Default Removing '91 Accord Rotors ???? HELP!

I've done my 2001 and a friends 2001 with no problem. But according to the
manual, you must remove the control arm, pull the axle out on the '91. Is
this true? Might be time for a shop!

It's true. I have a '92 Accord with 215K on the odo, and the rotors
have never been off. Every year or so, I knock the corrosion off the
outer edge with a hammer. The rotors are fine. I have owned the car
since new. bob

the hub presses into the bearing and the rotor is trapped between. a
press is the right way. a lot of people beat them out but that just
creates flat spots on the bearings.

The 90's honda rotors can be removed w/o damaging the bearings
if you use 2 10mm bolts and beat on them. It is still quite a task. I
got an article from the web a few months ago when I worked on my
97. I have since helped a friend with his as well. I just tried to search
the web and could not find the article again, so I uploaded a copy of it
to my page.

see the link below.

I ended up having someone with the tools do this one. They at least used my
parts. Come to find out I had some bad wheel bearings. Expected at high
mileage. Not sure it the bearings or warped rotors were my problem, but
it's all good now. I'm a happy camper.
