Just be careful with the rears as you need to turn to compress them (you'll see when you get there)

Re: new brake pads...help!

i'm about to do the rotors and calipers i'm worried about getting the screws that hold the rotor off.

people are talkinga bout impact hammers etc... I just have basic tools. So i dunno if i should go buy an impact hammer or what.

the tool shown on chicago prelude's i'm gonna pick up for the rear calipers.

Re: new brake pads...help!

You shouldn't need to, it all depends on how rusted or crappy they are, but generally it's not needed

Re: new brake pads...help!

the rotors can be fun depending on how rusted they are, an impact could help alot with a rusted screw, also impacts are good to have around for any suspesion and brake job because the botls are really cranked on

Re: new brake pads...help!

I would suggest buying a impact driver to get any of those tight screws and bolts. those screws on the rotor are a pain. Here is the one I bought.

all 4 per wheel? there should only be 2 per wheel. the other 2 holes are there to screw in an external bolt in order to seperate the rotor from the main hub (where the lug nuts screw on) after the 2 screws have been removed.

Even if they are rusted here is what i recommend:

Spray the 2 screws w/ WD-40. wait about 10 minutes and spray again. Wait about 10-15 more minutes.

Get a strong hammer or even a mallet will work. get a number 3 phillips head screw driver, put it on the screw. Hit the back of the screw driver with the hammer a few good times. this will help crack any rust loose that wasnt already loosened by the WD. Then use both hands to crack the screws loose.

it should come loose with out any powertools. I have done a ton of these and that always works well for me. I dont recommend and impact hammer/drill b/c the metal on the screws are too weak and wont last long. Hammering the screw driver will seat the driver in much better.
