Hey fellas,



I've been browsing this place a while and I've begun to do a lot of stuff on my TL on my down through your DIY stuff. Thanks! I've come to the issue of a brake job with new rotors and such. I spoke to a buddy of my and even though he knows how to do certain maintenance on cars he said he would never touch rotors, he always lets someone who knows what they're doing for those. Is there anything special that I'm missing?



Thanks!

Acura Rotors have "set Screws" in them that you'll absolutely have to have a torque wrench or impact driver for.. I just used my DeWalt impact driver. no issue after that. Rotors are super simple and less complicated than the pads in all honesty

If they don't come out, I just drill them out and reinstall the rotors. The screws serve no purpose. They are used to hold the rotors on to the axles during vehicle assembly.
