Default How exactly do i change the front and rear rotors on a 94 acura vigor?

The only part I have trouble with is the hardware on both rotors past the caliper, I'm guessing I have to use a piston turning tool on the rear caliper to compress it as well but I'm just not sure. Please only respond if you have something to sayy! Thank youu!

I've always just unbolted the calipers and shimmied them off. You can relieve the brake pressure by doing this: Open the reservoir and gently tap the brake pedal a few times.
Also: You're trusting complete strangers with your life. Brakes aren't something to fuck around with. They are by far the most important thing on your car.

Does it have anti-lock brakes (ABS?) You'll need a pressure bleeder for this job if you do, assuming that it has ABS..

The rear calipers will require a special spreader tool that you can rent from AutoZone. You'll also need a vise clamp to pinch off the brake hoses. Open the bleeder valve, apply the clamp on the brake hose, then spread the pads. Then remove the caliper hardware to free the rotors. When you're done you'll have to pressure bleed the system, starting with the rears.

I have somethng to say. Get a repair manual. Brakes are not the place to start learning car repair.

Whatever you do.. "DO Not Clamp" the brake hoses shut with anything
as this will ruin the hose and break down the inner walls and now you
will have calipers that won't release and really burn your brakes up..
If the caliper has the E-brake function it will require a special tool to turn
the piston in...
