Hey Tiff,

Are you able to get replacement rotor screws ?
I stripped every one of them and have to extract them :s

So I'd need 8.

If you are talking about the flat head screws that fasten the OEM rotor to the hub, I believe these are only used during assembly of the car to hold the rotor in place before the caliper is installed. In other words, you can discard the screws if you are replacing the rotors yourself.

correct, the are not "needed", but can by nice to have at least one on each wheel. they are cheap, so if you want em, why not.

Ya, I heard they're not needed, but I figure they can't be more than a few bucks added to my other order, and it can't hurt to put them in.

2006 6i 5door
It's a Canadian VIN.

I'd also be ordering the spin on conversion kit, and in cabin air filter.

I think he means the 2 screws that holds the disc before you put the tire on. those are some verry cheep screws, When I changed my rotors I never put them back in cuz I stripped them all too he he. so I just drilled them out

I dont have an impact gun... Anyone able to tell me the best way to remove my rotor on a 2006 mazda 6? I need to take the 1 - 1/4" nut off and those small phillips screws correct?

Is the impact gun necessary or is there a trick to it?
