R&R TWO SCREWS ON FRONT ROTORS

Honda Accord

2000 Honda Accord Ex-6 3.0L 4 dr sedan---

First time changing my front rotors and front brakes. Can I R& R the front two rotor screws on each front rotor without buying a " special tool"? I tried with a large Phillips screwdriver, but no luck. Suggestions? Thank you for your help.

Here is the deal. You can try a huge phillips bit and a wrench to crack them open. I would suggest a little " liquid wrench" sprayed on first and let soak in. Another that works real well is an impact screwdriver. Very cheap that you hit with a hammer to force the screw to turn.

If by chance you twist them off you can drill them out and retap OR as a last resort skip the screws and as is obvious the rim easily holds the rotor in place.
