Hey Guys,

How do I pull the captured rotor on a the front disc system of a 92 accord LX??? DO Ihave to pull the whole CV shaft OR do I just need to remove the spindle nut ( center position 36 mm nut ) from the center of the rotor/bearing retaining plate?

Need a solid answer with no guesswork...I am low on time.

Thanks guys!!!

Go on google and search for honda car forums. Those forums can either have the answer for you already or you can ask it.

I replaced the rotors on my wife's 1997 Honda Civic, as well as dozens of other front wheel drive
cars with disc brakes.

I'm pretty sure that once you get the caliper off, there is nothing else holding the disc on.

If it doesn't simply slide off the lugs, it is probably rusted onto the hub.

There may be a hole on the surface of the rotor that the lugs go through.
If this hole is threaded, it is there so you can screw in a bolt to help push the disc away
from the hub. Keep in mind, if it is there, it is metric. Probably 8mm.

If there is no threaded hole, you will have to use brute force.

You can hose it down with WD-40, concentrating the spray at the lug holes to help
get the stuff between the disc and the hub.

You can also heat it up with a propane torch. Expansion from the heat will help loosen things up.
Don't go crazy with the heat. Hot enough to be painful to touch is probably enough.

Finally tap it off with a hammer.

Ideally, it should simply be loose enough to practically fall off when you take the caliper off.

But I've had some that had to be beaten off with a sledge hammer.

Good luck

EDITED to add: Some discs slid over a central ring that is a VERY tight fit.
If yours is like that, and it is rusty, that could be a source of sticking.
Being in AZ, I don't know that rust is a big problem for you.

Step 1: Remove caliper.
Step 2: Locate rubber mallet.
Step 3: Play whack-a-mole with your rotor.

If you get the caliper off, there may be a screw holding the disc. If there is a screw, you will need to unscrew it using a hand-held impact driver and hammer to break it free or else you will strip it.

A couple of taps with a ball peen hammer usually suffice.

Hopefully they changed it from the way it way in the early 80's when I worked at a Honda dealer. You had to use a big slide hammer to put the rotor/hub assy on and off warping the rotor in the process most of the time. We had a special device that turned the rotor with it on the car. Honda had lots of brake problems back then.
