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.

the front rotor bolts on the drive hubs with 4 bolts or screws depending on the setup. once you remove the brake caliper then you can remove the bolts that retain the caipier mounting bracket (normal two bolts on the back side 17 or 18 mm scoket) then you can remove the rotor bolts and the rotor. i hope this helps

Can't get the rear driver's side brake rotor off the hub. Took off caliper, shoes, no problem. Two retaining screws on front of rotor, off with a bit of effort, but now off. Emergency brake is released....


Try taking a large steel hammer and striking flat of rotor in between the lug bolts go around 3 or 4 times while use the other hand to apply outward off pressure it should pop off. By the way trow the rubber hammer away

How to take back rotors off a 1994 honda civic.


PATH: Brakes > Front Disc Brakes > Brake Disc (Rotor) > Removal & Installation Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands. Remove the front wheels.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly; do not let the caliper assembly hang by the brake hose, instead support it with a piece of wire looped around the front spring or control arm.
  3. Remove the retaining screw from the brake rotor and remove the rotor from the hub.

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).

  1. To install the disc, replace the disc on the hub, screw in the retaining screw and replace the caliper assembly.

PATH: Brakes > Rear Disc Brakes > Brake Disc (Rotor) > Removal & Installation Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Disconnect the caliper from the caliper bracket. Support the caliper out of the way with a length of wire. Do not allow the caliper to hang from the brake hose.
  4. Remove the caliper bracket.
  5. Remove the two 6mm screws and the brake disc. If the brake disc is difficult to remove, install two 8mm bolts into the threaded holes and tighten them evenly to prevent cocking the rotor.
  6. Install the rotor in position. Install the two 6mm retaining screws.
  7. Install the brake caliper. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

03 Kia Rio- can not get retaining screws off rotor...screws now stripped


hi from uk the retain screws are for holding the rotor/disc in position so when wheel bolts are removed they can be easily refitted as rotor will not move off line the screws play no part in brakes and the wheel bolts or nuts are what secure the wheels and rotors in place SO if screw head has stripped ? you can use a drill with bit size of head of screw and drill the head off screw then remove rotor you can then try vice grips to remove screw but if not possible you can fit rotor and reassemble brakes hope this helps

1998 honda civic front rotor replacement


Varvah, front rotor: Jack up the car, put on safety stands, remove wheel, remove caliper mounting bolts (2), hang caliper in place w/ bungy cord, rope, etc. so you don't stress the brake line, remove caliper mounting bracket bolts, remove bracket from rotor, remove retaining screws on the front of the rotor, remove rotor. If it's stuck, get 2 - 8x 1.25 mm screws (longer version of what u removed), tighten them in the rotor, they will push it off easily. Reverse to install, tighten bracket to 80 ft lbs, caliper to 20 ft lbs. Let me know if u need more info. Countrycurt0
