If you broke 3 studs when you hit the curb then you can be sure that at the very least you have bent the rim, which will have to be replaced. At the worst you have bent an axle which will have to be replaced. You may have bent the rear end housing as well. This needs to go to a repair shop and be checked over to determine the extent of the problems. Don't put this off, it's very troubling that the studs broke again. Hope this helps.

How replace rear wheel stud on '90 corolla drum brakes


Remove the drum,turn where it has nothing blocking to come out.Don't hit stud directly with hammer,you will cause the end to get bigger and it will damaged the hole,if you have punch that is small in diameter than stud,use that with hammer,turn drum again so next stud it is free to come out.

My daughter has a 2006 nissan sentra about 6 months ago she hit a curb with the front passenger side tire we replaced the tire rim but its making a loud humming noise any advise would be greatly...


That loud humming noise you are hearing is the wheel bearing. After hitting the curb the bearing took a hit and became a little wobbly and over time the grease has seeped out and started causing the humming.So just replace the wheel bearing and anything else that might be loose or damaged like the tie rod and ball joints. if those issues are not corrected it might happen again down the road. good luck and glad to shed some light on your issue

I HAVE A 2006 PONTIAC MONTANA. I HAVE A CLICKING NOISE COMING FROM RIGHT FRONT WHEEL. ALSO VERY SLIGHT PULL TO THE RIGHT. ALSO WITH THE VAN ON THE GROUND IF I PUSH THE TIRE BACK AND FORTH THERE IS SOME...


Do you happen to have plastic rim covers? An auto mechanic suggested that these can rub or oscillate in just the right way to make you think you have a permanent rock stuck in your tire treads. It drove me nuts! But sure enough, I removed the rim coves and there was no noise at all. I ended up putting the same ones back on again with double-sided tape (double layered) along the inside rim of the covers and this stopped the noise for some time. Alas, one winter later, I'm hearing noises again. I've pulled them off again this week, but with my black rims underneath, the van looks like some undercover cop car!

Can not remove front tire, all lug nuts removed tire will not come off


Wheels will seize on from time to time. Whast usually works is to give the rim a sharp whack with a hammer between the studs. Do every space around the rim and do it 3-4 times. that will usually free them up. Or you can hit it from the inside. Spin the tire and hit it from the inside as it turns until it lets go. The last resort would be to heat it from the front between the wheel studs. You would need torches for that because propane won't get it hot enough. Hope this helps.

I can't get the wheels off of my car


all i can recommend here, is get a good penetrating oil...spray around the lug nuts holes and center hub of the wheel...have someone spin the wheel as you hit the the back of the TIRE not the rim, as hard as you can with a heavy hammer, and that should break them free...if not, then you can use heat around the same areas and just keep hitting again,...that usually works....i suppose if all else fails, you can turn the wheels one way, let it off the jack stands, and SLOWLY back up and that is usually enough to break free the corrosion and free up the rims...once moved back like only 8" then jack up car there...go from there...but please do be very very careful....

What caused all 5 lug studs to break? How do I replace them?


The 24" wheel caused the problem. The car is designed to have 15" wheels on it. The added weight and stress from the monstrous tires is too much for the little studs.
