SOURCE: REPLACING FRONT HUB STUDS FOR A 98 HONDA PRELUDE

To remove that hub you will destroy the bearing. Because you have to remove it with a slide hammer. It is not necessary to remove the hub to change the studs. Remove the caliper, caliper bridge and rotor. Using a hammer simply knock out the stud or studs you want to replace. Put new stud in and using a sleeve that has a bigger diameter than the stud (I use a big nut, like the one on the axle) put big nut over stud and screw lug nut on stud and tighten until head of stud is flush with hub. Re-install rotor, caliper bridge and caliper. Hope this helps.

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 do i get the rear hub off to replace the wheel studs


On some vehicles you may need to slightly pry the hub off. This can be done with a screw driver or the vehicle may have a lug wrench that came with the vehicle. If you are trying to replace the lug studs, then you will have to take the wheel off. Tap the broken stud out and replace it with the new one.

I need to replace the studs on the front drivers side rotor, three of the broke off when I was removing the wheel to replace the brakes. What does it require?


The studs are in the hub behind the rotor and it has to be removed because the studs have to be driven out with a hammer (and punch when broken) and driven back in. When you buy the new studs, you'll see what I mean.

Sheared front lug


First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

Lug bolt on front drivers side wheel is broken & needs replaced. I'm doing the job.


Safely jack and support the vehicle,remove wheel and tire assembly,with a punch and ball peen hammer (and safety glasses) or just a hammer,carefully knock broken stud out of the hub,it will fall out the back.Now take new stud and spin the hub until you find a spot where it will insert into the hole from the backside.Start the stud through the hole from the backside of the hub.Now at this point,you are going to PULL the stud into the hub,but the threads must be protected from galling.I use Anti Seize compound and some flat washers.Liberally coat the threads of the new stud with anti seize compound to protect the threads,stack some flat washers on the stud,install the lug nut,and tighten by hand.The stud will pull into the hub some.Remove lug nut,and stack more washers on the stud,and repeat the tightening process.Repeat process until stud is fully seated.Now remove anti seize compound with brake cleaner or equivalent solvent.Reinstall wheel and tire,and call this job completed.Remember to rate this solution.Good luck.
