I started to take one off to inspect the rotor, calipers, pads etc really well but stripped the screw almost immediately. My screw extractor broke off in the screw so I ended up drilling it out enough to where PB Blaster got it loose enough where I could get the screw out. I was careful not to strip the internal threads but there isn't much screw left to measure. When I get home I may see if I can tell the size and see if it matches something aftermarket. If not I'll either do without or order them along with pads and/or rotors. Thanks- JerryC
