    Exclamation new 99 TA stripped out wheel bolt

    I recently bought my 99 TA and it was squeaking a bit from the brakes so i took it to the shop and removed the tires to check the brakes, but i got a little more than i barganed for...

    When i removed the right rear wheel lug nuts, one of them was crossthreaded all to hell and when i went to take it off it ripped half the stud off with it!

    Anyone know what i can do to repair it or where i can find a replacement rear wheel hub for a 1999 TA? I asked around but everyone says they can't get it because of the TCS hookup on the hub...

    You only need the stud. Not a whole hub.


    $6 or something stupid from the stealership...and about an hour of your time.

    thank you, you just saved me about $300 and a ton of time, I'm still fairly new to working on cars so i had no idea those could be replaced...

    The fronts are easier.
    But I think you can still get the rears without removing the axles. Just requires some patience, seeing as how you have to turn the rear without the wheel on to get the new stud in.

    when you go to install the stud if you have a problem getting the angle to slide it in, don't pull the rear end apart just grind a 45 degree angle in to the edge of the threads then clean them up with a thread chaser and viola easy fix. had the same on my 87 and had to grind the stud or pull the axle to put it in also seat it by using an old acorn lugnut and a large nut( larger than the stud). put the large nut on first to keep the lugnut from bottoming out and then impact it on.
