I have a 1998 Honda accord with disk brakes. Can you tell me the steps required to replace my front rotors and if any special tools are required. I have replaced the brake pads many times so I think I can manage this also

Removal & Installation (Except 1997 Accord) 1. Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheels. Remove caliper assembly, and suspend it using wire. See FRONT BRAKE CALIPER. Attach dial indicator to caliper mount.39" (10.0 mm) from disc outer edge. Check disc runout before removal. See DISC BRAKE SPECIFICATIONS table. 2. Detach and remove two 6-mm disc retaining screws. Install two 8 x 1.25 x 12-mm bolts in existing holes. To prevent warpage, alternately turn bolts 2 turns at a time until disc can be removed from hub. 3. Clean disc of all rust, and inspect disc surfaces for cracks and grooves. Resurface or replace disc as necessary. To install, reverse removal procedure. Tighten retaining screws. Bleed hydraulic system (if necessary). See BLEEDING BRAKE SYSTEM. Page 1 of 1 3/15/2010 .

I dont, but take the tire off and you will see two philip screws on the hub part of the rotor. If they arent there, it means a brake job was done before, and they werent replaced.
