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.

How do I replace all five lug nuts on front driver side wheel?


They are pressed in from the backside of the wheel hub that the studs stick out from. And not like needing a heavy press- once you get the old studs driven out (usually works with a hammer or small mallet), you can easily draw the new studs right into a snug fit by using the lug nuts, the new ones you just bought along with the 5 new studs, available at most any parts store.

See it's not the lug nuts that are broken, those nuts tighten the tire to the hub by the lug nut studs that the tire fits over. It is the studs themselves that are breaking off. This is common enough that parts stores carry replacements. A chevy dealership might have just your size in stock, if you don't mind paying extra high dealership charges, but it might not be that much for these rather inexpensive items. In a lot of cases, the studs can be removed from the hub as it sits, but there are cases where the hub must be removed from the vehicle for stud replacement. You can eyeball it and pretty much tell if the studs can be removed easily, after you take the wheel (tire) off. For any work on the vehicle, don't rely on the jack. Use blocks or jack-stands always.

How do I change front studs on mercury villager

Need to replace tire bolts


You should be able to remove the tire and wheel assembly and have the rotor exposed. Remove the two bolts that secure the brake caliber and gently slide the caliper assembly off the rotor. The rotor should then come off. The broken wheel studs can be punched out with a 5 pound hand sledge and a good drift pin. Just install the new wheel studs the same way from the back side.

How do I replace broken wheel studs on the Front Right wheel hub?


The studs will plainly hammer out. Hit the threaded part till it will wobble. A hole on the back side of the hub will be there to pull the broken stud out. Replace it with a new one and use the lug nut to tighten in in. Stacking washers will help very much doing this process. If none are available have the wheel installed to get the studs in tight

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
