If it's the same as a '96 accord (which I bet it is), you need to remove the hub assembly and take it to a machine shop. The Bearings are large "press in" assemblies that Harry Homeowner can't handle.

Replacing ft brake rotors = a trip to the machine shop too.

Locate two 4x4 blocks of wood about 12 inches in length.Then find a good quality stove bolt for the middle of the berring.Use a brass punch to drive the berring wooden blocks each side of roter...


The 1994-1997 (and probably later) Accords have a hub bearing assembly which bolts in from behind the knuckle. (Machine shop not necessary). It is still a fairly involved job.

It requires removal of the steering knuckle from the vehicle, loosen the four bolts that hold in the hub bearing, drive the hub bearing out. The brake rotor is captive between the front flange of the hub bearing and the knuckle. A machine shop is not required to remove it, but it does involve separating ball joints, tie rod, etc, and sometimes heating the knuckle with a torch in order to drive the bearing assembly out after the bolts are removed, as it is often seized in place by rust.
