when I was replacing my rims today with my new 18" Gewalts I realized I have 1 stud broken in the left front wheel. so now I only have 4 wheel nuts on there.

is it hard to replace the stud? what are the steps need to access the stud? I have replaced my brake rotors before but couldnt see where the stud is inserted.....or should I just take it to a dealer and have them do it?

thanx

I would just remove the rotor and hammer the stud out from the front with a point chisel and hammer. Removing the rotor should give you easier acces to the hub(I think that is what it is called) to remove the stud. I had to replace a couple of rear studs, but was able to do it with the rotor on. Good luck.

thanx,

so once I hummer out the stud, is it hard to put the new one back into the hub? I guess I would have to take thatmetal cover off also?
I was reading the repair manual on hub replacement and I was afriad I have to take the whole hub assembly apart...

thanx

I wouldn't think so. Just put the stud through from behind and use a lug nut to pull it through. If that is the case sorry. I found out the Toyota studs are weaker then Nissans studs. I only torque down to 72ft/lbs for the Supra. My Z I torqued down to 90ft/lbs.

Z's recommended torque is 76 ft/Lbs as well :)

Before you hammer anything, make sure the stud can come out on the back side, without hitting suspension or something.

Also, like S. said, use open-end lugnut to pull the whole stud thruough, and seat it in the hub.

Monster,

so how much torque do you use for your supra wheels? do you think 80lbs is sufficient?

does the front wheel hub differnt from the rear?

thanx

wheel lugs

Jonas,

If you have to replace 1 lug, replace all 20. There's a great chance you'll have this problem all around, and losing more than 2 at speed could have dire consequences!!!!

thanx for the input,

I replaced it already, it wasnt as difficult as I expected, just tok my time and make sure the stud sits in the hub nicely when torque down.
