    When You Buy Your Lug Nuts Get Them From Napa They Are Like $3.00 A Piece Dealer Charges $20.00 A Piece. Also Autozone Kraigen Or Another Local Shop May Have Them Call Around.

    Back To Where I Was Remove The Cotter Pin From The Center Post You Will Have To Bend It Strait Then Pull It Through.

    Next Move On To The Lock Nut It Will Just Slide Off The Center Fallowed By The Spring Washer.

    Now Remove The Huge Nut In The Center Its The Drive Axle Hub Nut.

    You Probably Already Removed The Speed Sensor Its The Little Back Piece With The Wire. If Not Remove The Nut And Set This Piece Aside.

    ok now heres where you'll get really involved lol
    Remove The Two Steering Knuckle to strut Bracket Bolts
    it will be on the back youll have to push the center of the drive axle on the front to get a closed end wrench on The Two Bolts.

    Now Your Good Pop Out Your Old Lugs With A Hammer And A Punch Or A Screw Driver Whichever Is Readily Available.

    You May Have To Take It To Have The Lugs Pressed In.

    Trust Me I Can Usually Pound Them In By Hand On Most Vehicles But On This One It Was A No Go Even The Old Impact Wouldn't Do It.

    Happy Fixing And If You Have Any Other Questions Shoot Away
    Sincerely,
    Michael Scott

    Oh And Just So you Know These Lugs Always Break I Don't know Why I Broke All 5 By Hand At The Shop.

    Also For Finding Your Lugs They Are Exactly The Same As The Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Voyager And Your Town And Country.
    All The Same 2003 to 2006

    More then likley you do not have to take all the parts off like the other guy is saying they usually put cutouts so you can spin where the broken lugnut is then pound it out with a mini sledge hammer then you put the new stud in through the back through the hole and the way you get this one tight is you put it through and the trick is tooo tighten the new lugnut on it and it pulls the new stud right through...

    If it is one of the main bolts securing the wheel, you will need to drill out the stub that is left, and use a suitable screw extractor to remove it cleanly.



    You may also need to clamp the part while working on it - as it will spin otherwise.

  • Richard Perkins
    Richard Perkins Jan 14, 2009

    If you use bolts to secure the wheel, use the above method, if they are studs - they will be held in from the rear.



    If they are studs, you should be able to drive it through with a large pin punch - but use a heavy hammer to support the hub behind the area (not immediately behind the stud - but just one side)



    Use a nut with copper grease and two washers to wind in the new stud.

Removing the disc brake caliper and rotor on a 1993 Mazda protege if it is stuck


To replace the lug nut studs you will indeed have to remove the brake caliper, brake rotor, and hub nut, then the hub.

If you post an email (get a temp address if you like from Hotmail) I will send you a workshop manual.

I am working on a 93 prelude trying to pull front roters to replace broken lug nuts. but when try to losen 1 1/2 nut cannot get lose and donnot see any locking mechnizm to stop it from spinning off ....


I do not know for sure about the prelude but once you take the lug nuts off of most vehicles, the only thing holding the rotors on is the brake pads. Usually, you can remove a couple of bolts from the back of the calipers, maybe just one and the calipers swing on a hings away from the rotors. One swift kick to the rotor will usually free it up. Who needs a rubber mallet.

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.

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

I need to know the procedure for r and r on a front rotor if this is something that can be done at home with limited tools?


1999 Taurus/Sable Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1999 Taurus/Sable Workshop Manual REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Procedure revision date: 06/25/1998 Disc Removal
  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.

  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Handle front disc brake rotor (1125) and disc brake caliper (2B120) assembly in such a way as to prevent deformation of front disc brake rotor , and nicking, scratching or contamination of brake linings/rotor surfaces.
    NOTE: To prevent damage, do not allow disc brake caliper to hang by the front brake hose (2078) .


    Remove caliper anchor plate bolts and discard. Position disc brake caliper out of the way. Prevent separation of caliper housing from anchor bracket because contamination of guide pin journals can occur.
  1. NOTE: If excessive force must be used during front disc brake rotor removal, the front disc brake rotor should be checked for runout prior to installation.


    If additional force is required to remove front disc brake rotor , apply Rust Penetrant and Inhibitor F2AZ-19A501-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESR-M99C56-A on front and rear rotor/hub mating surfaces. First, strike front disc brake rotor between lug bolts (1107) with a plastic hammer.

Broken lugnut bolts 2005 chrysler town country


I could not wait 24hours for a responce, so I figuredit out on my own. I pressed in on the axel and when it receded onthe other sidethere was enough room for a scoket to take off the bearing case which is where you put in the lug nut bolts. Had them pressed into place and put everything esle back together, we are now up and running. Would like a refund on the service charge thank you seeing how know one helped me out except asking if I wanted to pay more for the answer. Have a great day
