Question about 2002 GMC Yukon XL
While attempting to change a flat tire I stripped my rotor studs. How do I change the rear rotor studs?
These studs are 'pressed' in at the factory, and really should be replaced by a professional.
At the very least you would need a shop press and/or apowerful air compressor and impact gun.
First, are they in the rotor or the hub. (I don't know if this is a4x2, 4x4, etc.) If they are in the hub itself, this MUST be done by a professional. If they are in the rotor, I would seriously consider replacing the rotor, which in some cases can actually be cheaper.
If you don't want to replace the rotor, please take it to a qualified mechanic, parts store (some do this type of work regularly), or machine shop.
Although I could describe how to do it, an improperly seated wheel stud could have tragic consequenses. Good Luck!
