Much as I hate working on the daily driver— where's the fun in that?— the warped rotors on my much-traveled '92 Honda Civic got to shaking enough to detach my pineal gland. Next stop, Lee Auto Supply!

Every time I work on the ol' Civic (which isn't often), I'm struck by how much effort Honda put into making repair jobs relatively headache-free. You get the screws that hold the rotor against the hub, which makes it easier to get the caliper into place... and the caliper itself just pivots right out of the way. Easiest rotor replacement ever!

The best part? Just $19.95 apiece for brand-new rotors. That beats the junkyard price!

My IIRC doesn't work so well anymore, but I seem to remember a few Civics from this era coming with a HELLACIOUS to work on rotor setup. The sealed bearings were unitized to the hub/rotor assy. They were so time consuming for shops that they came out with the on-car lathes around that time.
