The first step in wheel stud replacement is to remove the old one. On almost every car, this is done by taping them out from the threaded side
.
Rotate the hub so that the back side (flat, on the back side of the hub) will not smash into something when you tap it out.
You will need a heavy hammer and safety glasses,

Next, while the glasses are on your face, use the hammer and whack on the threaded end of the old stud to drive it out the back side of the hub. If if was broken off real short, you might have to use a punch to transfer the hammer blows to what is left of the stud.

To install the new one, place it in the hole from the back side and use a standard lug nut on the new stud screwed on backwards (flat end toward the hub) and then use the car's lug wrench to tighten the nut and pull the stud into the hub. Make sure the grooves in the hub line up with the ridges in the new stud before trying to seat it.

Once the stud is fully seated, remove the lug nut. You are done.

I usually buy a standard lug nut that fits the replacement stud to do this procedure because most mag nuts are closed on the back end. It is cheap and will save lots of time.

You Can Replace The Wheel Studs Call Napa And Find Out How Much They Are. Dont Go Dealer Cause They Are $20 A Piece And At Napa Like $4 Also You Can Try Autozone Or Kraigen But They Never Have The Ones I Need. Its Also Very Easy To Do Yourself If You Can Change The Brakes You Can Do This. You Can Have Them Pressed In At Any Tire Shop Usually $5.
Happy Fixing

Front or rear? The front will have a disc and the rear should be a drum. Either way the stud gets pressed out of the back and with the proper equipment it is a very easy procedure. If you do not have the proper tools simply take the drum or disc to a brake shop for the inexpensive repair to be done properly.

2000 Dodge Caravan....broken wheel studs...


Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck

How to replace rear wheel stud. 2003 dodge caravan


Should be a pressed in wheel stud, remove hub and have old one pressed out or you can do it the primitive way, by double nutting the old stud and striking it with a hammer to pound it out, if threads are bad then just strike the stud by itself , then replace new stud in opposite fashion...

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.
