Hi,

You need a stud extractor tool, or if it is flush, a 1/4" drill and a screw extractor.

Wheel studs broke off


A shop can install new studs in a short time. The old studs can be pressed out or punched out, and new ones installed and drawn into a tight fit.

I hit a curd on the side of my rims i have 275 45 20 i broke 3 studs i replaced all studs and they broke again i do hear a noise everything the wheel turns faster i go the faster the sound and how much to...


If you broke 3 studs when you hit the curb then you can be sure that at the very least you have bent the rim, which will have to be replaced. At the worst you have bent an axle which will have to be replaced. You may have bent the rear end housing as well. This needs to go to a repair shop and be checked over to determine the extent of the problems. Don't put this off, it's very troubling that the studs broke again. Hope this helps.

Does the wheel barring have to be replaced when the stud is broke


If you use a hammer to drive the broken stud out you can cause damage to the bearing.
If you use a wheel stud press, the hub bearing will not be affected. The press will remove the old stud and install the new one.
Good luck.

What caused all 5 lug studs to break? How do I replace them?


The 24" wheel caused the problem. The car is designed to have 15" wheels on it. The added weight and stress from the monstrous tires is too much for the little studs.

Broken wheel stud.


Studs are pressed in. Heat the studs with a propane torch, and then use a ballpein hammer to pound them out. Insert new studs, and use nuts to draw them into place

Broke stud on front left side


Yes you can replace the broken wheel stud. The wheel studs are pressed into place, and a vise will work to press it out, and in. You will have to remove the wheel hub, and then use a deep well socket and a bolt or something smaller than the actual stud to remove it with a vise. To replace it, you will need to use the deep well socket on the thread side of the stud, and press the new one in with the vise.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck with your repair.

2003 hyundai elantra gls front wheel stud broke


grab a large punch and hammer and knock out the old broken one. Push the new one in and re tighten. This will pull it into place and because it has splines it should not spin while doing so.
