this is a really simple fix remove the wheel, brake caliper, and rotor. if part of the old stud remains, punch it out with a hammer and punch (screwdriver will work if you have one you dont mind damaging). put the new stud in the hole and lightly tap into place (it wont fully seat untill you put the wheel back on and the lugnut pulls it all the way through) Some cars require you to pull the wheel assembly completely off. for this you will need a hub bolt socket (available in a set from autozone's lone a tool)
You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.
According to my owners manual, you have to remove the entire brake assembly and pull the axle shaft to replace the bearings. The bearings are pressed in and require a special tool to remove them. Not a job I'd take on myself.
HI....Your car have "STRUTS" all around on each wheel and they each require a very special tool(Spring Compressor) without this tool, you'll need to apply 2500lbs of force to compress the coil. In essence, it's not possible to perform this task without this tool.
those are sealed units and are intergrated with the wheel rotor if the bearings are bad they must be replaced and those are dealer only items. labor for each side is about 1 hour for remove and install per side. unfortunately there are no aftermarket parts available just yet. hope this helps
