Question about 1984 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have an 84 Toyota Camry, and the wheel studs sheared off, I got the old ones out, and to put the new ones in, you have to get the whole front of the car up so you can turn the spindle........anyway, after putting all the studs in each hole through the little slot underneath, I am wondering how you press them in there??? The only way I figured was to tighten them really tight, but normally I use a "C" clamp to do it. There is a plate behind them with no room, and you can't remove it. Let me know what I should do.......thanks.

Ideally you're supposed to take the hub off the car and use a hydraulic press to press them into place.

Alternatively you can do a less then ideal method by taking a stack of large washers and placing them over the stud and tightening a lugnut down. As you tighten the lugnut it should drawn the new stud thru the spindle into place.

Ignition switch is broke

Here are procedures for removing the ignitionlock assy. If equipped with SRS, extra care must be taken while removing ang installing to avoid damage to the SRS cable reel.

1. Remove steering wheel and combination switch (if necessary). Disconnect ignition switch harness connectors. If shear bolt studs are accessible, use a hacksaw to cut slots into exposed studs.

2. Remove studs using a screwdriver. If shear bolt studs are recessed or hard to reach with hacksaw, use a center punch on studs. Using a drill bit and screw extractor, remove studs. Place key in ACC position and remove ignition switch and lock cylinder.


To install, reverse removal procedure. Install NEW shear bolts. Tighten shear bolts finger tight. Ensure proper operation of ignition switch and lock cylinder. Tighten shear bolts until heads break off. Install combination switch, upper and lower steering column covers and steering wheel (if removed). Tighten steering wheel nut and Torx screws to specification.

Sheared front lug

First remove wheel from car. Next take large hammer and drive whats left of lug out, you may need to use a punch if sheared off below hub hight. Now insert new lug stud in from back side of hub and use a open style lug nut (like those you see on old cars without nice wheels) and put on upside down, flat side towards hub. tighten up by hand then use socket to tighten down untill stud is pulled in all the way. In some cases you may need to use a few washes under nut to give enough room for shank on stud.

How do i replace the front wheel studs on my hyundai accent

Hyundai in all their wisdom decided to use captive dust shields on the disc brakes. You need to completely disassemble the hub to get the shield off. On my 2008 Accent there is one spot that if you rotate the rotor to that spot and bend the shield back you can then get the stud in place. Be sure to get the right stud as the rear and front are probably different part numbers.

To get the old out use a hammer and a punch to pound them out the back. To get a new one in push it in as far as you can, then using something as a spacer (large nut or washers) and the wheel lug, tighten the stud up drawing it into the rotor.

1993 totoya camry v6- Changing the rotors

LOL!! Ya they are a pain in the a$$ if it's the year car I am thinking of. Are there 3 "threaded screw holes" near the wheel stud holes? If there is you need a special tool called a slide hammer to get the rotors off. You can get one of these on loan from Autozone for example. And may the force be with you.

If there is not, then you should jump up and down and be glad. Get some rust penetrant and a big hammer, like a 2 or 3 pound hammer. Put all lug nuts on all of the wheel studs (not tight just on a few turns with your fingers) to protect the threads when you are wacking at the rotor with the hammer. This will also keep the rotor from falling on you (they are pretty heavy). Spray the rust pentrant through the wheel stud holes and around the middle where the rotor meets the wheel hub and let it soak for about 5 minutes. Now firmly start wacking the rotor being careful not to hit the actual flat surface of the rotor but the very edge as well as the middle near the wheel studs.

A little cursing at it will improve your chances while you are hitting it. Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt!!

Good Luck!!
