Put the lug studs in the freezer over night and if possible heat the rotar disk with a torche go to a local automotive place they make a hand held press to pull the studs in.

My 91 Honda Accord EX wagon has a broken lug on front driver side. How do i fix it, & will it be ok in the meantime with the three lug nuts on tight?


It is not recommended to drive it like that. It's not too bad to replace but it depends on your level of mechanical skill, You need to remove the brake caliper and disc and then you can simply knock the remains of the broken stud out with a hammer and punch, To fit the new one insert the stud and then put a large nut over the thread, then fit the lug nut and tighten it to pull the stud into the hub, then simply remove the lug nut and put it all back together.

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.

We broke the lugs on our toyota echo how do we


Lugs?. I guess are the wheel studs(Im in australia)
First see if toyota sells the lugs separately, if yes you can use a punch to remove the last broken bit, the new ones are installed by packing with washers and using the wheel nut to pull them back into place.
If you cant buy lugs separately, you will need a new hub from the dismantlers

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town


I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

Half right...pound out, use a stack of washers and put nut on backwards and draw stud in. Oil on washers and stud threads helps.

Studs have to be hammered out through the back of the hub, and the new ones have to be hammered in.
