The screw that goes through the brake rotor and into the wheel hub broke and i'm looking for a used one.. Anybody have one for me?

Thanks

Trying an easy-out would save some cash... Unless you've tried that already. That way you won't have to replace the bearings if they're still good.

You definitely don't need that little screw at all. It's just there to keep new rotors from moving before putting the wheel on. With the wheel on for a bit it will fuse on there anyway.

Those little fuckers break all the time.

alright thanks. I didn't see why that little screw was even there when there are 5 other much larger bolts holding the two together but i figured i'd play it safe.. but if you say i don't need it i'll just let it fly.

It's for the sole purpose of holding your rotor in place while the wheel is off. Not a necessity, but nice to have.

Yup, just drill it out.

Even if I get mine out, I don't put new ones in.

I just bought stainless ones.

I never put those in, if they freeze and you strip them out before it breaks it makes replacing rotors suck a lot.
