Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Husband is trying to get bolt and nuts for front right wheel, is it complicated to put the bolts on?
It's somewhat involved. You have to remove the axel nut, remove the brake caliper and mount, and unbolt the wheel bearing housing flange, remove the wheel flange and wheel bearing. Next you must press out the the flange from the wheel bearing, and then you have access to press out the old bolts in the wheel flange. The new bolts must then be pressed back into the flange and then the flange back in the wheel bearing. I have seen some guys pound out the old bolt and then try to use the wheel nut to pull in the new one but the bolts never fully seat.

While its not super hard, its not overly easy either. this is the best way that i know of, that i have done in the past
1) Buy some new studs at the auto parts store. You'll want new nuts too, get
the OEM ones that have the washers (if you have the LX like me, the help
hold the hub cap on.
2) Rent a slide hammer from your local rental place if you don't have one.
3) Get the right size socket for the castle nut (25mm?)
4) Jack the car up, pull the wheel off.
5) Remove the two bolts holding the caliper on, use a box or something near
the wheel to set it on so you don't strain the hose.
6) Remove the castle nut and washer.
7) Hook up the slide hammer. Best to use some nuts you don't care about,
they'll get banged up.
8) Pound away to pull the rotor/bearing assembly off. Don't Give Up! It
takes a lot of pounding. The assembly is mated to the CV joint shaft in the
back, so that comes loose too.
The hard part is over!
9) Remove the rotor (4 bolts)
10) Tap out the bad stud
11) Tap in the new one
12) Put it back together.
Note. When you are using the slide hammer to get the assembly back in, you
have to hold the CV joint or your slide hammer action will be worthless. Get
it started part way then let the castle nut pull it in the rest of the way.
