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.

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?

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

its pretty easy, i wouldnt sweat it, just beat the lil sum bitch out of there, and make sure u get honda genuine studs, they will last longer, and have better luck with them, plus fitment will be better

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.

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.
