Trick to getting rear rotors off?

2005 Mazda 6i

Go to do the rear brakes, rotors and pads. I think they are the original rotors. I cannot get the damn retaining screws out. Any tricks or tips?

This. You can beat on em with a impact driver, but that only works 50% of the time. I've had to drill a few out as well.

on top of that, if it's hard to get the rotors off once the screws are gone, I've learned that leaving one lug nut on (so it doesn't fly off) and beating the crap out of it with a mallot in a couple spots always works.

'03 Lapis(mostly) 6i...Tranny swap by Gillis Motorsports : MTX-75 5speed tranny, 4.06 gears, Torsen LSD & chromoly axles, Engine build by Gillis Motorsports: 9:1 Supertech Pistons, Crower rods, Supertech valves, springs & retainers, ARP head & main studs, F2 Stage2 Turbo, Custom F2 engine/tranny mounts, 3" Turboback exhaust, Tein Basic Coilovers, Brembo Big Brake Kit and Rotora Rear Rotors, RacingBeat Front & Rear Sways, Seibon OEM hood, VF Engineering rear engine mount, Powdercoated Valvecover, TEIN hood dampers, Some sort of Body Kit from some company usually last dyno 8/23, 10psi...260HP/267TQ

Still need: Seat, cage, Gillis suspension...then i'm DONE!!

Flipper is a lucky guy. Living in NE, the screws on mine were stuck on there with pure evil.

Impact is always best. if it strips just drill them out. They were just put in to hold the rotors on while car was on the assembly line.

Oh man - 10PM at night, below 40 degrees and Marcus has been in my garage for 3 hours trying to trill out the iridium bit (with a non-iridium bit because I didn't have any more) that broke inside the screw that he was trying to drill out..... what a night.



F it, Drill em!

Some things you just never forget. A lot of hours were invested on that brake job. This car has literally taken my blood, sweat, and tears,
