Default 98 accord front rotor removal?

I'm looking to replace front rotors and pads.
Someone mentioned in another post about trouble removing the screws that
hold the rotor in place.
It this the setup on the 98 Accord Coupe V6???

I've never run across rotors that are screwed to the hub...( never owned a
Honda )

I'm on the fence about doing this job myself or paying to have it done...

Is rotor removal going to be a battle on this car???

TIA


Steve

no. it's two screws for the disk and two bolts for the caliper. can't
get much easier.

use an impact screwdriver, the prescribed tool from honda. You hit the end
of it with a hammer, and it presses into the head of the screw while turning
it out. Works great for lots of different applications. Got mine for $10 at
a surplus hardware store...

Some accords rotors are pressed on though. This I would take to the shop. I
have seen the shop use a special tool that machines the rotors while they are
still on the car, so they must think removal is a pain in the ass too...

Is there a way to tell if they are press fit?

Look at your diagrams at www.slhondaparts.com

You'll see if the two screws are there. If so, buy an impact driver and
have at her.

For example, if yours is an EX 4 dr, it is probably this:
http://tinyurl.com/ykngz2
That is what you want (the screws are part #28)

My daughter's '93 Accord LX 4 cylinder is shown in http://tinyurl.com/yaz42d
Notice the disc is flat and is *behind* the hub. Changing it is a big hairy
deal - I've done each side of hers once. The disc is held by the 12-point
bolts (part # 23).

BTW, if my memory hasn't faded too much the screw heads are #3 Phillips; a
#2 Phillips head will just strip them out. A test fit before taking a whack
will save you minor grief.

yeah, but these rotors don't "warp"*. honda was not entirely stupid
with this configuration, albeit a pita to service /if/ the disk needs to
be replaced.

* warping is a wheel/lug nut torque issue. if the disk is behind the
hub, the way the wheel sits can be messed up but it won't affect the way
the disk sits, unlike with the current system.
