As all or most wheel studs are pressed into hub,if you are taking them out with hub still on car,usually a good wack with hammer on stud works (with a second hammer behind hub to take up the shock,works great,as long as ure not re-using studs,if hubs are off of the car use a vise and hammer to remove and flip hub over to re-install new studs

Broken wheel stud right rear wheel with drum brakes on 2006 dodge caravan. Cant get the new stud to go in. I dont have enough room for the stud to go in. Do i need to remove the wheel bearing? What will be...

To remove the broken stud use a punch and drive it out with a hammer back towards the backing plate. BY turning the axle around you will find a position or you may have to remove a brake shoe to help with the installation of the new stud. When you have it in place use larger nuts and pull it into place with the stud nut.. You may not be able to simply put the stud straight in but may have to start a bit of an angle and turn the axle to allow the stud to feed in.

How to change broken wheel stud on 2007 ford escape

Some just pound out of the rotor. Take wheel off and then see if you cant drive out broken stud with a hammer. Usually this is how it's done and then you can drive a new one in the back side.

2000 Dodge Caravan....broken wheel studs...

Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck

Broken wheel studs

Hello there:
Normally these studs are pressed in by a machine
If you get a sledge hammer and a solid iron bar you can use this to get them off it takes a lot of doing but they will come off you may cioncider soaking the studs in penetrating oil for about 15 to 20 min before you attempt to get them off due to rust and build up.
If this does not work i would take the wheel to a shop that has a press ands have them get them off and have the new ones pressed in
Also You can heat the area around the stud with a torch and then use the sledge hammer ok ?
If you have the new studs and they are the right ones great, if not a local wheel or place that does rims should have them they cost around $2.00 a piece Ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Broken stud on wheel

The studs press out and in. Perhaps a hammer would work. Replacements studs can be purchased. Need to remove hub, of course.
