jack up vehicle, remove tire. knock out old stud with a hammer and punch. put new stud in from back if need be. to draw it up tight.use a lug nut with something under it so when you tighten the nut it brings the stud into position. remove the nut you put on. and replace the tire. good-day! if the brakes and rotor are in the way. you will have to remove them to replace the wheel stud.
you don`t say if its front or rear lug nut(assuming you mean stud).remove the wheel and then the drum or rotor,then take a hammer and hit the broken stud to remove it from the hub assembly.with the correct wheel stud insert it through the hole and make sure its in straight,install the wheel nut and tighten the nut to pull the stud into the hub until all the way in.you may have to install washer on the stud and re-install the nut and tighten until the stud is seated all the way.
Remove wheel. Take off outer driveshaft nut. Remove lower ball joint
pinch bolt & separate ball joint from spindle. Pull rotor &
spindle out & away to pull driveshaft outer splined end out of rotor
center hub. Look on the back of the spindle for the 4 bolts that hold
in the wheel bearing. Use a 12 point socket to remove the 4 bolts and
remove wheel bearing from spindle (out towards the wheel stud side).
Probably will have to use a air chisel to get it out. Once it's out undo
the 4 bolts on the outer (wheel stud side) of the rotor and remove the
rotor from the hub. Clean & lube the hole where the bearing was in
the spindle & the inner face of the hub. MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAN
otherwise you may get a pulsation on braking if theres a piece of rust
or dirt between the rotor center & the hub face. Reverse procedure
If the rear bolts don't come out then you will have to use a
slide hammer to separate the bearing to replace the rotor and there is a
very good chance you will need to replace the wheel bearing after
you're done (noisy on road test).
Not the job to do at home,
usually an easy 2-3 hours per side if things go bad (book time is 2.2
hrs per side). Use good quality rotors as you don't want to have to do
it again because a cheap rotor gave you a pulsation.
Hi, what you will need to do is take 5 to 6 washers and take the wheel off and put the washers on over the stud that is loose and take a lug nut and tighten it down till it pulls the stud back into the hub. if it does not tighten up and spins you will need to replace it. just take the brake caliper and bracket off and the rotor. then pound the old stud out and insert the new one then use the washers and lug nut to pull the stud into the hub. good luck
1. first take the wheel off so you can see the the caliper and the
rotor. make sure the car is on stands and not just waving around on a
2. look behind the caliper and use your finger to locate, a
pair of bolts behind the caliper... they will be holding the caliper
into place on the surface of the rotor, by a simple look and feel you
can see these, they should take a 17mm socket undo them and remove the
bolts. at this stage you should see the the caliper become loose.
3. remove the caliper by pulling it up and away from the rotor
4. now you can see the rotor remove this it will simply slide away.
5. this will leave the hub exposed and the studs.. you will see that they are wedged into the hub
6. remove the stud/s by hitting them / it with a hammer be careful to not damage the other studs if you just replacing one.
7. there is one spot where the will be a gap and you will be
able to get the stud in behind the hub and have a little bit of room,
rotate the hub to there, make sure the car is out of gear or this will
be very difficult :)
8 once the stud is in take something you can use as a spacer
like a larger then the stud nut. for example and then put one of the
wheel nuts on and tighten slightly
9. use a hammer and drive the back of the stud home, and slowly tighten the wheel nut as you go.
10. once this is done your finished put all the bits back together in the opposite order and replace the wheel.
Good luck and wear ear plug and a 5 pound sledge hammer works best for this job.
need to take the tire off the use an impact wrench to pull of the big nut holding the cv axle on the vehicle then remove the rotor you will see the studs use a hammer to tap it out then tap in the new one.
Only if there is an Acsess Hole Directly Behind the STUD'S PUNCH THE Broken SHORT one OUT But there May Not Be Enough ROOM FOR the NEW LONG STUD to go in between the HUB & Rotor Check this FIRST If you see GOOD CLEARANCE TO GET The new STUD in Then just Drive the old one out , and Use A LARGER than Stud Nut Or Washers to Pull New Stud Threw some Before Putting Wheel on. Then Put Wheel on And Tighten Wheel , Retorque after a Few Hundred Miles.
dont take the hub off take off the rotor and the caliper hit the stud with a hammer and it will come out just turn it to get to the next one to put them in put the stud in and put an over size nut on the stud then the lug nut then as you tighten it it will pull through
