    Don't think you need them, holds the disc in place during manufacture to stop the disc from moving when attaching the brake parts.
    I could be wrong, sure someone else will pipe up otherwise.

        Reasonably confident that the S197 has a bigger wheel stud than most UK Ford cars so might not fit, mind you cheap enough even if they don't fit, let us know how you get on.

          I've never put them back on, just not necessary.

            197's are 1/2" the same as earlier models. The12mm may go on without splitting.
            S550 are 14mm.
            As others, they're for the sub assembly build up / production line.

                You can just unscrew them and reuse, but why bother. Probably just some health and safety thing stop the disc dropping off onto your toe before the pad carrier is fitted.

                  Assembly safety detail. Just bin them. The wheel and caliper hold the disc on and once in place, I've never seen a disc come loose.

                    Agreed. Not needed. Mine didnít even have them on when I changed my discs.
