    New question here. Codes -stripped brake pad retention screw

    the allen head screw that holds the pads in place was rounded and I had to drill the head one size larger to get it out.
    Where can I buy a replacement?
    Can't find them online...and I'm not so sure Home Depot will stock this size.

    thanks.

    My LBS just cut a slot in the head with a dremel disc so now I just use a flat head screw driver.
    Are you able to do that to save the original part?

    Cotter pin. Shimano uses them and my LBS did it when I lost my screw. Can be ordered from Sram

    I had to cut a slot in mine as well, now using a screwdriver.

    Note to Code users: this little sucker needs to be greased before re-assembly...

    mine is pretty shot...I don't think there is enough material left to cut a slot.
    I was however, able to get it back in after a pad change.
    AND I used some anti sieze this time.

    Any idea if I can order directly from SRAM?
    I hate going to my LBS for a $.50 part when they are trying to sell bikes.

    Any chance Home Depot would have a match?

    I use a screwdriver too, rounded off first time I tried to remove it.

    I did order replacements which cost about 3, but the LBS had already cut the slot which works better. Plenty of places sell them, just search for "Avid Elixir Pad Pin Kit" (Elixir and Codes use the same pin). Did a quick Google and found one here:

    I think code pads come with the screw and c-clip.

    They don't come with the screw
