i just had this problem about 2 weeks ago.... the proper way would be to remove the hub and dissasemble the appropriate pieces, but my studs had half the heads worn cuz they were loose so they slid right out, for you i suggest takin a saw to them to get them off (since there's no use for them after you're done).

Now to get them on i just "worked" them on w/a plastic hammer, be careful when you do this so as not to damage the threads. the 1st 1/4 or 1/3 of the stud will go inthe rest will need your help. Taking off the dust shield gives you more space to work in. this is the quicker way to do this, i had it all done in about 45 min to an hour.

yeah, honda sells them for 5 bucks a stud..... realistically, all you have to do is hammer them out the back side of the hub

take your hub off and take it to a shop with a press, they should be pressed out and the new ones pressed in, yeah i guess you can do this yourself but make sure you have a big hammer and get them in straight or your wheels will have a problem fitting properly, the shop will have studs there, just make sure that they are the right pitch thread if you have through lugs, see if you can get the studs longer to take advantage of your lugs

Have any of you actually done this? Or even looked at the manual on how to do this for the front wheels? I have, and according to honda the proper way is to remove the hubs, press out the wheel bearing (which will be destroyed in the process (approx $80)), then remove and replace the stud. A shortcut to this is to remove the dust sheild, grind or cut the bad stud and remove, then grind down one side of the studs seating surface to allow it to pass into the hub without removal of anything aside from the brakes and dust sheild. A full size stud will not pass into the hole without pressing out the wheel bearing.

I've done it by hammering it out the back side of the wheel. The dust cover may get in the way so you might have to pry that back. If the stud is snapped (like mine was) then you can tap it out with a hammer and screwdriver. IF it is full length, you MIGHT have to cut it down... then you can hammer a new one back in. I've done it both ways....... not recently, but twice on each side.... and this is how I did it.
