    Wheel Stud Issue

    I overtightened one of my lugs by accident (did not hear the click of the tq. wrench) and broke it. It was on the rear drivers side and was a PITA to fix. My advice if you need to replace a stud on this location is to take out the parking brake pin (which is held by a 10mm bolt) so you have a hole to tap the new stud with a punch (or similar item). You are also going to have to take the rotor off to see what you are doing.
    I got my new stud from NAPA for $1.79 and needed to take a tiny amount off one side at the top so it would clear the parking brake "gear". The whole ordeal took a lot longer than I wanted it to (), but if it ever happened again (I hope not!), I could do it in a fraction of the time.

    A stock size stud will fit without pulling the axle.

    Or removing anything. Takes some time to find the right position, but there is one spot on the backing plate that will allow the stock size stud to be removed and put back in.


    Remove wheel. Remove caliper. Remove rotor. Remove e-brake ring.
    Hit dead stud with hammer until it pops out.
    Turn the hub while trying to get the new stud through.


    Now...try my 3.25" ARP studs.
    Little different.



    The piece the original poster removed (that is held on with a 10mm bolt) is the wheel speed sensor. This will make life much easier if you want to go that route. New stud can go into the hub via that hole.
