Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Trying to find right size studs for front hub. I was given 610-254 studs, but they don't fit into the hub properly. I went to the dealership and they do not have the appropriate size stud. I would rather spend a couple dollars on studs than over $100 on hub. I've tried different sized studs from the parts store as they let me micr and peruse thru their stud box. I know replacing the hub isn't easy and I would require a torque wrench which adds more expense. Any help on the appropriate size would be appreciated.

Are they to tight or two loose? The stud will have to be pressed into the hub and will not easily fit into place.

I checked NAPA and they list a
BK 6411621, when I cross the dorman number you listed it came up with the same part #.

They make a stud installer tool which makes installing them a lot easier. You can do it without the tool but I would suggest picking up an extra lug nut and some washers that will fit over the stud.

How do I replace all five lug nuts on front driver side wheel?


They are pressed in from the backside of the wheel hub that the studs stick out from. And not like needing a heavy press- once you get the old studs driven out (usually works with a hammer or small mallet), you can easily draw the new studs right into a snug fit by using the lug nuts, the new ones you just bought along with the 5 new studs, available at most any parts store.

See it's not the lug nuts that are broken, those nuts tighten the tire to the hub by the lug nut studs that the tire fits over. It is the studs themselves that are breaking off. This is common enough that parts stores carry replacements. A chevy dealership might have just your size in stock, if you don't mind paying extra high dealership charges, but it might not be that much for these rather inexpensive items. In a lot of cases, the studs can be removed from the hub as it sits, but there are cases where the hub must be removed from the vehicle for stud replacement. You can eyeball it and pretty much tell if the studs can be removed easily, after you take the wheel (tire) off. For any work on the vehicle, don't rely on the jack. Use blocks or jack-stands always.

Hoe to replace wheel lugs


    • 1 Purchase a new stud and nut. Inspect the others on the same wheel for signs of wear if you don't know when the stud first received damage. Get more if necessary so you don't have to tear the wheel apart again. If you don't know the size, take the stud to the store with you once you remove it.
    • 2 Look in the trunk for the jack. You need to get blocks before you jack up the Galant. Block the wheel diagonal to your jack placement. Jack the edge up enough to remove the tire.
    • 3 Take off the tire, then the calipers and the rotor in order to access the hub in the front. If the rear brakes are drum, take off the drum. If they're disc, use the same process as you would in the front.
    • 4 Line the stud up with an opening in the back so there is room to both remove and replace it. You may need to remove the hub and insert it in the vise for this step if you have no clearance.
    • 5 Hit the end of the stud with a mallet to drive it through the hub and out the back. You can insert the new stud in as far as you can by hand.
    • 6 Thread two wheel bolts onto the stud. As you tighten down the bolts, it pulls the stud through the hole. Watch in the back and when you see the stud seat against the back of the hub, stop.
    • 7 Put all the parts back onto the vehicle wheel in the order that you removed them. Tighten the replaced the stud in your Galant.

How do u fix a rear stud on a 1999 Nissan Maxima


You will need to remove the Rear Wheel, Brake Caliper, and Rotor to replace the Stud. Once those are removed, take a Hammer and hit the Wheel Stud from the front to drive the Stud out through the back of the Wheel Hub. Once the Stud is out, take the new Stud and insert it in the Hub from the back. You will need to get a Open Ended Nut with the proper thread size as the Stud and thread it on the Stud, and tighten the Nut till the Stud comes all the way through the hole and the end of the Stud is flush with the back of the Hub. Remove the Nut and you can now put everything back together.

REPLACING FRONT HUB STUDS FOR A 98 HONDA PRELUDE


To remove that hub you will destroy the bearing. Because you have to remove it with a slide hammer. It is not necessary to remove the hub to change the studs. Remove the caliper, caliper bridge and rotor. Using a hammer simply knock out the stud or studs you want to replace. Put new stud in and using a sleeve that has a bigger diameter than the stud (I use a big nut, like the one on the axle) put big nut over stud and screw lug nut on stud and tighten until head of stud is flush with hub. Re-install rotor, caliper bridge and caliper. Hope this helps.

Need to know how to remove broken studs?


Your going to have to remove the hub bearing unit to replace the studs.
The studs are pressed fit, so your going to have to press it out backwards. Don't try to hamer the studs out, you may damage the Hub bearing and you might as well change the whole hub if that's the case.
Once you have the hub removed press fit the studs out backward and if you don't have a press fit, you could get away with a clamp and lot's of washer and a pipe for leverage. 
To install the new studs, just follow in revers and press fit the new ones in place, it should take about 30 min to an hour to do. But take your time if you have not don this before.
Good luck and hope this helps, and if your have abs, make sure you line up your sensor before putting the wheels back on.

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
