The rotor may still be good but the bearing assembly will need to be changed it is not a very complicated job but if you are a laymen it may prove too difficult go to www.autozone.com and use the repair guides

The front wheel bearing is an assy. That has the new studs on it. You probably want to change the rotor while it is off and the pads. Also have a good look at you drive axle, if the boots are broken odds are its bad
What caused the wheel to come off? Did it lock up? Have a look at the brake caliper and make sure it isnt hanging up. Lee

When my car lugs down it makes all kinds of shaking and sounds like its falling apart, its an automatic trans. what could be the cause of this?


This can be caused by several different things, such as: A bad axle shaft, the differential or transaxle bearings. The ring and pinion drive, wheel bearings etc. Any one of these will cause shaking and noise on deceleration. Check transaxle fluid level, raise vehicle front end and check for slop in the wheel bearings and check for noise while spinning the tire. The wheel bearings will often make noise when lugging down as you put it due to the weight shift to the front wheels. This also applies to the axle shafts and CV joints and the differential.

you may have a bit of corrosion on the wheel making it stick to the hub. put the lug nuts back on but leave them 2 turns loose. then lower the car to the ground. turn the wheel left and right to help break it loose. Raise car back up and remove the lug nuts.

I have sheared a front wheel lug on my 1995 landcruiser Amazon. Friends had a puncture and didn,t tighten wheel nuts properly on spare. How do I replace.


The lug nuts are press fitted in the rotor. You should be able to hit the bolt with a hammer(or hammer and punch if the bolt is sheered flush with the rotor) and it should come out.

The car makes a squeaking noise when driving


Beyond the issues of dry wheel bearings and CV joints, various points in the suspension (front and rear) have rubber pivot points that get squeaky when moved. Try pushing down on each corner of the car to try to locate the area of the noise. Is it worse on rough roads or smooth? Make sure that all of the lug nuts on the wheels are tight. Lastly, doors, hood, and trunk lid can squeak if they move while driving. Silicon spray lubricant works on all rubber surfaces. Wheel bearing grease works on wheel bearings and CV joints--look for wear and replace any damaged part.

Sheared front lug


First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

Instructions to replace sheared off lugs / studs - 1997 Chevy


You can remove old lug by driving it out with a decent sized hammer. To re-install, push new one into flange from backside and stack washers on wheel side, leaving enough room for the lug nut to go on. (backwards...flat side in) Tighten the nut, pulling the lug into the flange, till it is flush (like the unbroken ones) I suggest that you put some lube on lug threads to prevent binding while doing this.

Remove the front disc rotor


The rotor and hub assembly are held together by the studs,you must first remove the 4-wheel drive hub assembly,then the wheel bearing nuts,and pull the hub and rotor off as a unit. Next lay it(back down) on a piece of wood, using a drift punch drive the studs out. Turn it over ,lay it(face down) on a block of wood, line the new stud splines up with the grooves in the hub and drive them in with the punch and reassemble. A set of dentist style picks will be helpful with the clip in the 4wd hub and a 4 lug 4wd nut wrench will be needed.

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.
