Hi! My name is Nate McCullough on behalf of
expertvillage.com. In this clip we are going to talk about the proper way to remove a busted
wheel stud. As you can see here, the short stud is the one that has been busted off and
there is really only one way to knock those out and that’s with a hammer. You want to
take care not to strike the hub surface as well as any of your other studs. If you damage
one of these studs significantly enough, you are going to end up doing the job again. As
I said the only way to really get one out is to strike them with a hammer. You are going
to want to make sure to wear safety glasses anytime you are using a hammer. Go ahead and
give it a couple of good shots and that is it. As you can see, this is our busted stud.
That is quite a significant amount; shorter than the other studs. This actually broke
off inside the lug nut when I had a flat tire one day.
