hammer the old one from the front, it will pop out the back
i take the caliper off, not sure if you have to or not
there has to be a free path behind the stud for it to push out through
then take the new one and hammer in from the back!
the threads on the end of the stud |||||| hold it in
but make sure that the hub has thread still left in it (the whole that the stud is going into - the inside should have a thread |||||| ) if it doesnt then the stud wont hold

hopefully i didnt make that confusing
havent done one in a while

yeah, the stud has lines on it going length wise, so when you hammer it in, it holds it. as mentioned above, here is step by step:

1 - put the front on jackstands and remove the wheel

2 - check to see if anything behind the stud will need to be remove to get it out, ie. calipers as mentioned above that may block it from popping out the back

3 - hammer the old one out from the front

4 - hammer the new one in. a puller i think is needed, to fully get the stud seated because there is no room behind to beat the new stud in place, canadian tire may have this under their rent a tool program. also as mentioned above, make sure the lines of the stud line up, it should not spin or anything, should be a nice tight fit.

5 - make sure its fully seated, and your done. I did this on a 1988 Chev Corsica, what a pain in the *** but not that hard.

I believe thats all there was too it, it really is a pain getting the new one in, even with a puller (not sure of exact name, it attaches to the stud and with a sled type weight, you bash it away from the stud which pulls it into place)

You have to remove the hub, if the front wheel is the problem then you have to remove the hub from the front knuckle/spindle, there is a chance you could damage the bearing, when you remove the front hub, the outer race of the bearing will come with it, re installing it somtimes damages the wheel bearing. If the rear is the wheel in question its a four minute job, remove the 32mm nut under the cap in the center of the hub, then hammer out the old stud from the threaded side, and hammer in the new one from the inner side, you can also, just install the stud by hand and use the 19mm nut for the wheel to pull it in. put the wheel on though, it makes it easier. Any questions pm me. I have done tonnes
