Just had to say I saw this post while searching for a guide to do my brakes and it helped me so much.
The first wheel took me about 4 hours because i couldnt get the hex screws out....i tried for 2 hours and finally realized i could just leave on the carrier and slip the old rotor off. rest of the time was double and triple checking my work.
I know its cheating and made the rest of the process diffrent but in the end it was all good.
second wheel......the screw on the rotor almost stripped trying to get out
then it finally came out and i was so happy.....untill i couldnt get the old rotor off.....it was like fused to the base.....hour of screwing with it and it finally came off lol.
all in all it was a very satisfying experience.
thank you again for this guide.
