If you look at a new wheel stud you will see it is slotted or ribbed. The ribs hold the stud in the hole. Normally you can drive the stud out the back and then put the new stud in by using the lug nut to pull it into the hole once you get it started.

SOURCE: Lug nuts and studs.

There is usually a notch in the backing(dust) plate or on the spindle itself so that the studs can be pushed through. Every now and again, depending on the vehicle you will have to remove the backing(dust) plate.
The easiest way to replace them is to do with an Impact hammer with a flat valve attachment. It will force them out and press them back in place without too much of an effort. But be sure to run a nut down flush with the hub initially when installing the studs to ensure they are installed straight. If they are installed at an angle you could run the risk of reaming out the splines and end up have to replace the whole hub.

How do I replace all five lug nuts on front driver side wheel?


They are pressed in from the backside of the wheel hub that the studs stick out from. And not like needing a heavy press- once you get the old studs driven out (usually works with a hammer or small mallet), you can easily draw the new studs right into a snug fit by using the lug nuts, the new ones you just bought along with the 5 new studs, available at most any parts store.

See it's not the lug nuts that are broken, those nuts tighten the tire to the hub by the lug nut studs that the tire fits over. It is the studs themselves that are breaking off. This is common enough that parts stores carry replacements. A chevy dealership might have just your size in stock, if you don't mind paying extra high dealership charges, but it might not be that much for these rather inexpensive items. In a lot of cases, the studs can be removed from the hub as it sits, but there are cases where the hub must be removed from the vehicle for stud replacement. You can eyeball it and pretty much tell if the studs can be removed easily, after you take the wheel (tire) off. For any work on the vehicle, don't rely on the jack. Use blocks or jack-stands always.

How to replace broken lug stud on front wheel


You can either remove the bearing, or what I do is. On the front/top of the spindle, I grind away a little of the spindle. Just enough to get the lug out. You see where to grind. You can knock the lug out with a hammer, but can't get it out of the way without grinding. Reinsert the new lug. I use a bigger nut to go over the lug, then use a lug nut to seat it into place.

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.

How do I replace broken wheel studs on the Front Right wheel hub?


The studs will plainly hammer out. Hit the threaded part till it will wobble. A hole on the back side of the hub will be there to pull the broken stud out. Replace it with a new one and use the lug nut to tighten in in. Stacking washers will help very much doing this process. If none are available have the wheel installed to get the studs in tight

Two left side front wheel studs nuts broken.


They are replaceable.
You can knock the broken studs out with a point chisel (wear safety glasses). Take the pieces and nut to an auto parts store in order to get the same nut size (don't want to use two tire tools/wrenches).

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.

Have broken studs on the front passenger side and need to know how to replace.


I assume that you are referring to the wheel studs and if so you will have to remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the brake caliper stand and the brake rotor. Drive the old stud out with a hammer. Make sure you purchase new lug nuts with the studs. If they are the acorn style, buy one that is not to help with installation. Slide the new stud in the hole from the rear of the flange, install some washers for clearance of the stud shoulder. Install the non acorn style lug nut on the stud backwards. Using a impact gun, pull the stud through. Remove the backwards lug nut and washers.
