Lugnuts and wheel studs
you will have to pull the barke drum off and knock the studs out and should be able to get new ones in and use a nut and spacer to pull the new studs tight

These bolts are called Lug nuts. It is most likely unsafe to drive the car. Have it towed to any tire shop and they will be able to replace the lug nuts and the bolts if needed. Also have them check the other tires. Again this car is UNSAFE to drive in its current condition.

Hello,

To replace the starter of a 1998 toyota corolla, please follow the steps below:
  1. Remove the key from the ignition, and remove the battery, do not attempt this with the battery in car.
  2. Remove the battery and tray.
  3. Look to the rear of the engine, You'll see the top of the starter, loosen and remove the 14mm bolt/nut holding it down below,
  4. Drain the radiator and remove the lower radiator hose. This will let You squeeze the starter around the AC line,
  5. Then install the new starter, the one bolt You removed from the bottom, screw the last 14mm bolt on the starter into the transmission loosely,
  6. Go up top, reinstall the top bolt, tighten this firmly but not all the way,
  7. Go below, tighten the bottom bolt to final spec.
  8. Reattach all the wires, make sure the trigger wire is snapped in fully.
  9. Go up top, firmly firmly tighten to spec the top bolt,

My front passenger tire of my 98 Corolla will not come off. I took off the lugnuts, but it seems like there is another big bolt holding it on?


Give it a boot, it should pop off, the aluminum oxidizes and sticks to the steel, There is no big bolt. Just lug nuts. Hope this helps.

We have a 1998 Saturn SW1 station wagon and the motor mount broke and we need to fix it. Any ideas?


The top and side mounts are easy, unless you snap off a bolt. To do the side dog bones, remove the right front service panel behind the wheel, yes you have to take the tire off, and remove the battery tray on the left side. Remove the long screws holding the tray on through the left front wheel well. Replacing the dog bones is take out the two bolts and then bolt the new ones in. Top mount is simply loosen the nuts, remove and replace, tricky part is to support the engine while you swap the mount. Bottom mount takes a little more time and a jack. If you never changed the tensioner, you may want to do this while you have that right front service panel open.

I have a flat, how do I get the spare tire down?


in the boot/trunk at the rear of the boot area under the carpet will be a bolt head, usually a 17 mm , which is connected to a hook that hold the spare wheel carrier up.
unwind this bolt and the carrier will begin to lower. once you have unwound it a bit, look underneath the vehicle and the wheel will be lower, you can usually lift the rack up and unhook the bolt to lower the rack to slide the spare out. do the reverse when replacing the wheel

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 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.

Broken lug bolt


Easy. Take wheel and tire off, and remove the brake drum, if it has drum brakes. With a hammer, hit the broken stud until it pops out. Slide the new stud into the hole, and, using some thick washers, screw the lugnut onto the new stud, over the washers. Tighten it until the stud is pulled all of the way in. Easier done with an air wrench, however.
