Question about 1998 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Nissan Altima with a broken stud on the passenger side front rotor. I have the brake calliper off and the center nut on the rotor off. I used a claw puller to try and remove the rotor. The puller pushed the spine back through the rotor, stopping with a small amount of the spline threads still protuding from the rotor shaft. It will go no further. How do I get the rotor off so I can replace the broken stud??

Chances are your rotor is rusted to the drive axle. Another thing is there might be 4-bolts securing the rotor to the hub. Unless you get those bolts off, the roror won't come off. If you have Haynes manual, it is a good guide because you see things in detail.

I have a 83 Bronco 351w I am doing the brakes and the passenger side rotor needs to be replaced can someone walk me through this thanks


Personally I would replace both rotors to prevent a future brake imbalance.

* chock rear wheels, raise front of vehicle and place on stands.

* remove wheels, remove brake calliper and bracket assemblies.

* remove bearing hubs from axles, via removal of bearing adjustment nut

*remove hub seals, clean and inspect bearings, repack with HT bearing grease.

* the brake rotor bolts to the rear of the hub, you will have to remove and replace rotor to hubs, make sure all bolts are thread locked with loctite 263 and tensioned to spec.

* pack hub with grease, install seals, fitt hub assembly and adjust wheel bearing preload, install new split pins.

* fitt brake calliper and brackets, fit new brake pads,

* fitt wheels lower vehicle, test brake for function

Hope this helps..

How to replace a lugnut stud on a 85 nissan pickup


Depending on if its a rear axel or a front rotor how you're going to do it is different. The method is still the same though.

The studs just have a serrated edge right under the head that holds them in place. They just need to be smacked out with a sledge hammer and the new stud came be pulled back in with a good lug nut and some washers that the studs will fit through without binding.

For instance,
A front rotor would need to be pulled off the vehicle. Looking at the back side you can see the head of the stud. Place the rotor on a firm surface and hit the stud from the side that is broken to drive it out through the back side.
Put the new stud in from the back side. Try to turn it to where it feels like the grooves (serated area)on the stud are locked into the grooves on the rotor. Then put some large washers over the threads (so if there is a shoulder on the stud that comes through the nut will not bottom on it). Put the nut on and tighten it do bring the stud through.

I have abroken wheel stud on a 2003 Nissan Sentra, how do remove the hub?


did u know u should be able to pound out the stud and replace it?

anyway.. remove tire, remove brake calliper, remove rotor, remove the cap in the middle of the wheel bearing (hub) and remove the big nut.

there is 3 or 4 bolts behind the hub that hold the wheel bearing (hub) on, remove those. Get a hammer and a chisel and separate the wheel bearing from the rest of the housing.

I need to replace the studs on the front drivers side rotor, three of the broke off when I was removing the wheel to replace the brakes. What does it require?


The studs are in the hub behind the rotor and it has to be removed because the studs have to be driven out with a hammer (and punch when broken) and driven back in. When you buy the new studs, you'll see what I mean.

Two left side front wheel studs nuts broken.


They are replaceable.
You can knock the broken studs out with a point chisel (wear safety glasses). Take the pieces and nut to an auto parts store in order to get the same nut size (don't want to use two tire tools/wrenches).

How to remove broken lug on 98 Elantra. Can't get the disc off that lugs press into. Already have removed 4 bolts/nuts that secure this disc to the brake rotor. Also have already removed large castle nut...


As far as I can determine, your Elantra has standard rear disc brakes.
The lugs should be attached to the hub, which is attached to the axle. The Disc or Rotor (they're one and the same) slip onto the hub. Oftentimes the disc will seize on the hub from rust. You need to spray the center hole, where the disc goes over the hub, with spray penetrating oil. Also spray the lug stud holes. Then take a (dead blow )hammer and hit the disc around its perimeter. It should then come loose.
The broken stud can then be taken out by hitting the front of the stud with a hammer. You may want to spray the back of the stud where it seats on the hub before taking the hammer to it. Place the new stud through the rear and make sure it's seated correctly.
Clean all parts with brake parts cleaner. The lug studs should not have any lubrication on them.
You have to re-set that "large castle nut" that was removed to its proper Preload Torque. I do not know that spec, but you need to find it out, and how it's done.
Suggest you purchase a Repair Manual for your vehicle(s). It really is the best tool you can get.

Have broken studs on the front passenger side and need to know how to replace.


I assume that you are referring to the wheel studs and if so you will have to remove the wheel, the brake caliper, the brake caliper stand and the brake rotor. Drive the old stud out with a hammer. Make sure you purchase new lug nuts with the studs. If they are the acorn style, buy one that is not to help with installation. Slide the new stud in the hole from the rear of the flange, install some washers for clearance of the stud shoulder. Install the non acorn style lug nut on the stud backwards. Using a impact gun, pull the stud through. Remove the backwards lug nut and washers.

How do you remove the front passenger hub on a 98 escort. I wrenched on the nut, but it won't loosen


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Front Brakes
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Unfasten the disc brake caliper retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the disc brake caliper and secure the caliper aside with mechanic's wire. Do not disconnect the brake hose.
  5. Pull the brake rotor from the hub.
  6. Inspect the rotor and refinish or replace, as necessary. If refinishing, the minimum thickness rotor thickness is stamped on the brake rotor.
  7. To install:
  8. Place the brake rotor to the hub. Make sure the mating surfaces are free of rust which may prevent the brake rotor from seating properly.
  9. Remove the mechanic's wire and position the brake caliper.
  10. Install the brake caliper retaining bolts to specification.
  11. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  12. Lower the vehicle.
  13. Pump the brake pedal several times to position the brake pads before moving the vehicle.
  14. Road test the vehicle and check the brake system for proper operation.

It sounds like your hub/rotor is froze on....you'll need to apply some penetrant in the lug stud areas as wells as the area where the rotor mates to the axle hub.

It may be the bearing. located underneath the wheel rotor on the wheel axle. Lift up the car and remove the wheel, brake pads and rotor. remove the rotor and turn the nut that holds to axle in place by removing a small pin. (if there is one) and turning counter clockwise. you will see the bearing under the rotor. Check for missing bearings , dirty oil debris, etc. If it has any of this , replace with new bearing. The exact way you removed it. Do not overtighten the nut. This will cause the bearing to overheat. just tighten enough for the bearing to fit snug with no movement.Make sure you grease up the new bearing good.

Removing the front brake rotor on a 1998 Mazda Protege


You do not have to remove the big center nut. You might have to tap on it with a hammer to get it off. If there is anything solid near it to pry against (don't pry against the dust shield) try that too. If none of this helps you can try heating it near the center. You should be able to get it off without heating it but it is possible that that is what you will have to do.
