Question about Cars & Trucks
Do i have to remove the hub ? and if so how? thank you
Unfortunately, removing the hub will damage the hub bearing and ABS tone ring as they are pressed together. There are aftermarket studs that are able to slip into the empty stud hole but you have to modify the back of the stud to clear the tone ring. Using a brass drift and a dead blow mallet, strike the end of the stud to push it back in till it clears the splined area. You may have to shorten the broken stud with a cutting tool to get it out past the tone ring. Insert the new stud into the hub and using a half inch washer and lug nut, tighten the lug nut with an impact wrench till it seats on the back side of the hub. The lug nut must be a standard lug nut--- no threaded cap style or chrome style will work as the lug nut is installed BACKWARDS to avoid damaging the chamfered end.

I believe you can turn the hub so as the stud will clear everything on the back side of it. Just poke your head around the back side with the wheel off and make sure there is enough room for the stud to come out. If you can't get enough room then you will need to take it off. If you have already got the new stud you will notice that about the last 1/2 inch of the shaft has been knurled and swelled up, this is what holds the stud into the hub. a couple of really good wacks with a large persuader is usually enough to get the old one out. you can usually pull use the lug nut to pull the new one into the hub.

There should only be two bolts on the back of the caliper holding it into the knuckle. Removing those two bolts should free the caliper. In fact I believe they're 12 or 13 millimeter bolts.

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

grind a flat spot on the round head of the new stud this should give enough clearance to install it. don't pull the hub this will damage the bearing.
