The rotors on a Honda Accord and the disk brakes will commonly be located behind both front wheels and on some newer models on the rear wheels as well. The rotors will be secured to the axle of the Honda by four or five nuts that are connected to the lower control arm. The brake caliper will be mounted to the top of each rotor and the brake pads are located on the inside of the brake caliper.
