Yes, you can do it at home. Take the two bolts out of the brake caliper that hold the pads on, and once they are out, the rotor should slide off.

How do you remove the rear Brake Rotor on a 1996 Honda Accord?

I'm having my front Rotors replaced currently and according to my mechanic the front rotors are pressed onto the hub and require special equipment to remove and install. I assume the rear rotors are similar. If true, I would have a qualified shop handle the work.AnswerMine ended up being fused so tight that a mechanic had to break them off. He said it was common with Honda. I have a 96 EX accord as well Answer:The front brake rotors are NOT pressed on, on a 1996 Accord. They are captive with the hub bearing assembly. Removal requires removal of the drive axle nut, and dis-assembly of the lower part of the suspension, and removal of the hub bearing from the steering knuckle.There is no hydraulic press required, no special tools other than normal tools to separate the ball joint and tie rod, etc.The rear rotors remove normally when the caliper is removed. Use a large screwdriver to twist the piston in (instead of compressing it) when installing new pads on the rear.

What steps do you take to replace the front brake rotors on a 2003 Honda Accord and is there anything unique that you should watch out for?

Removing the rotors is very easy. Remove the wheel, then the calipers. Remove the two Phillips head screws from the rotor. The factory rotors will have two threaded holes in which you insert the appropriate sized bolts (not the same holes that you just removed the Phillips head screws from) and turn the bolts in until the rotor pops off. I replaced the rotors and put in a new set of brake pads in about 30 minutes per wheel. There should be no surprises.
