Just replaced my rear rotors. is there meant to be a bolt that holds the rotor in place or does the wheel once tightened hold the rotor in place, cheers. As the gregorys guide shows a bolt. Has anyone done theirs recently? Cheers

I think they are loose, held on by the wheel. The caliper holds it in place when you take the wheel off from what I remember.

pretty sure the bolt is used to seperate the rotor from the axel if it has rusted on or stuck
Ahhh yes, I know what is being talked about now, there is a threaded hole in about the same line as the wheel studs.... yes, I would say the same as what ITS A said, for pushing the dish off if stuck.

That is correct the threaded hole is for prying disc of when seized on using correct fitting/threaded bolt. The disc is held firmly against hub with the tourque of the wheel muts
