Question about 2004 Kia Rio
How do you remove the rear drum to get to the stud.
Loosen the remaining lug nuts, then jack up the car, take off the wheel, and ease off the brake drum. Whack the end of the stud to start it out of the hole, then take a rod, buggered up socket extension, or other object and drive out the stud the rest of the way. Be careful not to use too much force or you will damage the wheel bearings. If it doesn't want to come out, take the hub off, put it down on a solid surface, and whack the heck out of it. Once the stud is out insert the stud into the hole and thread on the lug nut to pull the lug into the hub. After going as far as it will go, back off the lug nut, put the drum and wheel back on, thread the lug nuts back on, hand tighten, and then lower the vehicle to the ground and tighten the rest of the way.
