Can anyone help me with some advice please ??

I was checking my front bearings one the weekend just gone and found that the washer thingo's which fasten the front brake disk to the wheel are worn and hence loose (when i apply the front brake there is give in them). The design of this does not seem too secure and hence I am seeking advice to fellow 426 ers to see if there is a mod for this, or if not, what i need to do to fix this up (other than replace the front disk ??)..

Thanks heaps..

It's a "floating" front disk and some movement is normal. That's why the disk is attached with those snap-looking things instead of bolted. It shouldn't be rattling around like it's going to fall off, but some movement is definitely normal.
