Re: How to change front discs and pads(with pics)
Most mechanics just use a self tapper and in some cases don't even bother replacing it. Essentially the disc is held in place by the wheel - it takes very little to hold the disk in place whilst changing the wheel. In fact some cars don't have such bolts at all - just a sinle restraining star washer pressed down over the wheel stud where appropriate.
