Question about 2004 Mazda 6
What is the retaining screw on the front rotors and how do i get it off.
I have gone through this before. The mechanics had told me that these are put on the vehicle during the assembly line to hold them on as the car goes down the line. These are not required to operate safely. I had mine drilled off using a smaller drill bit that allows you to remove the head. Make sure you use a small enough bit as to not ruin the bracket they screw into. I did not have to replace them and I have had no problem with the brakes I put on almost 30,000 miles ago.

These screws hold the rotor on while installing brake calipers. They can be left off but not recommended, Soak the screws with penetrating oil for a hour or so and use a impact driver (#3) to remove stubborn screws.

An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).
