when i do brakes if theres a screw then i put it back but its only real purpose is to keep the rotor center when your putting the caliper back on. a lil screw cant keep a rotor on a car not possible. just throw it back together and lug it up nice.

Is it just the head that is stripped? If so, you can take a torx bit that fits tight into the hole, actually a tad bigger than the hole, and hammer it into the head. This should bite well enough to back it out normally.

All the screw is for is to hold the rotor flush to the hub, so you can get the wheel on easily, without the rotor tipping off the hub, and it also keeps the lug holes aligned-the hub centers the rotor.
