    Replacing rotor bolts question

    I am going to be changing my rotor bolts from oem to black titanium ones, purely for cosmetic reasons and because I have nothing else to do during winter  :082:

    My question is, can I undo and change one bolt at a time without risking the rotor to warp or bend in any way?

    I cannot see why not, however if that's a concern why not remove 3 (opposite each other) put 3 in but not tight, remove the other 3 and then do all up with the torque wrench.

    I replaced mine 1 at a time (assuming youíre talking about brake discs right?

    Just in case you donít know, but please take your time to heat up the bolts to break the thread lock and use a thread tap to clean the threads in the hole.

    Itís way too easy to clog up your new titanium threads with old gunk left behind and strip the soft alloy wheel threads. Speaking from experience in a past life.
    The government cannot give anything to a person it has not first taken from someone else.

    Yeah I was talking about brake disc. Thanks for the advice, I will heat and remove one bolt at a time and clean the threads. Rather than red will use blue thread lock, so I stand a chance of getting them removed without heating them in the future and damaging the black coating.
