Yes you can, i worked long time in tyre fitment garage in south africa, some of those cars have only 2 studs keeping the rim to the hub,but check if the stud is tight regularly.

SOURCE: broken wheel stud

1. get new studs and nuts
2.remove wheel
3. remove caliper at bracket to spindle connection(2 18mm bolts?)you may need to remove caliper from bracket,but not always nessacery. Or remove drum,then to #5
4.remove rotor,will need a hammer, tap inbetween studs dont wreck good studs and see if new studs can be installed without removing parking brake shoes. If there is no clearance to get new stud in you will need to remove shoes.
5.Pound out old studs place new stud in hole use a washer on outside then put a nut on and tighten to install stud, A air gun or some type of impact tool will be very helpful. Check to see that stud has enough threds to pull stud all the way thru ,add more washers if nessecary dont let the nut run out of threds it will **** to get back off and wreck new stud.
6. if you dont have air gun or feel comfertable removing brakes bring it to a reputable garage, shouldnt cost more than $70+ parts to get all new studs put in on one wheel.

Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place

SOURCE: 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 to replace front broken wheel stud on a '02 jeep grand limited 4x4...steps involve to replace the bolt with a new one? thanks!


Remove wheel, brake caliper and rotor. Give the broken lug a good shot with a decent weight hammer and drive it out of the hub flange. Put new stud into hole, place a stack of washers on it and place the lug nut on backwards (flat side in)
Use oil on the threads to prevent binding, tighten lug 'till stud is seated, replace everything you removed.

I have a 96 grand prix and my driver side tire lug nuts keep loosining up on me and damaged all the lugs, they are poppin off. How do i fix this


You will probably have to remove all the studs and put new ones in. They are probably damaged beyond repair now. Take your wheel off, and just slam them with a hammer. They'll pop out the back. To install new ones, just put them through the holes from the back, and then pull them through by tightening the wheel nut. You will probably have to take the brake assembly off to make room to remove and replace the studs.

My tire studs wont stay locked in


hi if you put the studs all the way and have come loose again take one of the studs out and check to see if the locking serations in the the wheel hub are in good nick as these and the serations on the stud have to be a tight fit and be pulled right up to the wheel hub you can do this by by putting a sleeve over the stud and pull it up using the wheel nut if they seem ok try a stud locking fliud on the studs before fitting and keep an eye on them if they come loose again you will have to change the wheel hub and locking studs yates210456
