Some say, "Take it to a repair shop. They have to be pressed on." This is completely incorrect. There are two alternative methods for accessing the front rotors (or the outer hub - as in the case of broken wheel stud replacement).

The design in question is the "hub over rotor" or "trapped rotor" used on the front wheels of these older Hondas. The outer bearing/hub has to be pulled apart from the inner bearing in order to remove the rotor.

First, remove the axle nut. Use a breaker bar and a 36mm socket. Leave the car on the ground to loosen the nut initially, then jack the car to remove the nut.

Two ways to do to the hub or the hub+rotor:

1)USING A SLIDE HAMMER

Four bolts connect the outer hub to the rotor. To remove only the outer hub (that is, leaving the rotor on) - as in the case of replacing broken wheel studs...

-remove the four bolts that connect the hub to the rotor

-attach a slide hammer (loaners available at most auto part stores) to two of the wheel studs (lug bolts)

-give the hammer a few good strokes (I've gotten it off in one stroke)

-to replace the hub, use the hammer to seat it back in place

Of course, if you need to remove the rotor in addition to the hub, disconnect and move the brake caliper assembly out of the way. Support the loose caliper assembly with a wire hanger so as not to damage the brake hose. Once the hub is off, the rotor is free to remove.

2)USING TWO LONG 10MM X 1.25 BOLTS

There are 4 bolts that hold the hub to the rotor; remove two of these (the ones closest to the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions) and re-insert two 10mm x 1.25 three inch long or longer well-greased bolts; when these two new bolts (they should be available at Ace Hardware) contact the backing plate (which will be supported against these bolts by the inner hub), alternate tightening them until the outer hub (attached to the rotor) separates and can be pulled away from the car. Remove all 4 bolts (the two new long ones and the remaining two original ones) and the rotor will separate from the hub.
