You require "lug studs" to be able to install a lug nut to secure the tire.

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, 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 remove brake rotor


  1. Loosen but do not remove lug nuts on wheel
  2. Jack vehicle up (make sure you are on level ground and the vehicle is stable)
  3. Locate and remove the bolts that hold the caliper.(the caliper has a rubber brakeline attached to it)
  4. Remove caliper leaving rubber brake hose attached (may be necessary to pry and do not let the caliper hang by that hose)
Now it gets tricky because I dont know what kind of car it is. Some cars you can just slide the rotor off from this point. Others you have to remove a screw or bolt in the rotor to remove, some you have to take the bust cap off and remove nut. It really varies by type of vehicle.

I am working on a 93 prelude trying to pull front roters to replace broken lug nuts. but when try to losen 1 1/2 nut cannot get lose and donnot see any locking mechnizm to stop it from spinning off ....


I do not know for sure about the prelude but once you take the lug nuts off of most vehicles, the only thing holding the rotors on is the brake pads. Usually, you can remove a couple of bolts from the back of the calipers, maybe just one and the calipers swing on a hings away from the rotors. One swift kick to the rotor will usually free it up. Who needs a rubber mallet.

Broken lug nut on right front wheel. Can you buy just one lug bolt and nut. the threads are stripped and they both need to be replaced. what is the procedure to replace the bolt?


hi,
remove the rotor with the lugs in it - take it to NAPA - they will remove the old one and replace it with a new lug bolt/nut combo for the price of the parts. 28ab2be.jpg

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.

I have a 95 Chevy suburban and I am trying to change the rotor and can not get it off. The lugs are attached to the rotor and not sure what I should do


Removing: Loosen lug nuts (7/8") and spindle nut (36mm). Lift truck. Remove lug nuts, spindle nut, and wheel. Remove 2 bolts (3/8" allen) holding calipers on. Hold the calipers up with a bungee cord. I attached it to the sheet metal of the fender. Remove 4 bolts (15mm) from rear of hubs. Once these bolts are removed you can move the shield that is in-between the hub and the axle(I think). You are moving it to get access to the allen bolt that holds the ABS sensor on. Once you move the shield then you can look through the top of the rotor through the slots and see the sensor line and bolt. I don't remember what size allen this one took. You do need a long allen wrench though. Disconnect sensing line from hub. Now the rotor is ready to come off. I had to use a pry bar to remove this gently working each side until it popped off. Once the rotor is removed, you need to hammer out the lug bolts. Then you have to tap the rotor away from the hub. This took a little work. Then check each of the lug bolts by screwing the lug nuts on them. They should go all the way down by hand. If they don't - go buy new bolts $2 a piece. Installing: Position new rotor on hub. Get some dry ice from your local grocery store and freeze the bolts for about 10 minutes. Pull one bolt out of the ice at a time and install on the rotor and tighten the bolt with the lug nut. I put the nuts on upside down and used a 7/8" wrench and mallet to tap on the wrench to get these as tight as possible. You also have to tap on the head of the bolt and repeat the wrench tapping. Do this for each bolt pulling one out of the ice at a time. You do not have to get the rotor and hub completely together but get it as close together as possible. Once all of the lug bolts are in it is time to put the rotor on the truck. Ensure the shield is on the spindle and install the rotor, again, this takes some work. Once the rotor is on, connect the ABS sensing line. Line up the shield and install 4 bolts to rear of hub. You can align these by moving the hub, not the rotor. Install the caliper, remember to put brake grease on these 2 bolts. You may have to compress the caliper slightly. To do this remove the brake pad that has the circular part of the caliper touching it. Open the brake fill cap on the master cylinder. Use a C-clamp to compress the circular part. Reinstall the brake pad and brake fill cap. Install the caliper. Install the wheel and tighten lug nuts. I used a cheater bar on my tire iron and ensured that the lug bolts were flush with the head of the lug nuts. Then I removed the wheel to verify that the gap between the rotor and the hub was gone. Reinstall wheel, tighten lug nuts, and tighten spindle nut. Once both brakes have been replaced, start up the truck and pump the brakes several times till you feel some tension when pressing them.

How to remove broken lug on 98 Elantra. Can't get the disc off that lugs press into. Already have removed 4 bolts/nuts that secure this disc to the brake rotor. Also have already removed large castle nut...


As far as I can determine, your Elantra has standard rear disc brakes.
The lugs should be attached to the hub, which is attached to the axle. The Disc or Rotor (they're one and the same) slip onto the hub. Oftentimes the disc will seize on the hub from rust. You need to spray the center hole, where the disc goes over the hub, with spray penetrating oil. Also spray the lug stud holes. Then take a (dead blow )hammer and hit the disc around its perimeter. It should then come loose.
The broken stud can then be taken out by hitting the front of the stud with a hammer. You may want to spray the back of the stud where it seats on the hub before taking the hammer to it. Place the new stud through the rear and make sure it's seated correctly.
Clean all parts with brake parts cleaner. The lug studs should not have any lubrication on them.
You have to re-set that "large castle nut" that was removed to its proper Preload Torque. I do not know that spec, but you need to find it out, and how it's done.
Suggest you purchase a Repair Manual for your vehicle(s). It really is the best tool you can get.

My son's Daewoo Lanos has two stripped lug bolts on one


you can get replacement bolts and nuts at any auto parts store. just tell them what kind of car it is, and theyll match you up with the right ones. be sure to replace the studs and the nuts. theyre fairly inexpensive. to replace them, you remove thebrake drum or rotor, and simply use a hammer to pound them out backwards. or, they may be mounted on the cars spindle, rather then the rotor or drum. after you have them out, slip the new one into the hole. they must be pressed in, so its not gonna go in all the way. the easiest way to do it is to set it in the hole, put the nut on the threaded end, and just tighten up the nut. that will pull the stud all the way through the hole. then simply reinstall anything you removed from the car, and make sure there is a good amount of torque used to tighten the wheel down.
