Default How to remove Wheel Studs

Wasn't sure if this or mechanical was the right spot. I would like to remove my current wheel stud and replace it on my front drive tire since I had to re thread the stud before. I'm wondering though how to get back to the studs to remove them. I've gotten as far as taking the rotor off, but it's like you have to remove a whole section just to get to these or an axle or something o.O Anyway I was wondering if someone knows how or could tell me what I need to remove to do this? Pictures would be a plus if anybody has some

greenie in my haynes manual it says you just need to remove the dust cap and that nut that holds the hub in place and I should be able to get to this? Is there something i'm missing. It doesn't seem that complicated in fact it just mentions to use a hammer and chisel to get the two pieces off once the rotor is removed.

the easy way is to hammer the stud out, but getting the new one isn't easy without taking the whole thing off. The back plate gets in the way though.

On my wife's sentra, I use a c-clamp and then just put the wheel/lug nut on to pull it the rest of the way in.

I just read too that you can put a bunch of washers and just use a lug to "pull" it through.

ok for all the people saying your can you just hammer them in and out you are wrong, i just did a FRONT wheel stud the other day at work and you infact DO need to press out the hub and the wheel bearing, once the hub is pressed out the wheel bearing also needs to be replaced because some of the bearing stays attached to the hub.

it is not possible to hammer out the old stud or hammer in the the new one, part of the knuckle gets in the way so unless you want to start grinding away a large chunk of the knuckle which i dont suggest than go ahead.

Take it to a shop to get it done unless you have a press and the knowledge at home

For REAR wheel studs are easy, take off the drum, the spindle nut and slide off the hub, hammer out the old stud and hammer in the new one

Yep I have done them as well. Fronts definetely cannot be changed without pressing the hubs out. Its amazing how many times this topic comes up and how many people claim that the front hub can stay on, haha.
