rear disc rotor removal

Got a 1990 Acura with rear disc brakes. The rotor has two screws holding it in place. Have not been able to get those screws out Have sprayed tons of chemicals on it with no luck. Have a small hand-held torch [tired forgot the name] and tried to heat it a bit, but quit as I didn't want to overdue anything. Tried to use an old screw driver, then hit end with hammer ..no luck. Tried to put a vice grip on the screw driver and push in as hard as I could and turn it...no luck.

Hope to get back to this in a day or so ...any help will be appreciated.

Sounds like you'll need an inpact driver. Like this:

Tow Guy ...... I love you man!!

I had already purchased a no-name hand impact driver and forgot all about it, never used it before. I had to buy a lot of tools and store in basement because of the insurance co. Having your garage burn down and being disabled is not fun.

It worked fantastic. Thanks again! Beer 4U2

Oddly enough, with all the stuff I do and as long as I've been doing them, I don't own a manual one. Comes from decades in the aircraft maintenance field where they are verboten, I guess.
