    I had the screw fall out of mine before. It sucked waiting for 2 horus for a fucking tow to spend 2 minutes at home to put it back in. When you replace your rotor use an allen head screw.
    The bearings are known to go bad after awhile. I don't know of a cheap replacement for them. If your distribtuor is making noise get it fixed asap, because my bearing seized on my leaving my car stuck an hour and a half from home.
