When I was tightening my lugs yesterday after doing my brakes I guess I must have twisted my lug on crooked (it went on easy, so I didn't think it was stripping) I tried to take it off today and it didn't come off..I had to snap the bolt off!! Anybody have a write up on how to replace one? I'm going to try to do it tomorrow, but definately Friday if not tomorrow.



Took this from a picture P11GDub posted.

Thanks guys!!

i jstreplaced 2 of mine......

1) remove wheel
2)unbolt caliber, support loose calipier with string or wire
3)use a breaker bar (or large pipe on the end of the ratchet) with a really good socket, break loose both 19mm bolts of touqre member
4)remove tourqe member
5) remove rotor
6) hammer out old stud (since urs is broke, u might wanna get a smaller bolt or thick scredriver & put that down to hti so u dont damage the rotor)
7)place new stud in rotor, tap int a bit,
8) place a slighly larger bolt (big enoguh to not catch on thread stud) over studs & then tighten oem stud down enough to pull the back of the stud completly in
9)replace, rotor, tourqe member, caliber, whell
10) have a beer & then wash ur hands

put the car on jackstands, take off the rim, with the car in neutral, rotate the wheel so that the stud that broke up is in the "12 o'clock" position. then take a hammer and bang it out, keep your hand behind the rotor [make sure the rotor isnt hot], right behind the stud to keep it from dropping between the dust shield.

then take the new stud, slide it in from behind, get an open end lug nut and a washer. Put the washer and nut on the nut once you slide it thru the hub. Then tighten the lug nut REALLY TIGHT, that will draw the stud into place. Then take off the open end lug and washer and put your wheel back on.

thats about it.

Thanks guys!!! I thought you didn't have to remove the caliper to remove the stud on a 99 G20? and a question on this..

"8) place a slighly larger bolt (big enoguh to not catch on thread stud) over studs & then tighten oem stud down enough to pull the back of the stud completly in"

Put a bigger nut around the stud and than put the lug nut on top of that and thread it onto the stud to pull it through? Thanks again!

lol yeah, I was reading everyones posts about just popping it out and I have that stupid dust shield too..so I would have to remove the rotors completely than, right? No special tools required other than my socket wrench and a hammer?

Thanks for the picture! But I still didn't see the 19mm bolt I need to remove lol..I think I know which one I need to take off. They are the only other 2 by the caliper that look significantly bigger than the smaller ones that you need to remove the caliper. Still waiting on more info. to see if removing the rotor is the only way to do this. I want to do this early morning on Friday because I have to be somewhere at 8:40 a.m.

Thanks again!

Anyone have the part number for the wheel stud I would need to order it? I looked on EverythingInfiniti, but can't find it and if you can also please give me the part number for Nissan (I live a lot closer to Nissan than Infiniti)

Thanks guys!!

Once again, thanks Mark!! lol..but I would still need the part number, because I'm only going to be at work tues, wed. and thurs. and I don't want to risk not being there when it gets there..and I would like to do this tomorrow (I have all my stuff delivered to my work address)..I just need the part number so I can drive over to Nissan after work and pick it up..can I ask Infiniti for the part number and carry it over to Nissan? Or is it a completely different part number? Oh, I probably didn't find it because I was searching under Wheel Stud and Lug lol

Thanks again!

You can't use all parts obviously.
The front stud is used in lots of cars here...
A32, B13, CA33, K11E, N15, N16, N16E, P11E, S14, T30, VM10, W10, WP11E, Y10, Z32

The rear is used on...
A32, B13, CA33, K11E, M11, N14, N15, N16, N16E, P11E, P12E, T30, VM10, W10, WP11E, Y10.

As you see, they're common shared parts.

I know I need to use a torque wrench, but I didn't over tighten. I guess when I was screwing the lug nut on with my hand somehow it started to go on crooked and when I started to tighten it with the tire iron it started to strip. When I was trying to remove it, it just kept spinning without coming off, so I had no choice but to snap it off intentionally since the threads were already stripped.
