SOURCE: What size and thread are the exhaust manifold studs and nuts for a 2000 toyota camry?

Earlier toyotas (likely, yours too) used 8mm studs, pitch was 1.25, not sure of length. M8-1.25 X ??. I tried to get help from toyota parts place for size of intake manifold bolts and studs-they couldn't help, because parts list only showed part number, not the size. And of course they had none in stock.

I think you mean the wheel studs? They are pressed in.You need to remove the wheel,brake caliper and rotor(or drum) and pound the stud out.Grease the new stud,and use HAND TOOLS with a lug nut and a washer(buy a plain open lug nut with one flat side to install it).I have tried using an impact gun to crank 'em in,but usually regret it-the threads strip or the stud breaks.Make sure to keep tightening until the head of the stud sits flush to the back of the flange.If you have difficulty tightening the stud because the axle keeps turning,have someone hold the brake pedal for you.

My 91 Honda Accord EX wagon has a broken lug on front driver side. How do i fix it, & will it be ok in the meantime with the three lug nuts on tight?

It is not recommended to drive it like that. It's not too bad to replace but it depends on your level of mechanical skill, You need to remove the brake caliper and disc and then you can simply knock the remains of the broken stud out with a hammer and punch, To fit the new one insert the stud and then put a large nut over the thread, then fit the lug nut and tighten it to pull the stud into the hub, then simply remove the lug nut and put it all back together.

We have a 2005 chevy uplander (AWD) with a broken lug nut stud on a rear tire. Looks like we have to get into the reare axle hub. How difficult is this? thanks

I have never done one on this vehicle but have replaced many on all other cars over the years, this is what i experienced, the stud will pound out with a good 2-3 lb. hammer, and the new stud and nut will get pulled back through the empty hole by use of a strong impact wrench...start the stud by hand try to pull it as much as you can through the splined hole in the axle flange, install the new nut backwards on the stud screw it down as far as you can then with the 1/2' drive impact wrench on full throttle tighten the lug doing this you are pulling the stud through the void hole.
Please remeber to use a small amount of axle grease on the new stud and hole prior to installing the replacement stud and nut.
You prbably have to remove the disc brake caliper and brake pads along with the rear disc brake rotor to gain access to the stud, there should be an access hole also allowing you to get behind the axle flange for removal and installation.
Hope this works.
Happy Motoring!!

How to replace rear wheel stud?

Not as difficult as it seems...Drive stud through with a sledge, put new stud in, stack washers on threaded end (at least 3/4" and lube them) put the wheel lug (use a standard one turned around backwards, not the chrome one, or a nut of the correct thread style) Tighten it until the lug is seated properly in the flange. To do this, you need to remove the caliper and rotor if you have disc brakes in rear.On drum brakes, remove the drum and turn the axle to a spot where the lug won't hit anything on it's way out. Instructions for that can be found in either chiltons or haynes manuals (about $20).

How to remove bolt and loge nut from car wheel that is striped

If you have a stripped lug nut on your vechicle, the best thing is to take the vehicle to a tire shop and have them remove the nut. You can drive missing one nut tempoarily. They have universal tools for removing wheel locks and this will work for this application. You will need a new nut.
If you have a stripped wheel stud, these are available at your local parts store. To remove the stud you will need a small sledge hammer. when the wheel and brake drum/rotor is off, the stud should be exposed. There should be a hole in the backing plate of the axle and this is where the stud needs to be lined up with. Hammer the stud out through the hole. Next, replace with the new stud. To seat the stud on the splined area you need to press the stud into place. Using a number of flat wahers, place them on the threaded part of the stud until only 5 threads are showing. Turn on the new nut and tighten the nut until the stud is pulled into place. You may need to remove the nut and add more washers to seat the stud. Hope this helps.

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart

Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

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.

Broken/stripped rear lugs on pacifica that needs to be replaced

From Experience trying to clean the threads up usually results in just stripping the stud the rest of the way. Depending on how the car is set up (i.e. rear disc or rear drum brakes) replaceing the lug studs is fairly straight forward. All you need to do is remove the tire, remove either the brake drum or disc, and determine if you have room for removal and reinsertion of a new stud. If not determine what has to be removed to give you that room. Then comes the fun part. Take about a 2-3lb. hammer and knock the old one out. Yes, they just knock out. Then to instal the new one just set it in the hub where the old one came out, place a few washers that will fit over the knurled part at the base on the stud and the new lug nut and tighten it down til the back side if flat against the hub. Then just reinstall previously removed parts and you are done.
