Brake disc removal

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by crysix, Aug 19, 2010.

  1. Um, just got a new front wheel from a friend, but i need to replace its brake disc with my one. However, the screws are really hard to take out. I used a electric power drill to unscrew it, but still couldnt ):. Are there any good suggestions??

  2. go buy cheap impact driver, less than $20.oo

    Failing that, if you have a suitable screwdriver with the metal right through the handle, hit firmly with hammer whilst holding turning pressure on s/driver.. sometimes works
  3. Heat. They are held in with a type of Locktite that requires heat to break it.

    A hair dryer will do in a pinch, but a heat gun would be better.
  4. i do have an impact driver, but it still doesnt work, but yea ill try with the heat, thankyou
  5. There is also a product called freeze and release. Made by loctite I think. Has worked wonders for me in the past..
  6. Heat, Bolt-Off(or WD40), impact driver, in that order.
  7. Allen key?

    if so then extend it with a ring spanner
