Question about 1996 Buick LeSabre
Replace all the studs on that wheel and it's twin on the other side. To do this, you have to turn the wheel to where the stud can come out from the inside, and use a hammer (or hammer and punch for the broken ones) to push them out the back of the wheel. You'll have to turn the wheel for each one. To put the new ones in, slide it into the hole that's been vacated, and use a lugnut to pull it in. Flip the lugnut so the the cone shaped end is out (upside down), and tighten it until it pulls the stud all the way on. Take the nut off, turn the hub, and do the next one in the same way. Make sure that you do the other side too, because it's been subjected to similar loads, and is likely ready to fail as well. Mount the tires, drive the car around a little, taking a few curves, but lightly. Stop, and retorque the lugnuts. Take it on another drive, but harder in the curves, and retorque the lugnuts. You are then finished. Just a note: whenever you retorque the lugnuts, loosen first, then tighten. This keeps you from overtightening them.
