Default Need help fixing a lug bolt.

I was trying to remove my front left tire and one of the lugs was crossthreaded and the lug bolt ended up snapping. Does anyone know How to put in a new lug bolt? I managed to get the old one out, but only because it was snapped in half. Any suggestions or links to web sites with Diagrams would be greatly appeciated. In fact if anyone have any kind of blueprints or diagrams of the front fender and its compontents that would be nice to look at too as i am replacing the fender.

Well here is the procedure but it is really cheap at most tire stores to have them pop out the bad one and have a new one pressed in.


WHEEL MOUNTING STUDS -
FRONT
REMOVAL
Use the following procedure to remove and install
one of five studs on one wheel hub.
(1) Raise the vehicle. Refer to Hoisting in Lubrication
And Maintenance.
(2) Remove the front tire and wheel assembly.
(3) Remove the two guide pin bolts securing the
front disc brake caliper to the steering knuckle (Fig.
26).
(4) Remove the disc brake caliper from the steering
knuckle. The caliper is removed by first tipping
either the top (right side) or bottom (left side) of the
caliper away from the brake rotor, then pulling the
caliper off the opposite end’s caliper slide abutment
(on the knuckle) and rotor.
(5) Hang the caliper out of the way using a wire
hanger or cord. Do not support the caliper by letting
it hang by the hydraulic hose.
(6) Remove any retainer clips from the wheel
mounting studs. Remove the brake rotor from the
front hub (Fig. 26).
CAUTION: Do not hammer wheel mounting studs
out of the hub. Damage to the wheel bearing will
occur, leading to premature bearing failure.
Fig. 24 Wheel And Cover Mounting
1 - WHEEL MOUNTING NUTS
2 - BOLT-ON WHEEL COVER
(7) Install a wheel mounting nut on the wheel
mounting stud being removed from the hub far
enough so the threads on the stud are even with end
of lug nut. Rotate the hub so the stud requiring
removal is aligned with notch cast into front of the
steering knuckle. Install Remover, Special Tool
C-4150A, on hub flange and wheel stud (Fig. 27).
(8) Tighten the remover, pushing the wheel mounting
stud out the rear of the hub flange. When the
shoulder of the stud is past the flange, remove the
remover from the hub. Remove the nut from the
stud, then remove the stud from the flange.
INSTALLATION
Use the following procedure to remove and install
one of five studs on one wheel hub.
(1) Install the wheel mounting stud in the flange
of hub from the rear side. Install several washers
and a wheel mounting nut on the stud (Fig. 28). The
wheel mounting nut must be installed with the flat
side of the wheel mounting nut against the washers
to eliminate binding.
(2) Tighten the wheel mounting nut. This will pull
the wheel mounting stud into the flange of the hub.
When the head of the stud is fully seated against the
rear of the hub flange, remove the wheel mounting
nut and washers from the stud.
(3) Install the brake rotor on the hub (Fig. 26).
(4) Install the disc brake caliper (with pads) on the
brake rotor and steering knuckle. The left side caliper
is installed by first sliding the top of the caliper
past the top abutment on the steering knuckle to
hook the top edge of the caliper, then pushing the
lower end of the caliper into place against the
knuckle (Fig. 29). The right side caliper is installed
by first sliding the bottom edge of the caliper past
the lower abutment on the steering knuckle to hook
the lower edge of the caliper, then pushing the top of
the caliper into place against the steering knuckle.
(5) Install the two guide pin bolts securing the
front disc brake caliper to the steering knuckle (Fig.
26). Tighten the guide pin bolts to a torque of 22 N·m
(192 in. lbs.).
(6) Install the tire and wheel assembly. Install the
wheel mounting nuts and tighten them to a torque of
135 N·m (100 ft. lbs.).

Not a website. It is off of the CD repair manual and the figures don't copy when I cut and paste the .pdf file.
