I am in the process of redoing my brakes. one of the rear calipers was ceased and needed to be replaced. I figured that if I was going to do one side that I should do the other so now I have my car sitting on blocks in the garage.


But anyways I decided to replace the rotors and in the process of taking out the screws on the rotors I managed to strip the screw pattern (phillips head) but still got them out. What are some good replacement screws? Should I go down to Canadian Tire and just get some generic screws or do I have to order new ones from Acura?

Don't bother to replace it. It was only needed on the assembly line. This has been covered many many times.

Do you actually think those little screws hold the rotor on? BTW need time use an impact driver and you wont strip the screw.

I did think that the screws held the rotors on. This being my first car I am having a steep learning curve in terms of repairs. I can fix a mountain bike with my eyes closed and I was comparing the disk brakes on my car to the ones on my mountain bike. Slightly different approaches to holding them on.


I was also looking at the repair manual that I have and it said that the screws were needed.

Well I guess that I learned something new today. Thanks guys.
