Question about 1996 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

Wheel Stud We broke a wheel stud off trying to change a tire and it looks like we will have to take the whole axle assembly apart to take the stud out. Is there a better, quicker way? The rubber boots that hold grease on both sides is busted also. Will I have to take the whole axle apart to replace these?

If you remove the wheel drum you can knock out the broken stud. It is pressed into the hub. Take the hub to aan auto parts store ( so you get the same size stud) and buy a new stud. put the stud into the hole in the hub. When you remount you remount the tire and tighten the lug nuts that will pull the new stud up tight in the hub.


Hope this helps

Good luck Loringh

    This is a FWD car with Disc brakes, not drum brakes and the hub wont come off the housing which is held in place by the ball joints. I'm having the same problem. The studs are too long to clear the housing that the hub goes through. I have removed the brakes, rotor and axel spindle nut but it still wont seperate from the housing. Is it one piece or does it eventually come apart?

if memory serves,you should be able to replace wheel stud by hammering it out backwards/inboard.then replacement is a case of pulling new stud through.

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart


Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town


I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

3 broken bolts for tire


Typically, you'll have to remove the caliper and brake rotor. Then, remove the wheel assembly form the axle and use a press to force out the broken stud. Unless you have access to the proper tools to do this, you would probably be better off having a mechanic do it- The shop near me charges about $16 to replace a broken stud and even though I can do it myself, for as much of a pain that it is to do, I'd rather just pay them to do it.
