what are these captive rotors, the bearing/hub is within the rotors?

I'm not everything about honda besides their profits took a massive nose dive after the early 90's. Now their cars are complex, boring appliances aimed at the toyota buying market rather than the people who actually enjoy driving market (which is now mazdas market).

oh absolutely. but every honda I've wrenched on was such a breeze.

here I am shopping for a $6 T6 torx bit for my subaru's trans drain plug... what does Honda do? make it 3/8" so you can just fit your rachet directly into it.

That's the "correct" way to do it. Had he not needed to replace the wheel bearing, you can just take out the the rotor bolts, and then split the inner race of the wheel bearing out. It's got a two part inner race, shaped a bit like a reverse mold of the center-hole of a donut. There's a split along a horizontal axis, to let you do just this.

A lot of Pick-ups are like this, as well as E-series Vans. You can still cut them on a normal lathe, you just need some ingenuity to not destroy the bearing in he process. OJs white bronco also used this setup, although you have to take apart the 4WD hub.




A momentary lapse in Hondas normally sounds judgement. Although their newer products are showing quality issues that simply wouldn't have existed, say, 15 years ago.
