My Ride: 330i Sport Package
Just a quick question about 330i rotors...

Are the rotors on a 2002 330i sedan pressed on where I can't take them off myself? Let me explain...I'm used to changing rotors on my dad's 94 acura legend. Well u can take two bolts and screw them in to the point where they seperate the rotor from the control arm or whatever. Are our rotors like that where it has those two holes that I can do that? Because I know other brakes u have to have a special machine to get them off.

Thanks.

No, there is one small screw to remove and then you can get them off by semi-gentle negotiation with a rubber mallet. If you don't intend to re-use them after turning, you can go off... while being patient..

For the rear, DON"T have the p-brake engaged!

edit: so no two screws to help you "press" the rotor out what I know of.. would be nice..
