A broken stud causes great concern for the driver. Even though it’s just one stud, it places extra stress on the others and can cause them to snap, too. You can replace the stud on your Nissan Maxima with just a little mechanical ability, the right tools and some brute strength.
Tools Used: Tools, Jack, lug wrench and jack tools, Blocks, Replacement stud, Vise-grips, Open end wrench, Crescent wrench, Dead blow hammer or heavy mallet, Extra wheel bolts and wheel nuts, Impact wrench (if available) or 1/2-inch long handled drive socket wrench
Replace Wheel Stud
Buy a new stud. If you are unaware of the size, wait until you take it off and take it to the parts store with you. It’s a good idea to inspect the other studs at the same time to see if you need to replace them too.
