How to fix Jeep Cherokee XJ hatch Lift gate ball stud problem


I decided to finish what I started. My liftgate was starting to have issues on the passenger side because the ball stud was pushing the sheet metal out of whack and starting to face the front of my XJ.
I drilled several holes next to the stud, next to the gap that was created by the ball stud bending the metal. I was able to get a screw driver in there and I was able to pry out the stud and nut. I hammered the metal flat and in to allow clearance for the nut when I reinstalled it. I also painted the exposed metal for protection.
I bought some medium thick flat strap from Home Depot and cut a 3.5 inch piece off of it. The old ball stud is fairly soft metal. Use a Torx bit or put Vise Grips on the stud shoulder that butts up against the mounting metal face. I then drilled a hole for the stud and bolted it into the new piece and painted it.
I stuck it up where I wanted it and marked where I wanted the Rivet holes. You really only need holes on the edge that faces the lifgate because there is always forward preasure on the plate. Drilled the holes in the plate off of the XJ on top of a piece of wood, then held the plate back up where I wanted to mount it and drilled a hole into my XJ's sheet metal, popped in a rivet and it held it in place while did the other 2 holes. I did the drivers side plate 4 years ago and it is still solid as a rock and is also when I replaced the struts I bought at Autozone. They are very good quality, they have held up in temps of -30 to temps of +118. It raises all by itself and actually has a lot of tension on it when you close it, they are very strong struts.

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?

Thermostat broken stud


You can replace it. There are several types of screw extractors out there. They usually come with a drill bit for the correct size extractor. You will need to find out what size stud it is. Once you have determined that chose the appropriate size drill bit and extractor. Lowes or home depot carry them. Drill into the center of the broken stud. Be careful not to drill too deep as you might damage the thermostat housing. Once you have drill into the stud use the extractor to remove the broken stud. Napa auto parts or autozone should carry the stud size and length that you need. Purchase a stud and 2 plain nuts that match the thread of the stud. The nuts will be used to install the stud. Thread The stud into the thermostat housing. Once it is tight by hand stop. Thread the first plain nut onto the stud far enough so that you can get the second nut onto the stud and have a thread or two sticking out of the second nut. Once the two nuts are on the stud hold the first nut with a wrench and tighten the second nut tight against it. This will allow you to finish installing the stud. Once the nuts are tightened together, use a wrench (on the second nut only) to run the stud down into the thermostat housing. Do not overtighten the stud as you may crack the housing. Run the stud down into the housing unit the stud is the same height as the existing stud. Then use a wrench to hold the second nut and loosen the fist nut away from the second nut. Remove both nuts from the stud. You stud is now installed and you can reinstall the thermostat. If you have any questions you can email me at dplumb1@me.com Good luck

Broken front wheel stud onhyundai terracan


this is a very in depth procedure I do not recommend doing this if you cannot or have not taken a wheel bearing off. That being said this is how you do it:
after you have removed the wheel. remove the brake caliper from the steering knuckle* after hanging hte caliper in a safe location try to knock the stud through the wheel bearing**, if the stud does not come free of the steering knuckle then the wheel bearing must be removed, there are generally 3 'E-Torx' bolts that retain the wheel bearing to the hub on the steering knuckle ( you can turn the wheel left to right if need be but be sure that you have jacked up the entire front of the vehicle and that the parking beak is on and the wheels are chocked steady) once you have the broken stud out of the hub you then need to replace the new one. here is how that is done; set the new stud in place then apply a few large washers on the new stud that is seated in the hub. next thread on the lug nut and start tightening the nut down and draw the stud onto the hub, also it is a good idea to tighten down the stud backwards if it is through style lug, if not its no big deal either way, if you bottom out the lug you will ruin the chrome cap so it is a good idea to use as many washers as possible i usually use about 5-6, one inch washers for this procedure. be sure to check the " * " items at the end of these instructions. they will save ou time and trouble.


*YOU DO NOT HAVE OT REMOVE THE BRAKE HOSE FROM THE VEHICLE

** SOME TIMES YOU CAN ROTATE THE WHEEL BEARING AROUND AND GET A CLEAR AREA TO REMOVE THE WHEEL STUD FROM THE WHEEL BEARING WITH OUT REMOVING THE WHEEL BEARING ITSELF

    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!!

    Wiper transmisson stud striped. how to replace?


    goto car shop, get a "self tapping nut", for the thickness of bolt stud you have on the wiper, a self tapping bolt will cut its own threads onto the wiper bolt, follow the instructions that come with the nut - they're all slightly different. You can get these nuts from any well stocked hardware store - they are considered a permanent repair.

    I need to replace my ball joints. can you give me some tips on how to do this? I have never done this before and i would appreciate some pointers on what i need to do to get the job done. Thank you very...


    UPPER BALL JOINTS
    1. Raise and support the truck with jackstands. Remove wheel.
    2. Support the lower control arm with a floor jack.
    3. Remove the cotter pin from the upper ball stud and loosen, but do not remove the stud nut.
    4. Using a forcing-type ball joint separator tool, loosen the ball stud in the steering knuckle. When the stud is loose, remove the tool and the stud nut. It may be necessary to remove the brake caliper and wire it to the frame to gain clearance.
    5. On R-series trucks, drill out the rivets using a 1 / 8 in. drill bit. Remove the ball joint assembly.
    6. On C-series trucks, drill out the rivets using a 1 / 8 in. drill bit to start a pilot hole. Drill out the rivets with a 1 / 2 in. bit. Remove the ball joint assembly using a screw-type forcing tool.

    To install:
    Installation is the reverse of removal but please note the following important steps.
    1. On R-series vehicles, tighten the ball joint nuts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
    2. On R-series vehicles, tighten the ball stud nut as follows:

      1 / 2 ton trucks: 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm), plus the additional torque to align the cotter pin. Do not exceed 90 ft. lbs. (122 Nm) and never back the nut off to align the pin. 3 / 4 and 1 ton trucks: 90 ft. lbs. (122 Nm), plus additional torque necessary to align the cotter pin. Do not exceed 130 ft. lbs. (176 Nm) and never back off the nut to align the pin.
    3. On C-series vehicles, tighten the ball joint nuts as follows:

      1988-90 models, tighten the nuts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) for the 15 and 25 Series and 52 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) for 35 the Series. 1991-98 models, tighten the nuts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).

    Lug stud


    Here's another thought - if the stud isn't too badly stripped, you may be able to use a re-threading die to restore the threads. The thread type and size will depned on the make and model of your car. An autmotive parts store can usually help with this.
    ------------------------------

    If you must replace the stud,

    A bad stud can usually be driven out through the back of the axle flange. You said the stud was stripped. You can:

    Force one of the lug nuts onto the stripped stud maybe two to three turns , then take a drift pin and drive the stud out the back. The stud will have grooves that hold it in place on the axle flange. You willl hhave to hold the stud head with vice grips and remove the lug nut to get the stud out.

    To install a new stud, insert it from the back, add a little grease to the knurls (grooves) and pull it into place with a lug nut. The stud must be firmly seated in the axle flange.
