    Actually you have to pull off the caliper and the caliper brace and the rotor should come out, Its quite easy all you need is a 5lb. sledge a couple of spacers, a new stub and a lugnut that fits, You take the sledge and beat the bad stud out, then feed the new stud from behind place the washers on the stud then the lugnut, tighten the lugnut till the stud sit all the way in...

    I wouldn't suggest beating on the stud, instead use something to press the stud out. Beating on the studs will cause damage to the unit bearing in your hub.

How do you replace a wheel stud on the front of a 2003 chrysler town and country

In most cases the brake caliper and rotor will have to be removed. The affected stud can then be pounded out with a hammer. An air gun should be used to install the new stud using a spacer between the stud and hub assembly. Put the nut on the stud and using the air gun, pull it through un til it seats against the spacer and the hub

How to remove rear hub on a 2002 Chrysler town and country van with rear disc brakes and its front wheel drive

I have done this for similar models. I did not remove the hub. Once you have the broken stud out, just rotate the hub to find a spot where you can insert the stud from behind the hub, (carefully so you dont damage the threads and/or splines) making sure the splines from the stud line up with the splines in the hub. When I got it in snug, I still had to fill up the stud with flat washers until there is only about 3/4 of an inch of stud showing and install the nut (backwards ... flat side of nut to the washers!!) onto the stud. Then tighten down the nut until the stud is completely seated in the hole, no gap at the back between the stud end and the hub. Remove nut and washers.

Did this help?

I am wanting to replace the rear wheel studs that are broken. The wheel hub flange won't come off. Is there a special puller for this, do I need to apply more force or is there another method for removal?

You do not remove the wheel hub flange, just follow the procedure that I replied to earlier, and this is the procedure if you do not want to obtain a special tool for pressing the lug studs;

First you will have to pound the broken lug studs out of the wheel hub, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.

1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.

2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down to take up the slack.

3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.

Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.

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

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.

How do you get the calipers off the rear?

Firstly you need to remove the park brake cables from the calipers. undo the bolts that hold the caliper to the hub assembly. lift the caliper away and yes you can buy new studs and nuts/bolts but you may need to go to a main chrysler agent to get them
