Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Okay, so I had to buy a new rotor and new brake pads for my SH, and it's been a crazy day and its on jacks with the wheel, and brake calibers off. I can't get my rotor off with just the screw driver for the 2 screws it wont budge. What do i need to do about this? I have work in the morning and its already 1am here. How would get this done the fastest? I have the large nut bolts in the back off aswell. HELP PLEASE ! THANK YOU:)

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Did you try WD40 on the screws and then take a hammer and lightly tap the rotor to loosen it up a little before applying any pressure to unscrew your screws?

WD40 and tapping will help unless the screws are stripped, then I would break out the drill at that point...

I used a impact wrench with a screwdriver tip. Was my last resort.

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Get a big tip screw drivers and try turning while tapping with a hammer? Maybe a high torque drill with a big phillips bit?

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

IF you have a torch that can work too. just heat up the screws and the area around them. This should expand the metal abit then tap at it and they should come out.

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Just take a drill bit to them big enough to take the head of the screws off. You dont need them. Their only put on on the assembly line to keep the rotors secure until they get wheels.

I used a small stubby philips head with vise grips attached. I just pushed down with my palm and turned at the same time

Impact gun with #4 phillips tip ftmfw! Otherwise Catch a flathead on the outside of the screw, hit it HARD to make a groove to sit it in, and then turn it sideways and tap to turn the screw out. Torch if that doesn't work. Drill as last resort.

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Use an impact screwdriver. They're $9.99 at AZ

and $6.99 @ Harbor Freight
http://www.harborfreight.com/impact-...ase-37530.html

If you have stripped the phillips head on the screw, then you will need an air hammer to get them out.

Re: Cars on jacks, need help with brakes!!

Drill it out and be done. if it's stuck then it's the easiest way. they serve no purpose now and would be pointless to put back in when you get it off and put new ones one.
