How do i change?

Postby paintgod93 » Fri Nov 29, 2002 7:37 pm

Or I guess I should say, "How do I put in a new wheel stud?"
I broke one the other day when I had to pull off my Nitto for a nail.  The chilton doesn't really explain it very well.

jack the car up, take off the rear wheel, take of the drum, using the holes in the hub, unbolt the hub/bearing assembly, it should be a 55 Torx bit. Do the upper rear bolt last to make things easier. Pull the assembly towards you through all the rear braking shizzle. Now install to of the bolts back in to hold the whole lot togethor while you work on the studs.

To get the old stud out, rest the hub on something (just the hub, not the whole bearing assembly) and beat on it till it comes out. Then just get a new one and pound the new one in. Then just put it all back togethor, torgue the bolts to about 70 ft/lbs, and you'll be good to go.

Its pretty simple. I replaced all 10 of the rear ones on my jeep in a few minutes :)

Thanks for the reply Rebel, I figured it out last night and got her done.  The sledgehammer is such a versatile tool.

When I replaced a rear lug on mine I didn't remove the hub, I was able to pound it out and draw the new lug in with a lug nut and a few washers.

if you're pounding on the lug to get it off, then your doing it the hard way :p

but, kidding aside, i don't think its really healthy for the bearings to beat on the hub while its on the car to get the studs off.....

Actually they make a tool that looks very much like a "C" clamp that removes them. I've really never used a lot of effort or force to rap them out with small hammer.

he's right
our cheap bearings don't like the pounding..... I replaced a few studs that way and then a month later the bearings :(
