Remove and replace lug bolts on my 2001odysey

Jason, im guessing you old ones are either broken or stripped. It will really depend on how long the bolts are.
You can take a punch and hammer, drive out the old ones. If the new ones aren't to long you can slip the new ones in from the back of the hub.
If you are able to slip them in, you can place one of the lug nuts on the stud ( backwards) and proceed to tighten the lug nut until the new bolt completely seats against the hub.
The reason you place the lug nuts backwards is so you don't damage the chamfer,tapered end of the lug nut.

Get back to me if you have any other questions, Robert

I had a wheel stud break off when trying to replace the brakes. I have the roters off and the old stud off. I had to saw the old stud off. No room to replace new stud. Can you suggest the best method in...

You were supposed to knock out the wheel studs, towards the back of the rotor and install the new stud through the back. You will have to knock out what's left of the one you sawed off in order to get the new one in.

Trying to remove wheel stud rear do I have to remove disc if so do I remove large nut

remove the brake caliper and rotor to access the hub. now to remove bad wheel stud. knock old stud out with a hammer and punch or similar. when out, there should be enough room to slide new stud in from back of hub. With the new wheel stud in position through the hole, screw a couple of wheel bolts onto the stud. You'll use these to pull the new stud into place with a wrench or impact wrench. Simply tighten the bolts you put in place until the new wheel stud is fully seated. You can look on the back side of the hub to see when it is fully seated

How do i replace broken rear wheel studs on 98 malibu

to start with, take wheel and brake hub off of car. now you can see the studs, use a punch to drive out old stud if need be. but support backside of axle plate so it does not break! when stud is out, put in new one from the backside of axle plate. to pull it in place, i use a wheel lug nut, turn it so flat side is down against plate. draw the stud in with a wrench or socket. if you can not get stud in, just remove one of the brake shoes for more room. have a good day !! they sell the studs at any auto parts store.
