you need to remove the tyre again, If it is the front wheel, take the rotor assembly off and punch the wheel stud out.

If it is the back whell it is a bit more difficult.

But the wheel stud can be removed and a new one put in place.

Hope this helps

Hi! You will need to replace the stud for sure. Buy a new one on your local auto supply and remove the old stud. YOu can perform this by taking off the wheels, it can be pull out from the back. Hope this helps and have a good one!

IF it broke off while tightening , drill a hole in the center and use a easy out tool to remove it . if it broke off while trying to remove it the tool will likely not work as it is seized , you will have to use a drill for that size thread and tap in a new thread , best left to a pro.

Broken stud on left front wheel

Remove: wheel, brake caliper & rotor. Drive out the remaining stub with a hammer and punch. Insert a new stud and pull it into place by tightening the lug nut. Before running out of threads, remove the nut, insert a stack of washers or a large nut which slips over the threads without contacting them, tighten the lug nut to seat the stud.

Broken Lugs For a Chevrolet Trailblazer

I might try a different shop. I have never heard of a broken Stud nut making any noise I hope they diagnosed a problem with the noise. Also in-experinced tire tech's over tighten lugs with their impact wrench and snap broken studs

Mechanics keep on breaking my lug nuts,Why?

Over tightening. They are probably using an impact wrench to tight the lugs because its the fastest way. Its not the right way though.
Here is what happens. When the nuts are tightened, the studs will stretch. This tension holds the wheels on to the rim. If you over tighten the studs you can damage them and they could fail. The best approach is to use an impact wrench to snug up the nuts. Then go back with a torque wrench and tighten to the manufacturer specifications.(lug nut torque for your vehicle is 110 ft-lbs ) Next time you are having your tires rotated or changed, make sure the mechanic uses a torque wrench and the correct torque.

Lug bolt on front drivers side wheel is broken & needs replaced. I'm doing the job.

Safely jack and support the vehicle,remove wheel and tire assembly,with a punch and ball peen hammer (and safety glasses) or just a hammer,carefully knock broken stud out of the hub,it will fall out the back.Now take new stud and spin the hub until you find a spot where it will insert into the hole from the backside.Start the stud through the hole from the backside of the hub.Now at this point,you are going to PULL the stud into the hub,but the threads must be protected from galling.I use Anti Seize compound and some flat washers.Liberally coat the threads of the new stud with anti seize compound to protect the threads,stack some flat washers on the stud,install the lug nut,and tighten by hand.The stud will pull into the hub some.Remove lug nut,and stack more washers on the stud,and repeat the tightening process.Repeat process until stud is fully seated.Now remove anti seize compound with brake cleaner or equivalent solvent.Reinstall wheel and tire,and call this job completed.Remember to rate this solution.Good luck.
