Just a couple more tips for the M8 forcing screws. 1) blow out or tap the M8 holes before using them. 2) Be sure to use anti-seize on the threads of the forcing screws. 3) Put some pre-load torque on the screws, Then go around the rotor beating on it. If you alternate between tightening the jacking screws and beating on the rotor no rust can defeat you. A little heat on the rotor bore never hurts either if you happen to have a "hot wrench" (oxy-acetylene torch).

Has anyone determined that M8 bolts will in FACT fit the threaded rotor holes?

I have a couple of bolts that I use, but I don't have access to them at the moment to check. Most Japanese cars use M8x1.25, but for some reason I want to say that the Yaris uses fine pitch (M8x1.0). Just buy yourself two of each to be safe.

Tried to replace the front rotors today, and ran into the same problem with rotors rusted to the hub. Neither one of the front rotors wanted to came off. I tied the BFH method, but no luck. I also suspect the threads of the jacking-bolt holes are rusted to the point where if I try to use jacking screws, they'll just strip right out...



For now i've changed out the pads, but the rotors are warped and I want to change them out as well.

Any other suggestions on what I can try?
