Default Wheel Stud Replacement With Pictures

First I'll say I'm not an expert here. So, if you have any suggestions, please post them.

I was in the middle of replacing my struts (that's another How-To) when this happened.

Sheesh!!!

Time to run up to Advance and get another stud. They had the stud and lug nut in stock for about $2.

New stud and nut

Get the wheel off and pull the brake drum. This was the first time in over thirty years as a DIY that I had to resort to a puller to get a brake drum off.

Pulling brake drum. It came off with a very satisfying snap.
Inside brake drum.

If the stud is broken off too close to the base, you have to use a punch. In this case, it popped out with a few whacks with a ball peen hammer.

Broken stud removed.

There's not room on the back of the brake to put in the new stud. So, rotate the axle around to where the stud hole is in the front. Some bent needle nose pliers are helpful getting the new stud in place.

Placing the new stud.

I used a lug nut and an impact wrench to pull the stud into place. If you only have hand tools, you'll have to put something between the other studs to keep the axle from turning while you tighten it down. You really only have to get it far enough in to stay in place and not interfere with the brake. When you torque the lug nut with the wheel on, you'll be able to apply more force.

Pulling the stud into place.

Now you can put the brake drum and wheel back on and tighten down the lugs.

...
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Great write up. I personally know how much work it is to upload pictures and document things. It's much appreciated

I used a method involving a C Clamp and a socket to get the stud out. More info and some pics here:

man i had to use a puller today to replace a rear stud(yay!), the same one in the pic today from autozone $40 cause these are probably stock breaks at 240k lolmao then, of course, the fluid relief screw was rusted almost off so the break pads came undone with the pins also being rotted to nothing, a long story short
I had to ride a mile on my bike to the parts store while it was 49 degrees out for a rear brake hardware kit, not bad considering i was riding when it was 42 degrees yesterday to get my new 205 60 15 toyo extensas put on at town fair, but the discount that wound up cost me 478$ turned into another 75$ to replace one stupid stud,

but now I have a nice break puller and some s-series brake hardware
