Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place

Make sure all tires are chalked,put vehicle in neutral,turn drum till it has a clear spot to knock stud out,use hammer and wooden block,don't use metal punch,can cause burr on end of stud and not want to come out of hole.Both tires on back may need lifted in air to turn.

Broken wheel stud


Unless you hit a curb or something you have bumper to bumper warranty for 3yrs.36 k miles.If not then you can remove the wheel and brake caliper and rotor.Then pound the stud out with a hammer and reinstall the new one.Use a socket or some type of spacer and put on new stud once you have put the stud through the axle.Install the new nut on and start tightening til the stud is seated on the axle.Reinstall the wheel and torque to specs.Depending on type of wheel could be 80-100 ft.lbs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Broken stud on left front wheel


Remove: wheel, brake caliper & rotor. Drive out the remaining stub with a hammer and punch. Insert a new stud and pull it into place by tightening the lug nut. Before running out of threads, remove the nut, insert a stack of washers or a large nut which slips over the threads without contacting them, tighten the lug nut to seat the stud.

I have a 96 grand prix and my driver side tire lug nuts keep loosining up on me and damaged all the lugs, they are poppin off. How do i fix this


You will probably have to remove all the studs and put new ones in. They are probably damaged beyond repair now. Take your wheel off, and just slam them with a hammer. They'll pop out the back. To install new ones, just put them through the holes from the back, and then pull them through by tightening the wheel nut. You will probably have to take the brake assembly off to make room to remove and replace the studs.

Broke stud on front left side


Yes you can replace the broken wheel stud. The wheel studs are pressed into place, and a vise will work to press it out, and in. You will have to remove the wheel hub, and then use a deep well socket and a bolt or something smaller than the actual stud to remove it with a vise. To replace it, you will need to use the deep well socket on the thread side of the stud, and press the new one in with the vise.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck with your repair.
