Default Re: replacing stud on front wheels

You'll see behind your rotor a black dust and dirt shield. That has a notch cut out of it to allow you to pull the lugs out. I believe it's at the top side, so spin your hub around until the lug matches that cutout and you should be able to get it out that way. All the manuals state that hammering on the lugs can cause your hub to shift and damage your bearings so I'd not go at it with a sledge hammer. I actually bought a hub and gear puller off ebay for like $9 that works great for pulling the lug bolts.

You can read more on this here on the forums.

I've not gone through it, but here is another instructional on ehow.
