Question about Ford ZX2

1 Answer

2 of the 4 rear whell studs broke on my zx2 because the lug nuts worked loose. ford dealer does not stock replacement studs. I had to buy them at local auto parts store. However the number of splines on the new studs do not match the old studs. Is that a problem? the tech at the auto shop said the new splines would cut their own seats. That does not sound correct as the steel of the spindle would have to be very soft. Help.

The screw stud for the lug nut broke off in the lug nut. how do I get the remaining part of the screw stud out??


You take off wheel, (if it's a front wheel stud) you take a punch and punch the stud inward and remainder of stud will fall out. If it's rear, remove drum and do the same. Wheel studs are pressed into the hubs from factory, you can punch them out and pull new ones in using lug nut. Stop by a local parts store they should be able to get you the new stud and lug nut and give you more info.

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.

I broke my lugs and studs on my 2002 ford excursion on the rear wheel


they are pressed in so you will have to get a punch and a hammer to beat them out. The new ones will have to be pressed in or beat in with a hammer. be careful not to get them in crooked.

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart


Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

I'am not sure what you are calling jam nuts but if you are talking about the spring loaded washers on the lug studs that are pressed against the drum, they are not needed.

pick up new wheel studs. using a punch hammer out the old broken off studs. push in the new studs from the back side grease the threads put your lug nut on backwards and tighten up this will pull the stud into place. as long as your wheel isnt damaged or new wheel . use a torque wrench and torque the lug nuts drive a mile or so and torque again and then after 50 miles.
