I just rather not drive around comparing prices for tools now and for future projects.

roger that doing one job at a time. for getting bolts loose I like PB Blaster. put it on the night before and then again before you start.. spray it on the threads as much as possible.. it doesnt do alot of good to spray the head of a bolt.. long ones like brake bolts are prone to rusting and freezing up.. impact is the best way to get them out and least likelihood of breakage.

I also turn the steering wheel to make things more accessible when working on brakes.. the steering turns easy when the front end is in the air ..

Should I buy an impact tool?

I don't mind spending money on tools.
They way I look at it, if I pay a shop to do it, I would had spent as much or more, and gained 0 knowledge.

Too many to choose from. Lol.

This turning out to be quite an experience...

Was trying to remove the two screws that hold the rotor and I stripped it.

Make sure you are using a good, large phillips that properly fits. Mechanical impact would do the job here (pic). You could emulate tool by putting the screwdriver in the screw and rap the back of the handle, driving screwdriver deep into the screw and that may help.

$15 tool



Soak w/ PB Blaster may help, but doesn't look too rusted.

Bottom line- push hard into the screw as you turn.

Last ditch "fix" for the rotor retaining screws - drill 'em out until the head pops off. Then you can remove the rotor. I wouldn't bother replacing them as the bolted-on wheel will serve the same purpose. The screws are primarily for keeping things in place while being assembled at the factory. Some rotors were secured with one-way clips (which usually end up destroyed by the removal process.) You can replace the screws if you wish (or have some reason to).

Agreed. Time to tap out the head.

But if I drill out the head. Wouldn't the rest of the screw stay in the threaded part in there?
I don't understand it.

I bought these two items today, first one was unsuccessful.
Planning to make a cut on the head (probably will damage the rotor) and use a flat head w/ breaker bar.
Those things are cemented in there.

Now you grew a foot taller today !

When you buy new pads, some places will turn your rotors for free. O'Reilly is one. I suggest getting them turned (cleaned-up smooth) or buying a fresh set as your new brake pads will perform better and longer.

We don't cut corners on brakes.

Copy. I'll buy all new pads, rotor, studs, and lognuts.

Should I go to Orally and AutoZone for it?
I don't mind waiting if I can find cheaper online.

I removed the rotor, but I still can't replace the studs.
I think I need to remove further parts.
Any suggestions?

talk about doing your own tire rotations. lol

I was thinking about cutting into it (short cut), but I think the honda fit has even less space back there.
I'll figure something out.

Dealership

Seems like all the research points to one direction -> HONDA DEALERSHIP
Which mean $$$ just to replace one F****** BOLT.

I would hate to see you go to a dealership and get charged 1 hour labor for a 5 min job.

I know man, im so sad...
I'm trying to get into doing more stuff myself but it seems like my luck sucks. I'm pretty sure this is all a result of that crappy shop I was taking my cars to.
I was reading and usually the ABS sensor gets damage through this process as well, so there goes something else to fix.

Looking at your pictures trying to figure out a way to get the stud in after getting old stud out.
Arr...
Why do car companies make things so difficult?

I feel the same way; makes no sense to have to take the whole thing apart to just remove one bolt.

I been reading about the grinding and cutting part of the head to replace it, but on the Honda Fit there is even less space for this method to work.
