i have a 1992 honda accord with front disk brakes. the people above are right, but with mine, after removing all the nuts i found it very difficult to actually get the whole assembly out place. after an hour i only got the control arm out. and couldnt remove the upper and lower ball joint( i didnt use a puller though, so if thats cheaper to rent you might go with that route) with the way i will be telling you, no other nuts other than the ones on the rotor need to be removed.
i finally changed my rotor, it was a hassle but once i figured it out, its eaazy peezy. dont underestimate though.
With the car on the floor
- loosen the lug nuts
- remove the hubcap to access the spindle nut
- loosen the spindle nut
- the spindle nut is the 1 1/2 nut in the dead center of the whole thing
Raise the vehicle
- remove the wheel
- remove the entire brake assembly( i hope you know how to do this)
- remove the spindle nut, and the four nuts around the spindle nut.
- with a sleeve puller, bash out the rotor. literally, use a lot of force.
- the sleeve puller is a must, without the sleeve puller you would have to remove the surrounding ball joints( upper, lower, control arm) and then bash those joints out of place. it is much easier to rent a sleeve puller, and remove the whole rotor.
- to put the rotor back on, just work in reverse, but you will notice that placing the spindle nut back on is difficult. use a mallet to slightly hammer the rotor and hub back on until you can get the spindle nut back onto the bolt, you need just for the spindle nut to catch on the threads and then just tighten until on right.
- then just work in reverse.
