  • Debbie697834 May 28, 2008

    Yes, except I don`t have a 98 Honda!!

  • Debbie697834 May 28, 2008

    M reg is actually 1994 and the disks are held on by 4 bolts not screws but they won`t come off without the drive flange.

  • Debbie697834 May 29, 2008

    Yep, did that - won`t come off

Did you remove the two phillip head retaining screws that hold the rotor to the hub? Also, if there is alot of corrosion around the center of the hub, the rotor might be stuck in place. In that case, you'll have to tap the rotor with a hammer to break it free.

    Look at Number 25 in this picture. This is the parts diagram for a 98 Honda Accord. How can you say that Honda Accords do not have phillips screws holding the rotors???????"

  • Carlos Rojas May 28, 2008

    Reposted picture - incomplete in last post

  • Carlos Rojas May 28, 2008

    That is what the top of the post says. Well then, what year accord do you have?

  • Carlos Rojas May 28, 2008

    Your Accord has what is called "Trapped Rotors". They actually fit behind the hub. The procedure to remove them is not complicated, but it is time consuming.

    Here is how I do it:

    1) Remove axle retaining nut.

    2) Remove brake caliper and bracket.

    3) Remove lower ball joint retaining nut and use pickle fork to loosen spindle from lower ball joint.

    4) Remove axle from hub.

    5) On the back of the spindle, remove four bolts that attach hub/bearing to spindle.

    6) Use slide hammer to remove rotor/hub assembly.

    7) Remove 4 bolts attaching rotor to hub.

    8) While it is a snug fit, the hub bearing does slide through center of rotor to remove it.

    Installation is in reverse order.

My Honda accord Sedan car CD Player cannot eject CD .

Before connecting any cables you must set the dip switch box to the position listed for your vehicle. If you set the dip-switches after you have connected cables to the box, you must disconnect and reconnect them for the changer to operate. All 1992-2004 Honda's are compatible with the Neo Changer except the 2003 and 2004 Honda Accord and all Honda Element vehicles. Some radio models require pressing "Seek >" once to start playing after changing CD or after startup. The radios display will not show the proper disc number after disc six. You can use all 10 discs in the magazine, but the readout will be wrong. This is not a technical problem; the car stereo was designed for no more than six discs. *Due to the direct access disc system, you will not be able to directly access discs 7-10. To access these discs you will have to go to the last track on disc 6 and let it play until it loads disc #7. ( you can fast forward the track, but you must let it play the last 5 seconds of the track, for it to change to disc # 7 Switch to the Neo Changer by pressing the "CD" button. To change discs press "Disc -" and "Disc +" To change tracks simply press "Seek <" or "Seek >" S E T T I N G S F O R H O N D A 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ON OFF OFF ON OFF OFF ON OFF

I have replaced back disc s and pads and the drivers side callapar on my honda shuttle and they sound worse than before (still grinding ) did bleed ttem aswell

With modern day semi-metallic pads and new rotors(discs), you will have a mild grinding as the new pads and discs "marry" or resurface. This should go away though.

Are any special tools needed to change the brake pads and discs front and rear on a 2005 2.2i-ctdi Accord. ie pushing back the caliper pistons? Thanks, Martyn from England

The manual indicates that a C-clamp (of appropriate size) can be used to compress the piston back into the bore. The fluid in the brake master cylinder will, of course, rise when you do that, so you will have to make sure that the master cylinder tank doesn't overflow (might have to siphon off a little fluid).

Regarding the discs. Sometimes they are stuck to the hubs. If that is the case, you will have to use two 8mm bolts, threaded into the empty holes in the disc (after you remove the lug nuts OR retaining screws that attach the disc to the hub), and evenly tighten them until the disc is forced off the hub.

I assume that you know about disconnecting brake lines and dealing with caliper nuts and retaining clips and that sort of thing, but they require no special tools.

Hope this answers your question.
