Hello, I can help you with this. Fortunately the rotors are simple to replace on your car.

Remove the calipers, then you will need to remove the 2 screws on each rotor.

This can be the hardest part. If you are in an area where rust is common they can be stuck First try a #3 screwdriver bit on a ratchet. Tap the bit onto the screw firmly to seat it and break the screw loose. Then attach the ratchet and try to break it loose.

If available an impact screwdriver is best to remove these screws.

Once they are off the rotors simply pull (or tap) off.

Clean the hubs well with a wire brush before sliding the new rotors on.

So that's it just take the calipers off then unscrew 2 screws, pop em off, and then pop the new one's on (cleaning the hub before so ofcourse)?

Thats it!!! Some of the older Accord require much more work, but the 1998 and newer ones are easy.
