Cut the stud off shorter then knock it out. Then take the new one to the grinder and grind a flat spot on the splined end so it will go in to the bearing hub.

grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.

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.

take off tire. remove old stud by hammering it out with a punch. put a socket behind axle plate so as not to break the plate. when replacing, just start stud from back by hand, then use a lug nut to pull it in tight. when tight replace tire!

easiest way is to beat out the old ones with a big brass hammer and then install using the lug nut and washers

however, the official method requires a press

My 91 Honda Accord EX wagon has a broken lug on front driver side. How do i fix it, & will it be ok in the meantime with the three lug nuts on tight?

It is not recommended to drive it like that. It's not too bad to replace but it depends on your level of mechanical skill, You need to remove the brake caliper and disc and then you can simply knock the remains of the broken stud out with a hammer and punch, To fit the new one insert the stud and then put a large nut over the thread, then fit the lug nut and tighten it to pull the stud into the hub, then simply remove the lug nut and put it all back together.

The screw stud for the lug nut broke off in the lug nut. how do I get the remaining part of the screw stud out??

You take off wheel, (if it's a front wheel stud) you take a punch and punch the stud inward and remainder of stud will fall out. If it's rear, remove drum and do the same. Wheel studs are pressed into the hubs from factory, you can punch them out and pull new ones in using lug nut. Stop by a local parts store they should be able to get you the new stud and lug nut and give you more info.

How to replace lug nut studs 2002 chevrolet cavalier

take a hammer and a punch and pound it in, it will pop out the back of the hub assembly, then you get your new bolt, slide it through the back, same way the old one came out, throw a few washers on it and use the lug nut to draw it out till it catches, take the lug nut and washers back off, put the tire back on and use a little extra torque on that stud to insure it is all the way in place.

Good Luck!!

I broke my lugs and studs on my 2002 ford excursion on the rear wheel

they are pressed in so you will have to get a punch and a hammer to beat them out. The new ones will have to be pressed in or beat in with a hammer. be careful not to get them in crooked.

I broke a lug nut and I need to know how to get off the back plate to get to lug nut

If you mean the stud is broken where the lug nuts screws in to, all you need is a 5 pound hammer and hammer the stud till it breaks free from the wheel hub. With the new stud, just place back in place and use the nut to pull it back in to a press fit to the hub. Good luck and should be a 10 min fix.

Half right...pound out, use a stack of washers and put nut on backwards and draw stud in. Oil on washers and stud threads helps.

Studs have to be hammered out through the back of the hub, and the new ones have to be hammered in.
