Question about 2000 Honda Accord
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.

NO , THEY ARE STUCK, JUST SOAK THE HUB AREA WITH PENETRATING FLUID, LET SIT FOR TEN MINUTES, HIT ROTOR SHARPLY FROM REAR, THEN REPLACE BOTH ROTORS, THE PADS AND LUBE THE CALIPER PINS

Loosen the wheel nuts, jack-up the car and support on jackstands. Remove the brake calipers and
tie them up to the coil-spring, Take out the rotor.

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).
