I have 3 that have seen better days. damn heavy and expensive paper weights really.

The 3rd which is ok has one of the rotor bolts sheared off in place and I cant extract it. My easy out snapped off in there Sad

Has anyone got a decent early k100 rear drive they wanna sell before I buy one from the states?

Hey Floyd I,ve been driving around for a year with a sheared off disc holding bolt in there, just ground it flush with
the surface (Dremel), doesn't seem to be doing any damage. I broke off my ezyout in there as well, they are a tough thing to get out, and entirely unneeded except to line up the holes when putting the wheel back on.

If you want to replace the drive due to the bolt then you are wasting your cash.

Not needed. As Mr RT said.

On the rear its the same as a car. The wheel bolts hold the rotor in place. The bolts in the rotor are only to locate it and stop it falling off. I just replaced the rear rotor and the bolts didn't come out easily. I now have one bolt but 4 good wheelbolts.
