Wheel stud removal honda odyssey

I am currently doing the front driver side. If you have the big center nut without a cotter pin, I would suggest you have a shop do it. There is no way to remove and install lug bolts on this particular vehicle without removing the hub, and this hub SUCKS to remove. Here is what I did, and NO, I do not recommend doing it this way. Remove wheel and brake caliper assy. Suspend brake to keep weight off the brake line. Remove two philips head screws holding rotor to hub. These screws can be frozer tight. I used an impact type screwdriver to remove these. Remove the large nut..lmao...sounds easy. This nut is 36mm but i got away with using a 1-7/16 6 sided impact socket with a 1inch impact wrench. A huge breaker bar would work as well. I imagine the foot pounds to be astronomical and I doubt most saturday mechs will have the tools to remove it. Put the rotor back on, but backwards. Use a couple of lug nuts to bolt it to the hub. There is enough left of the broken lugs to use them. I then took a typical harmonic balance removal tool and utilized the two holes that had the philips head screws. Using the spindle as my center, I applied pressure to the spindle, causing it to retreat back into the hole. When the pressure got decent, I took two small pry type tools and put them between the back of the hub and fixed piece, probably called a steering knuckle or something. Kept wiggling and prying little by little...added a little more balancer pressure...more works it way out..finally. I believe the manual says to use a large slide hammer system to remove the hub. Wish I had one. Hammer out the old studs, press in the new. You can also using open lug nuts to pull the studs flush. Just make sure the splines are lined up. Assy is much much easier.

Do I need a puller to get front hub off for replacing lug nut studs?

A puller probably won't help because there is nothing to pull against. a BFH (big f----- hammer) and a little heat and the hub assy. should come out. It is not a press fit, but over the years the rust makes them stick pretty tough.

Removing front rotar

rotar doesn't contain the studs, the plate/hub behind the rotar does - you need a 32mm socket to undo the axle nut to then get at the hub (need a flat screw driver to lever the nut tang up first). If it's seized on put the rotar and wheel back on (leave the axle nut off) and gently rock it in a top-bottom motion (not radially or axially) to free it up. you can then gain access to the hub and studs. put the wheel nuts back on the studs 2 -3 turns so that you have a 'seat' and using a bolt with a smaller dia to punch them out

To remove that hub you will destroy the bearing. Because you have to remove it with a slide hammer. It is not necessary to remove the hub to change the studs. Remove the caliper, caliper bridge and rotor. Using a hammer simply knock out the stud or studs you want to replace. Put new stud in and using a sleeve that has a bigger diameter than the stud (I use a big nut, like the one on the axle) put big nut over stud and screw lug nut on stud and tighten until head of stud is flush with hub. Re-install rotor, caliper bridge and caliper. Hope this helps.

Broken Lug Studs

You have to remove the hub to remove the bolts, if they won't come out by rotating the hub.

To remove the hub, take the cap off at the center of the hub (the cap would be poking you a the center of the hub, and is about 2 inches in diameter.

There should be a cotter key or something preventing the spindle nut from turning. Remove it. If there is a cover over the spindle nut, remove it. Take the spindle nut off. Pull lightly on the hub, and it will come off. Watch for the front bearing to pop out.

To reassemble, put hub back on spindle, put bearing and washer against bearing, thread on spindle nut and tighten while rotating hub. Back off 1/2 to 1 flat add cover (if used) and install cotter key.
