    So my buddy who has been working as a mechanic for almmost 10 years forgot to tighten my lugnuts back up after he took my tire off. I drove almost 10 miles without any noises etc. when I got home, one of the nuts were missing and the lug stud went back behind the rotor. has anyone else had this happen? All im gonna do is take the caliper and rotor off, pull out the loose stud and replace it. if anyone knows anything else to do lemme know

    just do a thorough inspection of everything once you have the caliper and rotor apart. make sure to check all the studs for damage. your plan sounds solid. is your friend going to do this repair for you?:p
