How to replace front wheel studs on 2011 Kia Forte

If you can find just the studs and not have to buy the whole hub assembly, screw a lug nut on flush to the stud and drive it out with a hammer, make sure its in a position to have room on the back side. Put in new stud and with a few spacers tighten a lug nut to seat it.

I got a flat. when removing lug nuts 2 broke off completely. only have three bolts left to hold tire on

They sure can. Some parts stores like Pep Boys carry not only the original lug nuts (19 mm), but also carry the two studs you need. Remove the wheel assembly and with the two broken studs, take a hammer and on the backside, you'll see a hole to line up the back of the stud, and smack it out with a hammer. To install, if you have an air compressor, put each of the new two studs in one at a time an d buy a regular nut with about an inch of spacers over the stud and then zap it in with an impact wrench. Instead of spacers, I used a huge nut. For safety's sake, take care of the two broken studs as soon as possible, for if left too long, the wheel could fly off while driving. Even if you just remove the two broken studs, put the wheel back on and take it to any shop, they'll be able to zap the two new studs in.

Until Then,
I Remain,
Questionably Sane,

I am working in changing the wheel lug studs on a 99 plymouth voyager i have the hub off and the 5 wheel studs out what is the easyest way to get the studs back in

a spacer and a lug nut are handy to draw the new stud in. *********** such as myself just put the wheel on and use the lugs and the lug wrench. note the lugs are tapered on the business end so if you use them with a spacer, put them on backwards to draw the stud in..

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.
