Carl Rummel says:

Used this video to install rotors and pads on my '13 Acadia – the video made it easy! But, it could not have saved me from the pervasive "rotor screw" issue. I had to drill out 3 of the 4 screws, despite using penetrating solvent, a torch, and banging with a screwdriver/hammer. After breaking off a Torx bit in each of the first 3 screws, didn't bother on the 4th, so I wouldn't have to drill out the chunk too. The one screw I was able to remove had a broken Torx bit in it and I created a slot with a dremel and used a screwdriver. ***NOTE: after installing the new brakes and rotors, check for a BREAK-IN/BEDDING PROCEDURE!!!
