    Thanks, yeah I've done wheel studs quite a few times,but they are pass through. The exhaust manifold studs are welded in the block, I didn't know how you would replace and fasten unless you cut threads after getting broken out

Wheel studs? They should drive out the back with a small sledge. Get replacement struds at a auto parts supply near you ... I think if it were me ... I would go to the auto parts place first and get the new parts before I took the car apart. I think I'd be replacing all the studs on that wheel. My auto parts place has guys at the counter that know everything ... I would be asking for tips on removing the studs. They may not have done it ... but someone has told them and they can tell you.

If it is a different part ... the same response applies ... first stop ... get the parts and any info you can from the guy at the counter. If they dont know ... go to another Auto Parts place.

Thanks for your inquiry at ... let me know how you make out.

    you may have success heating ... but yes, you will probably have to drill and tap or use those magic replacement threads with the glue ...

How to remove a broken bolt or stud with an easy out

If you've broken off a bolt or stud, you no doubt think the end has arrived - not necessarily!! There are several ways to get that troublesome piece of metal out - even if it broke off flush with the surface, and the aftermarket has several different tools available. First on the list would be an Easy out, which comes in a set of several different sizes. Instead of using a standard drill bit to drill a hole in your workpiece, buy a set of left handed drill bits and chuck up the appropriate size in a reversible, variable speed drill. Use a fine point metal punch to make a dimple in the CENTER of the bolt or stud. The closer to center you are the greater the chance for success. Set the drill at a slow speed. It would be best to have the piece horizontal so you can use cutting oil ( or motor oil in a pinch) to help lubricate the hole as you drill. In either case, drill slowly into the bolt, making sure you are level and straight.You can guide the bit by maneuvering the drill at different angles to keep your hole centered. Drill at least 3/4 inch into the bolt, using plenty of oil and making sure you don't overheat the bit - you don't want it to break off. Watch closely as you drill - it is possible that the bolt could back out of the hole as you go! When you've reached the desired depth, remove the bit and, for added help, use an oxygen acetylene torch to heat up the bolt. stop just before it begins to glow orange and quickly push a plain paraffin candle into the side of the bolt.( If you don't have access to a torch, you can try a rust buster or other penetrating oil to release the threads from the hole cavity.) Now lightly tap your easy out into the bolt with a hammer and carefully turn it with an open end or crescent wrench. You'll need to work quickly before the bolt cools too much. The wax will work its way in between the threads of the bolt by capillary action, releasing the bolt for an easier removal. If this doesn't work, then you'll probably need to drill out the bolt fragments and use an appropriately sized Helicoil kit to replace the threads. Before you re - install a new bolt or stud, get the right size and pitch of a thread tap and tap out ( or re cut ) the threads to make sure your new fastener will not strip out the old threads.<br />Best of luck!!

How do you replace the front rotors on a 1996 honda accord?

Remove wheel. Take off outer driveshaft nut. Remove lower ball joint pinch bolt & separate ball joint from spindle. Pull rotor & spindle out & away to pull driveshaft outer splined end out of rotor center hub. Look on the back of the spindle for the 4 bolts that hold in the wheel bearing. Use a 12 point socket to remove the 4 bolts and remove wheel bearing from spindle (out towards the wheel stud side). Probably will have to use a air chisel to get it out. Once it's out undo the 4 bolts on the outer (wheel stud side) of the rotor and remove the rotor from the hub. Clean & lube the hole where the bearing was in the spindle & the inner face of the hub. MAKE SURE IT'S CLEAN otherwise you may get a pulsation on braking if theres a piece of rust or dirt between the rotor center & the hub face. Reverse procedure to install.

If the rear bolts don't come out then you will have to use a slide hammer to separate the bearing to replace the rotor and there is a very good chance you will need to replace the wheel bearing after you're done (noisy on road test).

Not the job to do at home, usually an easy 2-3 hours per side if things go bad (book time is 2.2 hrs per side). Use good quality rotors as you don't want to have to do it again because a cheap rotor gave you a pulsation.

My car sometimes turnes off suddenly during

I had the same problem on my 1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl. It was the ignition switch. I received a letter from Honda regarding a recall on the ignition switch and had it replaced. 3 years after replacement it would turn off again & this time I purchased part from eBaby & replaced it myself. It hasn’t stalled since.

Brake pedal goes down to far very intermittently.

The fact that you say it is an intermitant problem makes me think your new master cyl is no good. If it happened all the time , I would suggest bleeding the system , and adjusting (tightening) the rear brakes.
If it is the Master , I would expect you would loose a bit of fluid , but you might not see any because it would be leaking out the end of the master and into the booster unit.

How do i replace the back disc brakes on my 2001

There could be a rust buildup in the center surrounding your hub nut making look like the two are connected. Carefully chip the rust away from that area with a hammer and a flat-head screwdriver (wear glasses during). Also the rotor has phillips style retaining screws securing the disc to the hub. If you can't get them screws out I'll tell you what I do on my personal cars, but it's not so approved in the ASE world. I drill the screws out and leave 'em out because the wheel holds the rotor on with the lug nuts. REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS... Spray some lube in all the openings available on the old disc. You have to remove the bolts to move the brake caliper out of the way (don't open the brake line), just move it and rest it on something like a lower control arm, don't let it hang on a brake line alone. Remove the phillips disc retaining screws. Chip away any rust that is visually preventing removal. OPTION 1 is to insert two 12mm bolts in the threaded holes of the old disc and crank each one evenly until the disc shows signs of backing off (better not to use bolts from the car for this because they can break off in your old disc)... or OPTION 2: Hammer the heck out of it until it can be wiggled off. Rear brakes generally last twice as long as front brakes, this only means they get to sit on there longer and bond to the car as it ages... GOOD LUCK!!!
