I just noticed that one of the lug bolts on the drivers side rear has broken completely off! f#*K mE! Is this some thing easily fixed or does it have to go to the shop?


Thanks!

I didn't think it was that hard to replace the studs. My boy was going to replace my studs for longer ones free of charge last year but he did have a shop tho :???:

driving on 2? i hope there wasn't any big pot holes in your area. lol

yeah, your right, it's got to be pressed out or a ball peen hammer which I don't have. looks like from the haynes and chilton guides they also recommend new bearing and possibly new axile nut because they don't like you using the old ones. I've an appt. at a shop across the street in the morn.

when I inspected the damage, there was one loose lug and only 2 really holding it in. the reason I checked is cause I would hear a kind of vibrating noise when I was taking hard right turns. I hope I didn't mess up anything else.

i had mine press out then pressed back in wiht new studs then back out to raplace the whell baring and back in now the same whell bearing went out again. so i would get new whell baring and nut and all and have it presed out dont try and do it with a hamer and socket you will end up messing up the hub .

I had the same thing happen on my Pathfinder a year ago. Knocking the stud out of the hub was easy, but getting the hub apart was a complete pain in the ass. If you have the time and the tools do it yourself, shop time isn't cheap
