Replace Lug Nut Stud

Hi there,

I'm new here, so bear with me. Aha.

I own an '86 Prelude Si, 2.0L.
I recently went to change my tires for winter; but one of my lug nut studs seems to have gotten mushed in the process.
I have the new stud. I went to change it today, but it turns out there's more work to be done than I was told. xD
I was told to just bash it out with a hammer.
But the HUB, or the Caliper seems to be in the way. I'm not sure.
My Haynes manual is pretty much no help for this one.

So I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the steps to take to replace a lug nut stud on the front wheel, of an '86 Prelude.

Thank a lot. =]

Re: Replace Lug Nut Stud

On many cars, Prelude included, the hub on the drive wheels prevents just pounding the stud out -- there's not enough clearance. The book procedure is to remove the knuckle, press out the wheel bearing (which usually destroys the bearing), remove the hub from the knuckle, then knock out the studs. I've seen some people grind a small section out of the hub to provide enough clearance, but I've never thought that a good idea.

Thanks for the replies guys.

What's the exact procedure to remove the hub?
I can't find anything about lug nut stud removal or anything in my book.

Shop (Helms) manual in the suspension section. Pages 18-11 to 18-17 in the '93 manual I'm looking at.

Re: Replace Lug Nut Stud

if u haven't done it already or for just future reference, u dont have to pull everything apart all u have to do is take a cutt off wheel and cut the stud down so u can slide it out. When u go to put the new one in use a grinder wheel and shape the stud into a kinda half moon shape this will allow the head of the stud to slide in this saves u tons of time

^^+1. I've replaced 3 on my 87 DX & that's exactly how I do it. Works like a charm.
