With Disc Brakes
- Raise and support the appropriate end of the vehicle safely using jackstands, then remove the wheel.
- Unbolt the caliper assembly and support it aside with a piece of wire or coat hanger. Do not disconnect the brake fluid line. For more details, please refer to Brakes of this repair guide.
- Remove the outer wheel bearing and lift off the rotor. For details on wheel bearing removal, installation and adjustment, please refer to General Information and Maintenance of this repair guide.
- Properly support the rotor using press bars, then drive the stud out using an arbor press.
If a press is not available, CAREFULLY drive the old stud out using a blunt drift. MAKE SURE the rotor is properly and evenly supported or it may be damaged.

- Clean the stud hole with a wire brush and start the new stud with a hammer and drift pin. Do not use any lubricant or thread sealer.
