How to Replace a Wheel Stud on a Nissan Altima

47

Check for an area at the back of the hub that allows you to remove the stud easily and a new one put back into the area. Line up the opening with the stud that needs replacing.

Place a firm whack on the wheel stud with a mallet so it drives the stud backward out the back of the hub. Put the new wheel stud into the same opening.

Use wheel bolts to tighten down the stud. Put them on the stud with the angle outward and as you tighten these down, they pull the stud through the hole. Check the back and stop when you see the head flat against the hub. Use an impact wrench if you have one, so the job’s easier

Take off the bolts. Start the process to replace the parts you took off the wheel. You should change the wheel nut as you replace the stud.
