Broken Wheel Stud, Need Help ASAP

To avoid explaining how I broke the wheel stud, Im just gonna get to the point. On the front driver side wheel hub, one of the studs broke in half. I know you can get a replacement stud, but is this a simple job I can do on my own or would I need to take it to a shop for repair? Any info about this repair would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm. I'm not entirely sure but I believe the front studs are part of the brake rotor so they can't be replaced. Again, I'm not sure.

they can be pressed out/pressed in, IIRC. I had one break on mine and since I was already buying a stud, I had them replace it too.

I haven't needed replacements on the Taco but on my Ranger if you broke a front wheel stud you had to buy a new rotor.

i've taken the rotor off before and beat one out with a hammer then replaced the new one by finding a nut the same diameter and tourqing it down with an impact.

Caliper and bracket off but no you won't need to bleed the brakes. Use something other than the brake line to hang the caliper by.

Edit: Actually I'm not sure now because I haven't needed to do brakes yet. Dammit!

I think I have a general idea of what to do now. I appreciate the help guys. Now does anybody know where to get a wheel stud besides ordering from the dealership?

Any autopart stores should keep a couple in stock. Just call around until you find one.

I just picked up 2 from advance auto for 2 bucks a piece. I think I may try to replace all 6 depending how easy the first one is to replace.

If you are thinking about doing all 6 then I would go ahead and buy them all. So that you don't have to tear your truck down twice. If you decide not to change them, then you will have spares for the future.

There's a good how-to on wheel stud replacement.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/whe...t-what-do.html

You shouldn't need a hammer. The brake rotor comes off by threading screws into it to push it off the hub. Then you press out the wheel stud with a C-clamp and socket (socket larger than the stud head, acting as a hollow spacer).

Just to get this straight, there's no possible way to get the studs out without removing the caliper correct?

Dude don't make it a hard thing, you can do it in your yard, get new stud and nut a big hammer and remove the wheel. put the nut on the end of the thread smack it with the bah (big ass hammer) once it pops out remove the nut.
put the new stud in and drive it into place with the nut. that's it. now if it's the rear your screwed you have to remove the axel. good luck dude

Ive never taken the calipers off so I'm not suprised I'm having trouble breaking them free. The entire brake assembly looks like a mess it has so much rust on it.

Got the Caliper off! Now its on to the rotor. Lemme know if this is right.

Spray PB Blaster on the outside edge here the hub and rotor meet

Now where on the rotor do i hit it with a rubber hammer?
