    So like the title says, I have one broken bolt on the passenger side wheel bearing. I have no idea how to fix this...

    Do I have to get a whole new wheel bearing? Do I only get one bolt to replace the broken one in the wheel bearing?

    Pics would help... an ez out extractor might help you

    might have to drill it out, then use a tap to thread the hole.

    Which bolt?

    One of the four that holds the wheel bearing plate to the spindle? OR one of the six wheel studs on the hub assembly which keeps your rims mounted to the truck?

    Either way they are replaceable. If one of the four bolts keeping the bearing plate to the truck, you will likely have to remove the assembly from the truck to remove the broken stud, then press apart the bearing plate / hub assembly to replace the bolt.

    If one of the wheel studs, you should be able to punch it through with a drift/hammer and simply pull the new one in place with a lug nut.

    Easy peasy...

    It's one of the 6 wheels studs that broke. So do I have to take the wheel off, then somehow get the broke bolt out thru the back? And then how do I install a new one in there afterwards?
