It's nice when they come off easy like that. I just pulled the set screws on my E46 last night and was able to get the fronts just holding the rotor with my other hand. That compared to when I took rotors off my GTI I had to cut a notch in the screw so I could use a beefy flat head screw driver. Go figure...

Ok, so it sounds pretty easy to remove rotors... Now, how much more to take the wheel bearing off?

Can someone confirm that the part number for the hub/bearing is 31222282670 and 31126760203 for screws?

What are the torque specs for the 4 screws?

Thanks!

Do I need to remove the caliper carrier to remove the brake disc or do I just need to remove the caliper?

just the caliper the rotor falls out, just a little to the side.

Did you have to remove your studs? I recently installed studs with loctite and I will need to change my rear rotors in about 15k miles.

I changed my studs at the same time so didn't have that to worry about. The rotor should still come off by slipping over the studs as they are threaded into the hub assembly thru the rotor. Might require some wiggling to pull em and the caliper carrier would be in the way also at that point. Might have to remove that unlike my route.

I just did this over the weekend and took a couple of pictures while i was at it. Excuse the quality, iphone was all I had with me.

Rotor with Caliper removed



Rotor with set screws removed



Picture of the set screws



Picture of the rotor removed



My car has ~59K miles on it and the rotors weren't hard to remove at all. Drivers side came off just by pulling and the passenger side required two hits with a mallet and popped right off. Overall, this was a pretty easy job, did both front rotors and pads in about 2 hours including jacking up the car and swapping to my summer wheels.
