Hi all,

I have a question about how to replace broken wheel studs on a '99 CVPI. We found a car that is in good shape over all, but the current owner had it in for some work at a not so above board shop and they somehow broke all the wheel studs on a front wheel.

Is this a hard repair or should we forget the whole deal? What else should we look for with this type of damage? He did drop the front wheel whilst moving when the last bolt sheered off...

As for how it happened your guess is just as good as mine.

BUT, as far as replaces the studs them selves that shouldn't be that hard at all.

Step 1) beat the old stud out with a hammer
Step 2) put the new stud in from the back side.
step 3) you'll want to put the lug nut onto the new stud till its tight, then back it off, then tighten it again a few times. This will pull the stud into place so it seats properly. Your best bet is to use an impact but by hand works too just a little more work.

This is how I've always replaced broken studs and never had problems with it.

That's how we did it on the race car too hwne we broke a couple one night. Doesn't take long at all with an impact gun. Fixed it and went out and finished 3rd in the A Feature, we started in 10th place.

Ok, so do we have to tear apart the wheel assembly to knock them out? I am visualizing having a ton of parts and tools scattered across a cold Canadian snow covered driveway....

All you should have to do is take the wheel off ( of course thats already off).

after that take the caliper and rotor off( makes life MUCH easier).

After the rotor is off beat the old one out like stated above, then reverse the steps to put everything back together.

If that shop really screwed things up and the bearing is showing wear if you replace it you get 5 free studs \:D

Our front wheel bearing is held on by one nut and the hub is part of it in one piece.

If it's a 99 and has never been done, might as well do it, then won't have to worry about it again.

If it's a high mileage car, and you want to repair it very quickly in that cold driveway (like Rizzo said, one nut R&R)....you should be able to pick up a new hub and bearing assembly for $60-$80. This way it's a super fast repair and you have the piece of mind on having a new wheel bearing.

Just my $.02 \:\)
