Detail: I have a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. I was changing the roters and I broke off a lug bolt. I took off the roter ans then the cotter pin and then the big center bolt. Now the piece which holds the for bolts on will not come off. What do I do next to get that piece off?
Solution: HI: Stop!!! The "round plate" that the wheel studs are mounted to is your hub assembly. To replace a broken stud, you simply need to use a hammer and a drift pin punch, and pound it backwards. You replace it in similar fashion: insert the new wheel stud in from the back side of the hub, and use the wheel lug nut to draw the new stud into the hub assembly. , You may not have had to go as far as you have. The lug bolts are pressed into the hub and should be able to be driven out with a solid steel punch and a large hammer. Thank you, Dana , Of you look closely at the bot,, you will see there is a piece notched ion..tap it out and then you will be able to remove the bolt.. , Hi, a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
