To do it properly you need to remove the hub.

But you can cut out the web shown in the picture and can be removed once the disc is off, had mine like that for two years and not caused any problems

What exactly is the purpose of these? Do all cars have them?

Mine are extremely corroded - will this cause any long term problems?
