removing rotors

Alright im not exactly a fan of Hondas. But my sister has one and i always get stuck fixing it.Right now im doing front pads and rotors which sound easy enough.
Got the calipers off fine, and the axle nut. Slid out the cv shaft. Unbolted the four bolts in back of steering knucklle. This is where the chilton says the hub and rotor assembly will come off. But it seems like the bolts i took off made no difference. I tried plenty of bangin and persuasion but the rotor is still spinnig like normal.
Im lost for ideas any info at all would be great

This is a 93 Honda accord

Thanks

Are you from a rusty climate?

I have done many of the old Accords. If you have the correct 4 boltts out, try bolting the wheel back on and using it for leverage to wiggle the hub out of the knuckle. If that doesn't work, you'll need a slide hammer with hub attachment.

If it is rusted solid, the outer hub flange and half of the bearing might come off with the rotor. That's not a huge deal, because once you unbolt and replace the rotor, you can press the bearing back together during assembly.

If it still wont budge, worst case scenerio you have to take the whole knuckle off and use a press. If it comes to that, it's best to just get a knuckle from south of the Mason/Dixon, and buy a new bearing/hub, and new bolts for the new rotor.

If you are not dealing with major rust, the slide hammer should pop the whole hub right out of the knuckle easily.

Yea I live in massachusetts

Should the bearings and everything come out in one piece with the rotor and hub assembly. Or should the bearings be staying in the knuckle, and the rotor come off separate. It might not matter, but i just want to make sure im trying to take of the right part, and I dont want to damage anything.

Thanks

If it is the design I think it is, it "should" all come off together.

There are 4 bolts holding the assembly to the knuckle, accessible from the inboard side of the knuckle. Once the assembly is out, there are 4 more bolts holding the rotor to the hub.

This is the type where the hub flange is outboard of the rotor, rather than the rotor slipping over it. The new rotors will have a large, oddly shaped center hole, and 4 small bolt holes.
