Take it to a local shop and they will have to spend about a hour of labor etc. but they will be able to take off the hub. and use a press to remove the stripped broke off lug. then they will be able to press in a new one. It shouldn't take that long or be that much cost, this is something which does happen at shops quite often and most local repair shops will have the tools and new lugs for resetting.

1993 cadillac fleetwood i removed the bolt the pin and the c clip but shaft still wont come out. How do i remove it?

Be sure the bolts on the backing plate are removed and then put a slide hammer on the lug nuts and pull the bearing out, it is on the end of the shaft in the hub just behind the lug nuts.

How to change rear ball joints on 2002 dodge stratus

  1. Remove the Upper Control Arm
    • 1Disconnect the ground battery cable using a wrench.
    • Loosen the front wheel lugs located on the same side of the upper ball joint you need to replace. Use a lug wrench.
    • Raise that same front wheel off the ground using a floor jack and support the vehicle on a jack stand.
    • Finish removing the tire.
    • Take the cotter pin off the upper ball joint stud holding the steering knuckle arm. Use a pair of nose pliers.
    • Remove the castle nut from the upper ball joint stud using a wrench or ratchet, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Loosen the two bolts securing the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Use a wrench to hold the bolt head as you loosen the retaining nut with a ratchet and socket.
    • Pull the control-arm ball joint off the steering knuckle arm. You may need to use a Pitman arm puller to free the ball joint.
    • Finish removing the two bolts from the back of the upper control arm and lift the upper control arm off the vehicle.
    Install the New Upper Control Arm
    • Set the new upper control arm in place and install the two bolts and retaining nuts to secure the back of the upper control arm to the mounting bracket. Remember the bolt heads should point inward toward the shock absorber with the retaining nuts on the outside of the mounting bracket. Do not tighten the bolts yet.
    • 11Insert the control-arm ball joint on the steering knuckle arm and start the castle nut with your hand over the ball joint stud. Do not tighten the nut yet.
    • Tighten the two bolts on the mounting bracket to 67-foot lbs. (91 Nm) using a torque wrench. Hold the bolts with a backup wrench as you tighten the retaining nuts with the torque wrench.
    • Tighten the ball-joint castle nut to 45-foot lbs. (61 Nm) using the torque wrench, ratchet extension and deep socket.
    • Install a new cotter pin through the joint-ball stud hole using the nose pliers. If necessary, tighten the castle nut just a few degrees to clear the stud hole through one of the castle nut slots.
    • Mount the tire on the wheel assembly and install the wheel lugs using the lug wrench.
    • Lower the vehicle and finish tightening the wheel lugs.

The bolt broke off with the lug nut. how to take out the old bolt.

If it is like a VW Jetta lug bolt, soak it with PB Blaster.
Take a sharp center punch and a heavy ball pien hammer and drive the broken threaded portion the bolt in the direction it goes to remove the bolt. Hold the center punch at appor 60 degree angle to the plane of the drum or disk and hammer away.
If it is a splined threaded bolt soak it with PB Blaster and drive it out from the back side of the drum or disc. Use a pin punch or rod or old bolt slightly smaller then the splined broken off portion and hammer away.

Above proccdure saves my bacon countless times!
Good luck

Removing Lug bolt plate from car

Stop!!! The "round plate" that the wheel studs are mounted to is your hub assembly. To replace a broken stud, you simply need to use a hammer and a drift pin punch, and pound it backwards. You replace it in similar fashion: insert the new wheel stud in from the back side of the hub, and use the wheel lug nut to draw the new stud into the hub assembly.

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.
