Never go to a shop & never use an air gun on them

Put on with a 1/2" long flex head ratchet & then use a torque
wrench set to 80#

I use anti sieze for 40 years-- even though the trade magazines
say no

Broken, Missing Wheel Stud


this is a really simple fix remove the wheel, brake caliper, and rotor. if part of the old stud remains, punch it out with a hammer and punch (screwdriver will work if you have one you dont mind damaging). put the new stud in the hole and lightly tap into place (it wont fully seat untill you put the wheel back on and the lugnut pulls it all the way through) Some cars require you to pull the wheel assembly completely off. for this you will need a hub bolt socket (available in a set from autozone's lone a tool)

Broken wheel studs on a 1987 jeep wrangler


No need to replace the hub just the studs. The come in from the back and are splined to prevent the stud from turning with the nut. Remove the hub --drive out the broken studs and put the new ones in from the rear and drive them back in. Get the studs from the dealer spares or a good tyre retailer.

HOW REPLACE LUGS OF RF WHEEL 1998 HHONDA CRV


I think you mean the wheel studs? They are pressed in.You need to remove the wheel,brake caliper and rotor(or drum) and pound the stud out.Grease the new stud,and use HAND TOOLS with a lug nut and a washer(buy a plain open lug nut with one flat side to install it).I have tried using an impact gun to crank 'em in,but usually regret it-the threads strip or the stud breaks.Make sure to keep tightening until the head of the stud sits flush to the back of the flange.If you have difficulty tightening the stud because the axle keeps turning,have someone hold the brake pedal for you.

TIRE IS FALLING OFF THREADED STUDS BROKEN


Replace all the studs on that wheel and it's twin on the other side. To do this, you have to turn the wheel to where the stud can come out from the inside, and use a hammer (or hammer and punch for the broken ones) to push them out the back of the wheel. You'll have to turn the wheel for each one. To put the new ones in, slide it into the hole that's been vacated, and use a lugnut to pull it in. Flip the lugnut so the the cone shaped end is out (upside down), and tighten it until it pulls the stud all the way on. Take the nut off, turn the hub, and do the next one in the same way. Make sure that you do the other side too, because it's been subjected to similar loads, and is likely ready to fail as well. Mount the tires, drive the car around a little, taking a few curves, but lightly. Stop, and retorque the lugnuts. Take it on another drive, but harder in the curves, and retorque the lugnuts. You are then finished. Just a note: whenever you retorque the lugnuts, loosen first, then tighten. This keeps you from overtightening them.

One of the bolts holding the left rear tire on sheared off when I was rotating my tires.The parts are cheap but how do I replace the bolt?


Remove the tire, and the brake drum. With a suitable punch, and safety glasses on, drive the broken stud towards the center of the car. The stud will push away from you, thru the hub, and fall out. Get the new stud, and poke it thru the now existing hole on the hub. Place a flat washer over the stud, and thread a lug nut onto the stud, and tighten the lugnut until the stud is pulled all of the way into the hub. Remove the lug nut and the washer, and refite the drum and the wheel.
