I didn't know they used a special bit, I just used a phillips I had lying around, make sure it fits in there pretty snug or you will have issues.

Can confirm its a normal bit, but can't remember which number. Impact driver is a must depending on age of car/salt belt. I ordered extra screws off Amazon in case I had to drill one out.

Not a bad idea to have extra screws.
The screw is really not needed, just there to keep the rotor fixed to the hub for manufacturing. That's why there is only one screw.


ALSO:
Make sure to clean off any rust on the hub flange.

Im telling you, this is what you want. Impact screwdriver that fits ALL honda rotor screws like a glove. Smack the handle end with a hammer and it twists for you. Only like 20 bucks on amazon
Nice!
It fits 'cause it is a JI standard tool.

So I purchased that JIS Impact Driver and it's still a PITA to get them out sometimes. The best thing I've found is using a screw extractor and simply replacing the screws after or just leaving them off entirely. Takes 2-3 minutes per wheel. I used a the Ontel Speed Out Cobalt Extractor (4-Piece) from Home Depot.
