    Default Rear wheel studs

    I have two broken wheel studs: left rear (don't ask....)

    Apparently there is no space to press the rear ones out (as there is on the front), and you need to install a new hub assembly (incl the bearing).

    Does anybody have any experience of this? I don't have a press so I am going to have to get the work done at an indy or agent.

    So far the quotes have been quite extreme. Agents want R20k!

    What about a used hub assembly? Get a quote from LP4A.

    Have a look on YouTube- there are a few videos on rear hub removal/bearing replacment. You can remove the rear hub and press new studs in.

    Thanks Beesblaas.

    Agents want to install a new hub and wheel bearing. I think they don't see separate studs in their drawings so they assume the only way to get them is by buying a new hub. At R7500.

    Apparently the studs from a P38 are the same. So they can be pressed into the old hub after its separated from the bearing/carrier and the old broken studs are pressed out. No need for a new hub at all. But I need them to press the hub out of the carrier.

    Yes you need a press but at least you can use the old hub.
