How to Replace Wheel Stud on Mitsubishi Lancer


The wheel studs on the Mitsubishi Lancer model cars are the main components that hold the wheels to the wheel hub assembly. The wheels are attached to the wheel studs by lug nuts. When the lug nuts are tightened with a lug wrench or a tire tool, the lug nuts compress to the the facing of the wheel rim. The wheel studs withstand a lot of pressure from the tight wheel and from the weight of the vehicle. If the wheel studs break, they will need to be replaced.

Tools Used: Tools, Flat-head screwdriver, Lug wrench, Jack, Jack stands, Pry bar, 1/2-inch drive ratchet, 1/2-inch drive socket set, Bungee cord, Rubber mallet, New wheel studs
