Default Replacing Wheel Stud on front of 06 sti

SOOO...i was going to put my winter tires/bbs wheels on my car so i took my Volks off and did a quick brake check and then started putting on all my wheels. 5 min later i was going to impact on my "all ready hand started lug nuts" and one of the lug nuts on the RF wheel stuck about 75% of the way on. (i am thinking it was some gummed up threads on the nut or somwthing) i went to loosen it and SNAP!! there goes one of my wheel studs
so the next day i got a wheel stud and figured out how to put it on. HERE IS WHAT I DID!

1. Jack up and take off the wheel.
2. remove the brake caliper. (two 19mm bolts on the back)
3. next your going to have to remove the bolt holding the brake hose up "i believe" This is going to allow you to remove the rotor.
4. Screw the bolt into the holes nearest the center of the hub. IT WILL FIT! and this will remove the rotor.
5. now you hammer the bad stud out.
6. put the other one through.
7. pull it through with washers and an EXTRA LUG NUT. NOT WITH THE O/E nut. it wont work cuz its closed end. so buy an open end. mine was a 12x1.25
8. now put the bolt back you used to press the rotor off. replace rotor. then caliper. then wheel and torque all the lugs down and hit the new one a few times. making sure its all the way through.
9. lower car and enjoy driving with all 20 lugs attached
So there ya go. thats my experience with replacing a stud on my 2006 sti

Default Thanks!

Hey thanks great job, it's just what I'm gonna do today on my 09 WRX now that you explained it including nut sizes. Where did you get the stud, stealership? I hate waiting for days to get one, they stock very little here in Florida.

SO THE SCREW THAT HOLDS THE BRAKE HOSE WILL FIT INTO THE HOLES TO PUSH THE ROTOR OFF?

PLS PM ME THE ANSWER =)

THANX!! AND SORRY FOR CAPS

it's an M8 hole, any M8 bolt will do. The rotors get kind of seized in place, so this screw-jacks them off of the hub.

I just used a rubber mallet to bang the sht out of the rotor and it came free. After jacking up the car and taking the wheels off, the rest of the work took me 10 minutes to do.

I bought studs from a local dealership, just start calling all of them near you, they most likely will have some. I paid around $3 for each and bought 5, just in case

ya. you can hit the rotor if you would like but there is a possibility of it cracking, chipping, or warping. using the bolt was easier in my opinion. but to each there own i guess. and i got my lugs for free! i love working at a tire shop
