Yesterday I had a weird noise coming from the brakes and today I decided to investigate. To my surprise, when I started to undo the wheel nuts, one of them was quite hard, and very difficult to turn the wrench... From the early beginning, I knew what was going to be the result, a snapped wheel stud. I remember hitting a pothole while driving at 120/130kmh. I wonder if it could be the cause this. The stud broke at the base of the nut, leaving about 10/15mm of stud. The car is a year 2000, 1.8 Accord, and according to 2000 HONDA ACCORD 1.8ILS FRONT BRAKE - Original Honda Parts | Lings Honda | Honda Cars the stud can be replaced. Now, the big question, anyone knows if its possible to replace the stud without removing the wheel hub? If it's like this one, I should be in luck: How to replace a wheel stud bolt - YouTube If that doesn't work, I might need to remove the wheel hub to install the new stud. Meanwhile, saw a couple of guys who gridded the the back of the stud just enough to get room to install the stud: see minute 3:50 Lug Nut Stud Replacement - YouTube see minute 1:49 Wheel stud replacement - 93 Honda DelSol - YouTube Anyone with good info on this one?
