The rotor and hub assembly are held together by the studs,you must first remove the 4-wheel drive hub assembly,then the wheel bearing nuts,and pull the hub and rotor off as a unit. Next lay it(back down) on a piece of wood, using a drift punch drive the studs out. Turn it over ,lay it(face down) on a block of wood, line the new stud splines up with the grooves in the hub and drive them in with the punch and reassemble. A set of dentist style picks will be helpful with the clip in the 4wd hub and a 4 lug 4wd nut wrench will be needed.

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.

Broadcast yourself


What are you trying to remove the spare tire from? Is it mounted on the axle? If you removed the lug nuts and it seems like its glued to the rotor, put the lug nuts back in about 3/4 of the way, then lower the jack to put come pressure on the wheel, roll back and forth a bit if needed and your wheels will likely break free. Sometimes corrosion makes the wheel stick. Good luck!

I have sheared a front wheel lug on my 1995 landcruiser Amazon. Friends had a puncture and didn,t tighten wheel nuts properly on spare. How do I replace.


The lug nuts are press fitted in the rotor. You should be able to hit the bolt with a hammer(or hammer and punch if the bolt is sheered flush with the rotor) and it should come out.

Instructions to replace sheared off lugs / studs - 1997 Chevy


You can remove old lug by driving it out with a decent sized hammer. To re-install, push new one into flange from backside and stack washers on wheel side, leaving enough room for the lug nut to go on. (backwards...flat side in) Tighten the nut, pulling the lug into the flange, till it is flush (like the unbroken ones) I suggest that you put some lube on lug threads to prevent binding while doing this.
