Safely jack and support the vehicle,remove wheel and tire assembly,with a punch and ball peen hammer (and safety glasses) or just a hammer,carefully knock broken stud out of the hub,it will fall out the back.Now take new stud and spin the hub until you find a spot where it will insert into the hole from the backside.Start the stud through the hole from the backside of the hub.Now at this point,you are going to PULL the stud into the hub,but the threads must be protected from galling.I use Anti Seize compound and some flat washers.Liberally coat the threads of the new stud with anti seize compound to protect the threads,stack some flat washers on the stud,install the lug nut,and tighten by hand.The stud will pull into the hub some.Remove lug nut,and stack more washers on the stud,and repeat the tightening process.Repeat process until stud is fully seated.Now remove anti seize compound with brake cleaner or equivalent solvent.Reinstall wheel and tire,and call this job completed.Remember to rate this solution.Good luck.

    Forgot to mention,the brake rotor,caliper,and mounting bracket must be removed.There are 2..12 mm bolts holding the brake caliper to the bracket,remove these and set the caliper aside.Remove 2...17 mm bolts and the caliper bracket can then be removed as well as the rotor.Now you are down to the hub.

My rear right side tire is wobbling on my cheverlote cavalier?

are the lug nuts tight?
If so you may want to remove the wheel to inspect more thoroughly as that is serious - you may have a possible broken lug bolt - hard to say more without more details.
: Possible bent rim?
Loose half shaft (depending on if front or rear?)
Bearing on the spindle could be shot if on the rear..
best regards

3 lugs r broken on my front drivers side wheel of my honda odyssey. the hub needs to b replaced, but it wont come off the van.

The front hub has to be pressed off the steering knuckle with press normally found at an automotive machine shop. You have to take the whole steering knuckle and hub off first which requires separating the ball joints. It's a tough job---pick a major shop with good equipment and tech's.

How to replace broken lug nut

What you do to replace a broken lug is, first you have to remove your tire and wheel from the vehicle(after you loosen the other lugs and jack it up of course) Then you are going to have to get the rotor off but in order to do that you have to remove your brake calipers and mounting bracket. There should be 2 bolts holding your caliper(the thing that your brake shoes are sitting in) remove those two bolts and take caliper off. set off to side or on frame somewhere(do not let hang from hose). Next you need to take off mounting bracket which should also have 2 bolts securing it to the vehicle. Remove those 2 bolst and set bracket aside. After that remove your rotor, it should slide right off. On the back of the rotor you should be able to see the tops off your lugs, find the broken one and punch it out with a hammer and punch hitting it from the front to the back. After you get the old 1 out just stick the new 1 in. It won't go in very far because it will be very tight. Use the lug nut and tighten it down to draw it through so that it is flush. Hope I was able to help you out.

Have broken lug bolts front passenger side, can I replace them myself?

yes but it is a huge pain in the *** you have to remove the wheel the brake caliper and the brake disk and remember it isn't lego it is all bolted on and screwed together and if you mess it up it wont be just your life that comes to a sudden stop you may kill somone else so if you havent do it b4 then stop

if you have done a front brake job and survived than di it again once the rotor removed there is the flange plate and the broken studs get the hammer out wack each broken bolt to remove it place the new stud in the hole and get the tire iron out tighten it up pull it right through you might need a spacer like a 6 pack of washers to pull the bolt all the way through
reinstall the brakes and happy driving remember after the first 50 km get out the tire iron and re check the studs are all tight as it will likely settle after a bit of brake heat

How to replace front broken wheel stud on a '02 jeep grand limited 4x4...steps involve to replace the bolt with a new one? thanks!

Remove wheel, brake caliper and rotor. Give the broken lug a good shot with a decent weight hammer and drive it out of the hub flange. Put new stud into hole, place a stack of washers on it and place the lug nut on backwards (flat side in)
Use oil on the threads to prevent binding, tighten lug 'till stud is seated, replace everything you removed.

Need to replace broken lug bolt

If you have room behind the broken lug you can usually drive it out with a good smack of a sledge hammer. To re-install, use a stack of washers between the nut and flange and draw the lug into position. (plenty of oil on threads to avoid galling)

Replacment of wheel lug bolts on rear wheels

The bolts can be replaced 1 of 2 ways w/o pulling axle. Need to take rotor off and either press bolts out with an arbor press or can be tapped out with a copper or brass hammer. Once out, the new ones can be pressed in by putting about 4 or 5 washers on and then tightening the lug nut down until the lug is pulled snug into the roter. Once snug, the roter can then be reinstalled on the wheel and brake assy put back. Caution!! Brake assy needs to be supported up out of the way with wire or coat hanger while removing rotor. Undo force of weight on brake pad assy can damage hose or unit itself.
