Default 1996 Acura TL brake rotor replacement

I need to replace the rotors on a 1996 Acura TL 2.5 . Anything special about
these? I've done rotors on other cars. I was just wondering if these were
much different than the norm. TIA.

I think you were wise to ask. I don't know about the '96 TL, but I have done
the fronts on my daughter's '93 Accord and was dismayed to find the axles
have to come out. I hope you don't have the same hurdle - somebody should
have the straight scoop soon.

Based on the picture of the rotors, I'm pretty sure the axles don't have to
come out. They have a fairly large hole in the center that leads me to believe
they just slip over the hub after the caliper is removed.

The deal with the Accord was that the discs were on the hub behind the
steering knuckle, so the hub had to come off, and that was easiest if the
axle was removed first. If you have a picture of the assembly available (or
if you pull the wheel off) it should be obvious one way or the other. I
can't think of anything else I've heard of on Hondas/Acuras that would make
it difficult.

ARGH!!!! You just described the setup the Acura TL. I wonder why they
decided to make this such a difficult task when so many other manufacturers
make it so easy? I can see no reason to do it this way. What should have been
a 1/2 hour per wheel is now probably going to take me an hour or more.

Mazda does the same thing with some models. Still doesn't make it any
better of a method. Dumb for sure.
