Re: lug nut thread broke off? how do i replace?
Never done this before, but here is some stuff I found. I hope it helps. Don't shortchange yourself by trying to save a few bucks at the expense of safety. I hope that this helps. Yu could just buy a used wheel from a wricking yard or online. There are some great aftermarket cmpanies that make great wheels. I got one for a Volvo and a Pontica G-6 and they were under $200.00. Much less than the dealer. I hope this helps.

You will need a special tool to press the lug studs in and out of the flange, or you can follow these directions;
First you will have to pound the broken lug stud(s) out of the wheel hub/flange, use a punch or a drift that is a little smaller in diameter than the lug stud, and be sure that you do not pound on the flange itself, then you will need a lug nut and about a half an inch thick of flat washers.
1. Insert the new lug stud through the wheel hub from behind so that the threaded end is facing out towards you and then put some grease on the threads.
2. Then slip the flat washers onto the lug stud followed by the lug nut, and run the lug nut down backwards with the flat end of the lug nut towards the flat washers to take up the slack and use plenty of grease on the threads.
3. Then using a breaker bar tighten the lug nut until it pulls the lug stud through the wheel hub and it is flush with the wheel hub.
Be sure that the amount of flat washers used will make up for any non-threaded part of the lug stud that might stick out past the wheel hub preventing the lug nut from pulling the lug stud all the way through the wheel hub, and basically you do not want the lug nut to run out of threads before it can pull the lug stud flush with the wheel hub.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.
How to Replace Wheel Lug Nuts (DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 1.5 hours)
Parts: 1. Lug Nut
Tools: 1. Floor Jack 2. Jack Stand Set 3. Ball Peen Hammer 4. Tire Iron 5. Socket Set
Steps: Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a solid level surface to ensure that it does not roll or lean when raised. o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
Step 2 Break the lug nuts loose but do not remove. Using a floor jack, raise up the front of the vehicle. o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.
Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working. o Tip: The pinch welds or the frame rails are the two best locations for vehicle support.
Step 4 Remove the lugs nuts. Inspect the threads on the wheel studs.
Step 5 Install the new lug nuts by hand making sure they thread properly.
Step 6 Tighten each lug nut in a star pattern. Lower the vehicle to the ground and torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer’s specifications. o Tip: Refer to the owner's manual for the exact location on the vehicle.
Step 7 Road test the vehicle to verify lug nut repair.
I really hope help with this (remember comment and rated this post).
Purchase tie rod ends that are specific to your Honda model and year, for tie rod ends vary from model year to model year. The tie rod ends often come with nuts and cotter pins (glorified bobby pins).
Loosen the lug nuts on the front tires, but don't remove them. Jack up your vehicle, then support it securely on jack stands. Remove the tires.
Use a wrench or piers to loosen the outer tie rod's locking nut, but do so by only 1/8th of a turn. Mark the tie rod end's position on the threaded portion of the tie rod with paint or a marker.
Take out the cotter pin or key and use a wrench or pliers to loosen and remove the castellated nut from the outer tie rod end's spindle.
Separate the tie rod and the steering knuckle with a tie rod puller.
Grasp the tie rod with a wrench while you screw off the tie rod end. Make sure you keep track of the number of turns it takes to remove it, and write that number down. It'll help you when you install the replacement tie rod end.
Replace the Tie Rod End
Put a coat of anti-seize compound on the threaded portion of the tie rod end, and screw on the lock nut for the tie rod end.
Screw on the tie rod end, making sure you do it in the same number of turns as it took to remove the original tie rod end (see Section One, Step 6).
Slip the tapered end of the tie rod end into the steering knuckle and tighten the castellated nut to 29 to 35 foot pounds. If your tie rod end doesn't come with a castellated nut, tighten that nut to 32 foot pounds.
Install the new cotter pin and tighten the tie rod end's lock nut. Repeat Sections 1 and 2 for the other tie rod end.
Reinstall the tires, tighten the lug nuts and get the Honda aligned.
Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each. Here are the steps for the rear replacement... Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.
IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)
When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete. Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...
The lugs must be pounded out with a heavy mallet, the new ones can be put back in as much as possible, make sure they are straight, and then use your lug wrench to tighten on the lug nut and keep turning until the lug is fully seated.
well usually they are pressed in and if they break off.you have to beat them out or take it in to les schwab or any tire company and they wiil put a new one in for you and it is preety cheap you can drive it down there it is not going to hurt anything long as the others are tight..
