Need help with my brake rotor removal...

Whats the easiest way to get the two hex bolt rotor locking screws off. The ones that just hold the rotor on. Do they spin clockwise or counter clockwise?

They unscrew counterclockwise and screw in clockwise. There is not much to it -- just get the right size hex key or ratchet and push -- hard. If it has seized, it may help to spray some WD-40 and let it sit for a little while before you try to get it off.

Also.......an impact driver will do the trick, if all else fails.....you can rent one from Advanced Auto Parts or Autozone for free!
