    Replacing rotors, calipers and pads on my 97 Del Sol B16 Vtec. Rotors held on by screws? As soon as I applied pressure the screws buggered up. How do I get them out? While we're at it I'll take suggestions on best after market calipers, rotors, pads. Daily driver and plan to keep for extended period.

    Use the correct tool; an impact driver. It looks like a screwdriver that you hit with a hammer.

    Integra GSR calipers are a direct swap and you get much better pad choices.

    I usually use the impact driver!!! But in some cases I have had to use the torches to heat the screw up and the. Use the hammer and impact driver.I live in Vermont where there is lots of salt on the roads so I usually have to heat them up

    I usually never seize them up and try to put at least one of them back in because the caliper and pads go back together Alot easier

    Thanks for the info. I got an impact driver from a buddy and it worked perfect.

    Just swap the fronts. They're basically the same size as the Del Sol Vtec calipers but take a different style pad that is much more common. The rotors are the same between the two.

    94-01 integra.
