wheel stud replacement 02 Civic EX

I need to replace a front wheel stud on my '02 Civic EX. The shop says they need to pull the hub assembly, replace the bearing, ect... Looking at this post, it appears that can be avoided.

http://www.hondacivicforum.com/m_188380/tm.htm

My question is, do you have to grind down the old stud before you can remove it? Is there room to get a grinder back there?

Re: wheel stud replacement 02 Civic EX

hit it out with a hammer and it falls right out and no you dont need to replace the bearing...just take off the caliper and rotor, hit the old stud out and put the new one on

Re: wheel stud replacement 02 Civic EX

It depends on whether its the front or the rear. If its the front studs then the whole hub has to be removed in order to replace the studs. I know this first hand. If its the rear studs then you can whack them out with a hammer.

Re: wheel stud replacement 02 Civic EX

To get it out is easy! Cut it off with with a 4" grinder and punch it out with a drift pin (or equal). Putting it in is another matter. You can grind it like your link shows, but. You will be introducing a lot of stress concentrations wherever you grind... Chances are it will be ok, but with the loads this area sees, I would do it the right way. IMO.

Re: wheel stud replacement 02 Civic EX

U can replace the front lug without hub removal heres how. Tap out the lug as far as it will go then hacksaw off the inner round piece then hacksaw off the outer lug as close as u can get i did mine on the last thread then punch it out from front to rear (or you could grind it off basically remove the broken stud) . Now take the new one and hacksaw off the round piece at the front of the lug take the lug nut screw it on the new lug b(this is to protect the threads) now hammer it in threw the front you may have to slightly angle it but it will go make it flush. when i put my wheel back on I tightened mine to half of specs on the new stud . after a while when rust makes it solid it good 2 go. Its been over a year now total parts cost was like 3.00. (u could also drill a hole on the new stud where u cut the round piece off hammer it in thru the front u only have about a 1/4 inch room back there so make sure it has clearance and use a cotter pin but it worked out so good i let rust do it 4me.
