Detail: Snaped stud off when trying to remove wheel i was wondering if it was just a pressure fitting or i will need it to be replaced completly and if it is a pressure fitting how would i go about extracting the sheared off bolt. torch and hammer ? and what else will i need to remove to get at the broken stud . thank you for your input (positive, i know its a Backfire ) replacing wheel studs on both front wheels for 2003 Sunfire
Solution: Yes you can replace the broken wheel stud. The wheel studs are pressed into place, and a vise will work to press it out, and in. You will have to remove the wheel hub, and then use a deep well socket and a bolt or something smaller than the actual stud to remove it with a vise. To replace it, you will need to use the deep well socket on the thread side of the stud, and press the new one in with the vise. I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck with your repair. , Hi, a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
