How to replace a rear wheel stud on a chrysler t&c touring w/ ABS disc brakes


Unfortunately, removing the hub will damage the hub bearing and ABS tone ring as they are pressed together. There are aftermarket studs that are able to slip into the empty stud hole but you have to modify the back of the stud to clear the tone ring. Using a brass drift and a dead blow mallet, strike the end of the stud to push it back in till it clears the splined area. You may have to shorten the broken stud with a cutting tool to get it out past the tone ring. Insert the new stud into the hub and using a half inch washer and lug nut, tighten the lug nut with an impact wrench till it seats on the back side of the hub. The lug nut must be a standard lug nut--- no threaded cap style or chrome style will work as the lug nut is installed BACKWARDS to avoid damaging the chamfered end.

Trying to remove wheel stud rear do I have to remove disc if so do I remove large nut


remove the brake caliper and rotor to access the hub. now to remove bad wheel stud. knock old stud out with a hammer and punch or similar. when out, there should be enough room to slide new stud in from back of hub. With the new wheel stud in position through the hole, screw a couple of wheel bolts onto the stud. You'll use these to pull the new stud into place with a wrench or impact wrench. Simply tighten the bolts you put in place until the new wheel stud is fully seated. You can look on the back side of the hub to see when it is fully seated

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

How to replace lug nut studs 2002 chevrolet cavalier


take a hammer and a punch and pound it in, it will pop out the back of the hub assembly, then you get your new bolt, slide it through the back, same way the old one came out, throw a few washers on it and use the lug nut to draw it out till it catches, take the lug nut and washers back off, put the tire back on and use a little extra torque on that stud to insure it is all the way in place.

Good Luck!!

Wheel Stud


If you remove the wheel drum you can knock out the broken stud. It is pressed into the hub. Take the hub to aan auto parts store ( so you get the same size stud) and buy a new stud. put the stud into the hole in the hub. When you remount you remount the tire and tighten the lug nuts that will pull the new stud up tight in the hub.


Hope this helps

Good luck Loringh

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.

Wheel stud replacement


The first step in wheel stud replacement is to remove the old one. On almost every car, this is done by taping them out from the threaded side
.
Rotate the hub so that the back side (flat, on the back side of the hub) will not smash into something when you tap it out.
You will need a heavy hammer and safety glasses,

Next, while the glasses are on your face, use the hammer and whack on the threaded end of the old stud to drive it out the back side of the hub. If if was broken off real short, you might have to use a punch to transfer the hammer blows to what is left of the stud.

To install the new one, place it in the hole from the back side and use a standard lug nut on the new stud screwed on backwards (flat end toward the hub) and then use the car's lug wrench to tighten the nut and pull the stud into the hub. Make sure the grooves in the hub line up with the ridges in the new stud before trying to seat it.

Once the stud is fully seated, remove the lug nut. You are done.

I usually buy a standard lug nut that fits the replacement stud to do this procedure because most mag nuts are closed on the back end. It is cheap and will save lots of time.
