Hey i bought new ones since the ones on my 93 ex coupe are junk they dont even hardly stop. I got the caliber(sp?) off and the pads off then when i get to thr rotor i cant get it off. I know there are the two screws that hold it on. I sprayed them with alot of pb and they still didnt come off. I then went and bought a impact screw driver from a parts store and tried to use that and i still couldnt get them. I dont know if im not using it right or if its just stuck. Its my first time ever using one, but not my 1st time changing brakes. Anyone have a tips or anything. i was reading and it seems like some people just break off those screws since they said they arent needed is this true? any help would be great thanks.

the biggest one you can find without hitting the sides of the rotor, maybe 7/16" or 1/2"

push harder/use a better drill.

take a cutting wheel grinder and cut a slash in it so a screw driver will fit it then take a torch to it until it gets really red hot. and twist
