Easy. Take wheel and tire off, and remove the brake drum, if it has drum brakes. With a hammer, hit the broken stud until it pops out. Slide the new stud into the hole, and, using some thick washers, screw the lugnut onto the new stud, over the washers. Tighten it until the stud is pulled all of the way in. Easier done with an air wrench, however.

Cant get tire off on 2003 toyota matrix


tire off rim
wheel/tire rim off axle?
what? are you skinning tires off rims?
lug bolts too tight, ? (a disease of all tires shops this)
my wild guess is, you meant the lug bolts are too tight.
if yes, are all of them like that, ????
if yes, that means , they put them on too thight
my car is 60-80 flt/lbs the dig bulbs at the local tire shop use
and impact gun at 150. so they never see me again. ever.
i do most work my self even at my old age, but i never skin tires.
did that by hand at 19yo but not now.
take them off and then put them back at the spec torque
some dinky cars like these can warp the rotors set too tight.
the operators guide in every car, made shows the spec, read it.
lost the guide, bingo here it is

read page.351, 76 ft-lbs, foot - pounds, use THAT.
i use antisieze lube on mine, for 50 years.

One of the bolts holding the left rear tire on sheared off when I was rotating my tires.The parts are cheap but how do I replace the bolt?


Remove the tire, and the brake drum. With a suitable punch, and safety glasses on, drive the broken stud towards the center of the car. The stud will push away from you, thru the hub, and fall out. Get the new stud, and poke it thru the now existing hole on the hub. Place a flat washer over the stud, and thread a lug nut onto the stud, and tighten the lugnut until the stud is pulled all of the way into the hub. Remove the lug nut and the washer, and refite the drum and the wheel.

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.

Need to replace broken lug bolt


If you have room behind the broken lug you can usually drive it out with a good smack of a sledge hammer. To re-install, use a stack of washers between the nut and flange and draw the lug into position. (plenty of oil on threads to avoid galling)

2 lug bolts on my 4 lug bolt tire broke off.


assuming the bolts that broke, broke while the vehicle was in motion,
the wheel is bent
when the broken bolts were at the bottom, there was twice as much leverage between the wheel edge and the other bolt, and nothing to restrain the near edge, it would bend like cardboard
replace the wheel
