Remove the wheel and the brake rotor, so that you can get a hand behind the hub flange where the stud is seated. You'll feel the head of the stud back there.

Use a socket extension or something similar, place it against the broken face of the stud, and hammer it out. It'll fall out behind the hub flange, and you can grab it and remove it (if it doesn't fall to the ground). Insert the new stud (available at a parts store for less than $3) into the flange from behind, and press it as hard as you can to get it seated in the splines. Then stack washers onto the stud on the outside, where you can see it, and tighten a lug nut onto the stud. Use your tire iron to tighten the lug nut on the stud - this will pull the stud into place. You may have to stop once or twice to add more washers onto the stud, but keep doing this until you can't tighten it any further and the length of the exposed section of the stud is even with the others. When all studs are replaced, reinstall your rotor and caliper, put the wheel back on (torque it with a torque wrench), and you're done.

How to change front brake rotor on 2000 ford taurus wagon cause front wheel shake when brake apply


Remove both caliper mounting bolts should be 12 or 13 mm bolts. Next remove both caliper mounting bracket bolts 15mm. Rotor should then pull off. If not use large hammer and hit the face off the rotor hub between the wheel studs until it comes loose. Make sure the face of the wheel hub is free of rust between the wheel studs and use high temp anti seize around the center circle of the wheel studs.

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town


I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

Front wheel stud broke off


Knuckle needs to be removed and the center hub 'pressed out' using a hydraulic press (accepted procedure). You can avoid this by using an air hammer and disk cutting tool to remove the old stud, then trim the 'stop flange' on the new stud (1/4 moon cut) in order to install it.... however, you gotta know what you're doing so you don't compromise the integrity of the new stud.

REPLACING FRONT HUB STUDS FOR A 98 HONDA PRELUDE


To remove that hub you will destroy the bearing. Because you have to remove it with a slide hammer. It is not necessary to remove the hub to change the studs. Remove the caliper, caliper bridge and rotor. Using a hammer simply knock out the stud or studs you want to replace. Put new stud in and using a sleeve that has a bigger diameter than the stud (I use a big nut, like the one on the axle) put big nut over stud and screw lug nut on stud and tighten until head of stud is flush with hub. Re-install rotor, caliper bridge and caliper. Hope this helps.
