SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: two broken lug studs. 07 Nissan titan 4X4.

They should be replaceable w/o pulling the axle. Imagine a common nail; you have the shank of the nail with its point and the flat head on the other end. Your lug stud looks a little like that except the part that comes through the axle flange. It is a little larger than the threaded part and has "lateral lines" machined into it to grip inside the flange. Otherwise it would spin either way when you tried to tighten or remove it. To get the broken ones out, use a high quality flat end punch and a hammer to drive them backwards (toward the center of your differential) and eventually out of the flange. Look for the area that will give you the most room so they will not hit aything while they are backe out of the flange. The new studs can be installed in the reverse manner. When you get them just barely started through the flange, use your fingers to twist them back and forth to "feel" for the grooves where the old stud was seated. Once you get it barely started in the grooves, grease the threads, slip an old 1/2 inch drive socket over the new stud (make sure it doesn't fit tight) slip on a thick flat washer or 2--3 thin ones, turn your lug nut around backwards so the tapered end faces out and begin to tighten it. Go slow, make sure the new stud pulls through the flange evenly. Take the nut, washers and socket off every now and then and look at your progress. When the back side of the stud is seated on the back of the flange, you're finished. Now, always grease the studs. ALL OF THEM, EVERY WHEEL. The monkeys that put on tires these days use impact wrenches and if you just have to let them do it, grease will help you loosen the nut if you have to and it will help prevent future failures. A DRY stud and nut causes a twisting motion to take place in the body of the stud when its tightened. This leads to premature metal fatigue.

SOURCE: how to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town

I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

Are you saying that you are trying to replace the lug stud? The studs are pressed into the spindle that the rotor is mounted to. It is possible to pull the stud thru the spindle by tightening the lug nut, but this is not the proper way to do it. The proper way would be to remove the rotor and the spindle from the vehicle and press the lug stud into the spindle with a press. But I have pulled studs into the spindle when I was broken down on the side of the road with 5 broken studs. You just have to make sure you tighten the nuts until they do not tighten anymore, and check the nuts every day until they do not tighten anymore.

How can I fix cross threaded wheel screws?


Go to the auto parts store and borrow a nutcracker. Attach the nutcracker to the stuck nut. Tighten the nutcracker with a rachet wrench until the cracks completely in half. Now you can remove the wheel. Buy a new wheel stud and lug nut. Your lug nut will be pressed into a metal piece. Remove this piece and either 1) support the metal piece, put a good amount of penetrating oil on both sides of the bad lug nut and tap firmly with a large hammer. Let this sit for 5-10 minutes so that the oil can penetrate the stud. Now pound out the old lug nut with a large hammer. If it will not budge, then you can try heating the stud with a torch until it is quite hot and then hit the stud progressivly harder until it comes out. Now insert the new stud and pound it in until it stops moving. Last, before you reassemble, put the lug not on the new stud and tighten it real good to make sure that the stud is comletely seated. 2) the other option is to take the metal piece to the parts store and let them remove the stud and press a new stud 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.

The screw stud for the lug nut broke off in the lug nut. how do I get the remaining part of the screw stud out??


You take off wheel, (if it's a front wheel stud) you take a punch and punch the stud inward and remainder of stud will fall out. If it's rear, remove drum and do the same. Wheel studs are pressed into the hubs from factory, you can punch them out and pull new ones in using lug nut. Stop by a local parts store they should be able to get you the new stud and lug nut and give you more info.

I broke my lugs and studs on my 2002 ford excursion on the rear wheel


they are pressed in so you will have to get a punch and a hammer to beat them out. The new ones will have to be pressed in or beat in with a hammer. be careful not to get them in crooked.

Broken wheel stud on 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier RF.


Remove the wheel and the brake rotor, so that you can get a hand behind the hub flange where the stud is seated. You'll feel the head of the stud back there.

Use a socket extension or something similar, place it against the broken face of the stud, and hammer it out. It'll fall out behind the hub flange, and you can grab it and remove it (if it doesn't fall to the ground). Insert the new stud (available at a parts store for less than $3) into the flange from behind, and press it as hard as you can to get it seated in the splines. Then stack washers onto the stud on the outside, where you can see it, and tighten a lug nut onto the stud. Use your tire iron to tighten the lug nut on the stud - this will pull the stud into place. You may have to stop once or twice to add more washers onto the stud, but keep doing this until you can't tighten it any further and the length of the exposed section of the stud is even with the others. Then reinstall your rotor and caliper, put the wheel back on (torque it with a torque wrench), and you're done.
