I need to find out how is it possible to remove the rotors off this car. After many tries I was unable to remove the 2 :swearin: screws that are holding it in place. What am I doing wrong? I broke one impact wrench on it already.

You have to drill them out. Pretty much the best, and only way.

That I knew, I was just hoping to reuse them just using some trad-lock paste to be able to move them the next time.

I used an impact driver with a #3 Philips bit. It was a bitch but they come off

Ditto with White MS6. Used that on a friend's '03 earlier this year. Took some work, but they came out alright in the end.

man up... wipe the sand out of your vagina and take out the screws

ha ha ha

j/k
i have a tool, it is like a big heavy screw driver but when you hit the end with a hammer it rotates the end. you are applying a tremendous amount of ressure on top of and turning the screw at the same time

Yup, that's the impact driver that White MS6 was talking about. That's the only tool to properly do the job.

Yea I couldn't stand the rust on the hubs of the rotors so I took them off and painted them black. I also painted the calipers red. The combo looks awesome!

thats what im going to do when i get back home... except im painting the calipers CAT yellow, and then send off the rims to get them powder coated black mica or somthing.
My uncle's got a car lift... so it should make the job easier. Better than doing it with a jack in the parking lot... :)

Has anyone found cross-drilled rotors for the MS6?

Idk how much you can squat but you could use a breaker bar and make sure you use your legs to lift it, thats what I did and it came out easy.
