playit00: I meant to torque the bolts on the brake caliper and bracket.
redrockrabbit: Wow! I have never seen anyone put two wrenches together before like that
and I've worked on cars for 30 years. I was impressed! I usually either tap
it with a hammer, or use a pipe extension. Like your idea! Thanks for the
playit00: Was just wondering if you need to torque the bolts or is hand tight good
Jose Rengifo: awesome video
dn151864: Can I use a regular car jack, the type that you find in a trunk? Or would
that be really unsafe? Thanks!
William Saenz: Thank you so much .... this video helped immensely. I didn't have a C

take(loose) off the whole bracket without dis-assembling the pads?
Products For Men: Hi Greg, will you guys be able to do a mod video for rear disc conversion
from drum brakes for 2001 to 2005 civics? that would be awesome.
Idris Ahmed: subscribed. thank you
RonGJX: Since Honda cars are the only ones that have those two screws in the rotor,
and other cars do not, why not just leave those troublesome screws out
permanently? Afterall, other cars do not have such screws and they do just
fine. My understanding is that they were put on at the factory to make
assembly of the brake system go smoother by having the rotor secured in
place. Would appreciate your insight and commentary.
1A Auto Parts: Thank you! Have a great day.

FitzKickz: GREAT video! What "drastic measures" are you referring to while you took
the screws out of the rotor? How would you remove them if a screwdriver
doesn't work? I would like to try this repair but I am afraid of stripping
the screws. PLEASE HELP!!
Jessica Hartshorn: Are there any brands of brakes you would stay away from?
1A Auto Parts: It will make it easier to install back over the rotors with the brake pads
installed on them.
1A Auto Parts: When it comes to brakes it is either the OEM ones or the aftermarket ones.
There really isn't any brand that is worse than the next. There are only a
few manufacturer of brake pads in the world so its a good chance you would
be buying the same ones. The only difference in most are what they are made
