by anychance, would you there be any step by step instructions on how to replace a wheel stud, one of my studs snaped in half while taking off a lugnut off my car , and now i bought the stud and nut, inquired on how much to install it and found it would take $$139$$ jus to install it :eek , it would be very much appreciated if i could find some step by step instructions or maybe get some ideas on getting started
I know on 5th gen it is a pain in the ass you can rotate the hub until you can see the back of the stud after you remove the caliper bracket, you can then use a c-clamp to push it out. I read that on the internet but I already had the hub assembly out so I just bang it out
ive tried searching for some exploded pictures of the rotor assembly, but was not able to fine some, perhaps any of you guyz might have an exploded picture of the rotor assembly, i could go from there and work my way to getting the stud in, i would really love to avoid paying $139$ jus to install one stud
Guess I'm resurecting an old post, but same question, same problem. Car- 1992 Accord Coupe LX. Found out I was cranking the chit out of the lug nuts on tire rotations (found the nuts stripping, fortunately not the studs) but got lucky and broke a stud off (front right.) Never knew what to crank them down to, now know, 80 ft/lbs. Anyway...
Ok, so done some research, got the parts, ready to give this a first time try. I can lift the car, got the stud, got the new nut, 'get' removing the wheel, caliper, disc, grinding off a corner of the new stud to help it fit with the hub connected, can freeze the stud. But, what about the broken stud and pushing it out? If I need to grind down a side of the new stud to fit 'in' w/out removing the hub, how does the old broken one get backed out w/out harming anything? -ac922
hey nus, thanks for the reply. i'm ok on ways to back it out, but if the new one (and this is my first time) needs a side grinded down so you don't need to remove the hub to get it in, what about the back of the old stud coming out? That won't have a side grinded down, so it won't clear when i knock it out, right?
