I would only be guessing on the why it happened

You would be the one to know the vehicles history

I NEVER use air guns on wheel lugs or seldom
anything else & I have every tool you can own

The pros can not start their day or function at all
without an air tool

So I would say they broke them with too much air
pressure

Also, I will disagree with the trade publications, which
I get,having once owned a business, based on
almost 50 years experience & say you need clean
studs & I use anti-seize and only 80# on lugs nuts.
Never had one loosen up.

Hopefully you can hammer them out & install new ones

If they were on the front,then you don't always have clearance
& have to replace an expensive hub assy.

You can do that yourself
Get the studs at parts store & use an old nut & some spacers
or washers to draw then in

Or have a tire store do it
They may be able to use there air gun to pull them in
without any issues

Why is the drivers side rear rotor so loose, can hear it rattle when kick tire. Pulled wheel and everything looks normal can move it freely. None of others are like that. On 1991 chevy lumina euro


Check your studs,they maybe stripped at the end and the lug nuts are not holding the tire against the rotor tight,replace all 5 studs and all 5 lug nuts and see if it solves your problem.

Smack whats left out with a hammer. Put the new ones in place then put a spacer on the tire side of the stud and tighten the lug nut. It will pull the stud into place.

One of the bolts holding the left rear tire on sheared off when I was rotating my tires.The parts are cheap but how do I replace the bolt?


Remove the tire, and the brake drum. With a suitable punch, and safety glasses on, drive the broken stud towards the center of the car. The stud will push away from you, thru the hub, and fall out. Get the new stud, and poke it thru the now existing hole on the hub. Place a flat washer over the stud, and thread a lug nut onto the stud, and tighten the lugnut until the stud is pulled all of the way into the hub. Remove the lug nut and the washer, and refite the drum and the wheel.

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...

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.

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 lug stud on rear wheel.


It appears from the excellent picture that the stud has to be spun to line up the half moons at the rear of the stud.Use two thin nuts locked together so you can spin the remaining stud to line up with reliefs in back of the retainer.
