hi ...every body...
I have a question for ppl who usually go to bodyshop.
I bought brake pads and rotors already. Altough I really want to replace by myself, I am kinda afraid.
First of all, I figured out one of rotor's screws which is kinda strip out. I really worry I can't take off. So maybe the best way is go to bodyshop to replace. My question is how much about replacing brake pads and rotors. thank u...

Don't go to a body shop, go to a mechanic. Brakes on an integra (g3) shouldn't run you more than 1 - 1.5 hours labor. I would expect it to be less though.

Drill the screw out and replace it with a new one. Changing the brakes is fairly easy, just do it yourself.

best628, you can always try to get that screw off by yourself. And if it does get stripped and you can't do any more, then take it to the shop.

you don't even need to drill the screws out, go to sears and get the stripped screw remover. I forgot what it's called, but it's a big piece of metal that you can attach a phillips head to. WHat you do is you put it on the screw and you pound the shit out of it with a hammer until it comes off. VERY EASY, plus you get a nifty tool instead of going to a mechanic.

seekerz is referring to a Damaged Screw Remover which is what I would try next if the screw did strip.

usually brakes and rotors with labor runs around $140. You can probably get them down to $60-70 if you have the parts already.

Body shop = works on outside of car, remove dents and painting

mechanic = works on engine and suspension. Example: change oil, transmission and brakes.

Most places are mechanics and not body shops but there are some that combine the two.
