The front wheel stud on a 1992 Chevy Blazer S10 can be changed by jacking the vehicle up, removing the wheel, and unbolting the caliper. The rotor assembly can then be removed, and the wheel stud pressed or hammered out of its seat.

If by stud you mean wheel stud you have to remove the bearing and have a shop take it out or rent a press and press it out yourself because wheel studs are pressed onto the wheel bearing.

Depends on your ability and the vehicle in question.

You need to get the rotor off to replace studs with new ones.

Are you asking about a wheel stud or exhaust stud, please clarify

YOU CAN'T. A 1500 rim has 6 stud holes. A 2500 rim has 8 stud holes. IT JUST WONT WORK

I am assuming you mean for a wheel. You take the wheel off and the caliper and then finally the brake disc. pound out the busted stud through the other side. Be carefull not to hit the wheel bearing. insert the new stud and then using a huge C- clamp, tighten it into postion. Get a Chilton or Haynes manual for like 15 bucks, they tell how to do this and a whole lot more.

Jack the car up and remove the front wheel. Use a jack stand for safety. Rotate the axle until the stud is over the hole in the backer plate. Hit the stud with a hammer, this will take many blows. The stud will pop out. Slide the new stud in, then stack several washers on the shaft and put a lug nut on. Tighten the nut to pull the stud up tight into place. Reinstall the wheel, and over the next few days, keep checking the tightness of the stud to keep it snugged up.

remove the wheel then the brake drum then tap out the old studs with a hammer and pull in the new stud with some washers to protect the threads and tightening the nut until the stud is fully home reinstall the drum and the wheel and torque bolts and you are done good luck

take the wheel out and take the two bolts from the caliper off once you did that take the disc off or drum and hit the wheel stud in till it comes off then put the new one in and hit in till the stud is in all the way and then bolt on the bolts and mount the wheel and that's that's!

On most vehicles you take off the tire, put the lug nut back on the stud and drive it out with a hammer . When you put the new stud in you can line it up and drive it in with a hammer or pull it through with a few washers and the new nut.

No they are not the with of the stud holes are different.

Drive the old broken wheel stud out, and drive a new one in. Purchase the new stud at any auto parts store.

Remove wheel, brake caliper, brake disc, parking brake shoes etc. Drive out broken stud, replace with new stud. Replace above in reverse order.

Does anyone know if there is a cut out to allow removal and installation of new wheel stud on a 2005 nissan altima? thanks Robert

I believe it takes a 3/4 " ( 19 mm ) socket - the wheel stud size is 1/2 " - 20

Removing the wheel stud can be a pain, depending on it's length. It may be required to cut the wheel stud down with a hack saw or cutting wheel to a small length then driving it out with a punch. it will be easier if you move the spindal around so that the wheel stud that is broken/being replaced is in the middle position frontmost of the vehicle. or, on a clock, at 9 o'clock on the left side and 3 o'clock on the right side. it may also be necessary to knock back the dust shield some to make clearance for the wheel stud. then just use the punch and drive out the old wheel stud. it's often easier to put the new wheel stud in the freezer overnight or at least 10 minutes for easier installation. due to the way the hub is designed, and I'm assuming we all want to do this without specialty tools and without pulling apart the whole spindal, these are the tools we need. either a vice or vice grips and a file. take the new wheel stud and grip it on the splines above the threads. now file the head down about 1/16 or 1/8 an inch and that should give you the clearance to tap the new wheel stud into place. do not tap the wheel stud all the way into place, just so that it is in the hole, straight and with threads showing through the spindal. now, and this may be necessary with skunk2 extended wheel studs or if you have lug nuts that do not thread straight through. you may need a spacer or if worst comes to worst, a wholeeeee lot of washers. thread the lug nut on to the wheel stud and tighten as far as it will go using the nut to bring through the back of the wheel stud. once that is in all the way, you are done. just back out the lug nut and boom, there is your new wheel stud. if you need any more specific details, just drop me an email at

Jack up the vehicle and put a safety stand under it. Take the wheel off. With a hammer hit the stud on the tip, several blows should knock it loose. The stud can be pulled out from the rear. Slide a new stud into place, and put to two or three washers on it. thread the nut on, then tighten it. The nut will pull the stud in tight. Remove the nut and washers, then remount the wheel.

Drive out the old one with a drift and a hammer and press in a new one. You can buy a new wheel stud at most auto supply stores.

See the attached links for some good instructions on how to replace the wheel studs. It generally breaks down into a few steps: 1) get the right tools together (and the replacement stud if you know the size) 2) jack up the car and remove the wheel 3) remove the brakes 4) knock out the stud to be replaced. (if you didn't get a replacement stud before you started, take the stud you removed with you to the auto-parts store to get it matched up to what you need) 5) Insert the new stud 6) screw a nut onto the stud and tighten it until the new stud is seated 7) reinstall your brakes and put your wheel back on

I had to do this oncve and thought I could do it myself, but after taking off the wheel found I need special tool to do it, so had to put back together and ask the Honda dealership to do it.

The hub will need to be removed and the stud pressed or drilled out to be replaced.
