Removing rear wheel studs

 

HI all, I've bought some new longer wheel studs and open ended nuts....I have all kit to remove the rear hubs etc...will the existing old studs need a professional press to get them out or can it be done with a good g-clamp or a 'hammer', or other ideas to remove ?...with suitable support behind the stud of course? ......cheers

Mine came out with a clout from a hammer. Screw clamp would do just as well. Big socket behind head that allows head to pass inside.

Like SM25T I just used a hammer to knock them out.

When putting the new ones in, I tried to get them in the same grooves created by the splines on the originals rather than cut new grooves. When you put the stud in, when turning it you should be able to feel it drop in. Hope that makes sense.

Regards

Once fitted make sure you double check for tightness after a couple of miles.

thanks all !

Jonathan....BC 'IM' tells me your mailbox is full !....my comment was when I follow you link and read the messages ...eg:

Correct...remove big nut/brake caliper and pads. Remove/wash/repack bearings while you are there. Easy job. See this post for better details: here   

 

the 'here' does not present as a hyper link !...so I cannot follow it :-(
