Hi if you put the studs all the way and have come loose again take one of the studs out and check to see if the locking serations in the the wheel hub are in good nick as these and the serations on the stud have to be a tight fit and be pulled right up to the wheel hub you can do this by by putting a sleeve over the stud and pull it up using the wheel nut if they seem ok try a stud locking fliud on the studs before fitting and keep an eye on them if they come loose again you will have to change the wheel hub and locking studs yates210456

How do I replace all five lug nuts on front driver side wheel?


They are pressed in from the backside of the wheel hub that the studs stick out from. And not like needing a heavy press- once you get the old studs driven out (usually works with a hammer or small mallet), you can easily draw the new studs right into a snug fit by using the lug nuts, the new ones you just bought along with the 5 new studs, available at most any parts store.

See it's not the lug nuts that are broken, those nuts tighten the tire to the hub by the lug nut studs that the tire fits over. It is the studs themselves that are breaking off. This is common enough that parts stores carry replacements. A chevy dealership might have just your size in stock, if you don't mind paying extra high dealership charges, but it might not be that much for these rather inexpensive items. In a lot of cases, the studs can be removed from the hub as it sits, but there are cases where the hub must be removed from the vehicle for stud replacement. You can eyeball it and pretty much tell if the studs can be removed easily, after you take the wheel (tire) off. For any work on the vehicle, don't rely on the jack. Use blocks or jack-stands always.

How to remove studs from right rear of a 2003 ford explorer i just want to replace the studs


You have the tire off. So take the brake clapper off.then the roder should come right off. Lay the roder down and hit the bad stud with a hamer it should come out easy. Put a new one in the same way but from the back.

Wheel studs broke off


A shop can install new studs in a short time. The old studs can be pressed out or punched out, and new ones installed and drawn into a tight fit.

Hoe to replace wheel lugs


    • 1 Purchase a new stud and nut. Inspect the others on the same wheel for signs of wear if you don't know when the stud first received damage. Get more if necessary so you don't have to tear the wheel apart again. If you don't know the size, take the stud to the store with you once you remove it.
    • 2 Look in the trunk for the jack. You need to get blocks before you jack up the Galant. Block the wheel diagonal to your jack placement. Jack the edge up enough to remove the tire.
    • 3 Take off the tire, then the calipers and the rotor in order to access the hub in the front. If the rear brakes are drum, take off the drum. If they're disc, use the same process as you would in the front.
    • 4 Line the stud up with an opening in the back so there is room to both remove and replace it. You may need to remove the hub and insert it in the vise for this step if you have no clearance.
    • 5 Hit the end of the stud with a mallet to drive it through the hub and out the back. You can insert the new stud in as far as you can by hand.
    • 6 Thread two wheel bolts onto the stud. As you tighten down the bolts, it pulls the stud through the hole. Watch in the back and when you see the stud seat against the back of the hub, stop.
    • 7 Put all the parts back onto the vehicle wheel in the order that you removed them. Tighten the replaced the stud in your Galant.
