solutions is to use quality ceramic pads. You may have cailpers sticking. If you have scorch marks on rotors or pulsation in pedal after resurfacing rotors, this is a good indication.
