Default Removing studs?

Hello guys and gals, quick question. How do you remove the wheel studs? Just pound them out with a hammer? Should I remove the brakes and rotors too? I have one stripped and I don't think trying to just use a die it is such a good idea, or will that work? Thanks for your help, again with a dumb question.

Seems like you know what to do. Generally, the rotor has to come off which means the caliper has to come off too. You can use a die if the threads aren't buggered too much, but use your better judgement.

They have a notch on the back of the hub. Spin the wheel so that the broken stub lines up with the notch and bang it out. I have done it without taking the rotor off but it does make it a lot easier.

yeah I pounded it out with a hammer, kind of scary since you got to hit it very hard. I removed the caliper and rotor before doing it

thanks a lot guys! came out just fine, although pounding in a new one is a bit tricky, you sortof have to hit it at an angle.

When removing a wheel stud, I put an old closed end lug nut over the stud before using a BFH. It prevents musrooming the stud end.

When fitting a new stud.. why not use an openended lugnut, wrench it down and have it pull the new stud into place?

When I was doing mine, I couldn't get the new one in all the way just by hammering, so I used this method with an impact gun and it pulled the stud in there all the way in about 2 seconds. This was after I spent 15 mins hammering on it as hard as I could. Wish I had tried the tightening method first

People have said this way will stretch the stud. I hammer it home as much as I can and then use the tightining to bring her home.
